Joining J.J. Abram’s Stephen King adaptation Castle Rock and Blumhouse’s Into the Dark, Nathan Ballingrud’s short story collection North American Lake Monsters is getting its own adapted Hulu anthology series.
The first season of the currently untitled, Annapurna Television-produced series will feature eight episodes, and tackle a slew of monsters and creatures.
“Through encounters with Gothic beasts, including fallen angels and werewolves, broken people are driven to desperate acts in an attempt to repair their lives, ultimately showing there is a thin line between man and beast,” the show’s logline reads.
The newly greenlit series is created, written and executive produced by Mary Laws. Known for the AMC series Preacher, Laws is no stranger to fantastical storylines. She also co-wrote the screenplay for Nicolas Winding Refn’s fairly divisive 2016 arthouse film The Neon Demon. Laws is assisted in executive producing by Lucan Toh and Babak Anvari, who will also direct.
The greenlit show comes shortly after Disney assumed full control of Hulu after their deal with Comcast.
