It was announced at New York Comic Con that the horror podcast Lore which explores the origins of paranormal creatures like vampires and zombies was picked up for an Amazon exclusive television show. It’s being produced by The Walking Dead‘s executive producer Gale Anne Hurd. There will be a ten episode season debuting in 2017.
‘I’m obsessed with horror and mythology,” Hurd told the crowd at NYCC in obvious understatement. “In bringing Lore to Amazon,” she added of her unscripted debut, “we are going to examine the truth behind the horror genre – something we love.”
Launched in March last year, Lore’s look at true-life scary stories, the paranormal and the origins of vampires, zombies and the horror genre in general now has over 3.2 million 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.”
