Apple inks multi-year overall deal with 'Lovecraft Country' creator Misha Green

in General Discussion
Misha Green will create and develop new streaming series for Apple TV+ in a deal that comes mere days after HBO announced that "Lovecraft Country" will not return for a second season.




Green is also known for co-creating and executive producing the WGN America Series "Underground." The series told the story of the men and women who fought for their freedom on the Underground Railroad.

Green has also worked on popular shows such as "Sons of Anarchy," and "Heroes," and will make her first foray into directing on the upcoming "Tomb Raider 2."

As Variety points out, the deal reunites Green with Apple's Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht, who ran Sony Pictures Television, the company that produced "Underground."

Apple recently landed a first-look deal with production company MountainA, formed by Natalie Portman and Sophie Mas.

    Without spoilers, it's entirely unsurprising Lovecraft Country isn't getting a second season. I don't really see how it could have one.

    I look forward to seeing the result of this deal. Should be interesting!

    Yep, especially since the series was based on a novel. Her teaser for a possible 2nd season sounded... uninspiring. But I am interested in how this turns out. A good path for Apple TV+ with this deal, the one with MountainA and the A24 deal some time ago.

    Yeah LC was a dud for us. It was just kinda boring and silly. Won’t miss it. 

    Hope the new project is good.
