Them Teaser Trailer: Lena Waithe and Little Marvin’s Upcoming Horror Anthology Series

them

After creating shows like The Chi and Twenties and writing the screenplay for Queen & Slim, Lena Waithe is now teaming up with Little Marvin to bring a brand new horror series to Amazon Prime. The show is called Them and it is described as a limited anthology series, which I assume means that the story and cast will change with each season. The first season is set in the 1950s and it revolves around a black family who move from North Carolina to an all-white Los Angeles neighborhood and find themselves threatened by malevolent forces, both supernatural and otherwise. It feels a bit reminiscent of Lovecraft Country and Us and the marketing certainly evokes an association with Jordan Peele even though he is actually not involved. With a cast that includes Deborah Ayorinde, Ashley Thomas, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Melody Hurd, Ryan Kwanten and Alison Pill, Them arrives on Amazon on April 9th. Check out the teaser trailer below and let us know what you think.
