The series, an adaptation of the popular podcast of the same name, will also be executive produced by the podcast’s creator, Aaron Mahnke, and Brett-Patrick Jenkins.
The news was announced on Thursday during a New York Comic-Con panel.
Launched in March 2015, “Lore” examines a new dark tale from history and presents it in a style that’s been compared to a campfire experience. The podcast has 3.2 monthly listens.
“Lore is a thrilling podcast with a rabid following, and we jumped at the opportunity to work with Gale Anne Hurd, Ben Silverman and Howard Owens to develop it into a series for Amazon Prime members,” said Amazon Originals Unscripted boss Conrad Riggs today in a statement. “The series will be a truly unnerving and exciting experience that Prime members will not forget.”
“X-Files” alum Glenn Morgan will serve as showrunner. Howard T. Owens of Propagate Content will also executive produce.
“We’re going to be combining historical mixed-media narration and reenactments to bring those nightmares to life,” Hurd said at NYCC.
Potential topics for the series include horror staples like werewolves, zombies, vampires and ghosts.
