Amazon’s new original series Lore is showing off a short teaser trailer and just announced an October 13, 2017 season one premiere. All six episodes of the horror anthology series from executive producers Ben Silverman (The Office), Howard T. Owens (The Biggest Loser), Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead), Brett-Patrick Jenkins (Face Off), Glen Morgan (X-Files), Jon Halperin, and Mark Mannucci (A Year in Space) will be available on October 13th to Prime Video members.
Season one of the anthology series stars Robert Patrick (Scorpion), Holland Roden (Teen Wolf), Kristin Bauer van Straten (True Blood), Adam Goldberg (Fargo), Colm Feore (House of Cards), and Campbell Scott (The Amazing Spider-Man). Lore is based on the award-winning podcast of the same name which was launched by Aaron Mahnke in 2015. Mahnke’s also planning a three-book series inspired by the podcast, with book number one of the series targeting an October 10th release.
“Lore is a unique hybrid series that presents meticulously-researched true life tales through a variety of mediums, in order to surprise and delight, and even unsettle,” said Conrad Riggs, Head of Unscripted, Amazon Originals. “We are thrilled to once again provide Prime members unprecedented access into a world they thought they knew.”
The Plot: Lore combines documentary footage, narration, historical mixed media and cinematic scenes to bring to life terrifying, but true stories. Celebrating the origins of the horror genre, Lore explores the real-life tales behind pop culture’s most legendary horror myths, such as vampires, changelings, werewolves, séances and possessed dolls. The series will feature fan-favorite episodes from the podcast, including the tale of a boy given a doll that seems to have a sinister life of its own; a family whose home appears to be inhabited by a spirit from the other side; and a German village that hunts for a murderous creature.
