The story is set during the vibrant Harlem Renaissance of 1924, when a fractured family of once-great monster hunters faces an unimaginable evil that descends upon New York City. For generations, the Sangeryes have hunted and cured those infected by a supernatural force that feeds off the prejudice of the era, transforming human beings into hideous monsters. With most of the family dead, and the surviving Sangeryes at odds between saving or killing the creatures, they must overcome the wounds of the past in the hopes of thwarting an invasion.
The acclaimed series received nominations for a 2019 Eisner Award for Best New Series and a 2019 Ringo award for Best Series.
King is coming off her acclaimed directing debut on the Amazon Studios pic One Night In Miami, for which she was nominated for a DGA Award and an NAACP Image Award; the film also received three Oscar nominations. As an actress, she won the 2019 Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk and is a four-time Emmy winner. She is represented by ICM Partners, John Carrabino, and Gang, Tyre, Brown & Passman, Inc.
