Amazon Prime Video greenlights anthology horror series ‘Lore’

MUMBAI: US and global online retail major and content creator Amazon has greenlit the Amazon Original Series ‘Lore’.

Based on the podcast of the same name, which has over 3.2 million monthly listens, the unscripted horror anthology series will present tales dealing with frightening, psychologically disturbing, and often paranormal true events that have spawned modern-day nightmares.

The 10-episode season will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the US, UK, Germany, Austria and Japan in 2017, and be available via the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online at Amazon.com/originals.

‘Lore’ combines narration, historical mixed media, and dramatic scenes to bring to life terrifying but true stories. Celebrating the origins of the horror genre, ‘Lore’ explores the real-life stories behind pop culture’s most legendary horror characters and myths, such as vampires, zombies, werewolves, ghosts, serial killers and witches.

“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. The series will be a truly unnerving and exciting experience that Prime members will not forget,” said Amazon Originals head of unscripted Conrad Riggs.

“Being a horror aficionado, Aaron Mahnke’s Lore podcast captivated me from the very beginning as it explores the terrifying truth behind the world’s most frightening legends. “And just as Mahnke revolutionized the serial podcast, Amazon is reinventing the unscripted series—and I couldn’t be more excited about the mashup,” said Hurd.

“We are thrilled to be working with Gale Anne Hurd and Amazon to bring Aaron Mahnke’s incredible horror franchise to television. ‘Lore’ has inspired nightmares for millions of fans while capturing our own imaginations, and we couldn’t be more excited to materialise these real-life horror stories in a way never seen before,” said Owens and Silverman.
