The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Ann Hurd, along with Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens’ Propagate Content, will adapt horror podcast Lore as an hourlong anthology series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Propagate plans to shop the series to broadcast and cable.
Supernatural author Aaron Mahnke’s Lore, tag lined with ‘Sometimes the truth is more frightening than fiction’ and boasting millions of listeners, explores the origins of horror characters and myths such as vampires, zombies, werewolves, ghosts, serial killers and witches. All of the information is fact-based.
The anthology will include a blend of narration, historical mixed media and scripted scenes, with each episode featuring a new lore.
“I’m excited to partner with Propagate on this truly thrilling and disturbing project,” Hurd said. “Lore is the real stuff that should keep you up at night.”
