The Peele-produced show focuses on Atticus Black and his group traveling across a Jim Crow America in the 1950s, facing racial horror alongside horrors that could be ripped from a Lovecraft novel.
Jordan Peele has done a lot of producing and directing in the world of horror, but Abruptio gives him a chance to act it out. The film stars James Marsters as Les Hackel, a man who wakes up with a bomb strapped to his neck, who has to act out heinous crimes to stay alive.
