Based on Matt Ruff’s novel, the series is set to release on HBO. Monekypaw Production, Bad Robot Production, and Warner Bros. production revolves around Atticus, who goes on a road trip with his friend Letitia and uncle George in search of his missing father. On his trip, they face racist terror and terrifying monsters of Jim Crow America.
Atticus is a person who always has a novel in his hand and a happy person despite the injustice in Jim Crow America. His father, on the other hand, is secretive and hard-headed. Thus, Atticus was close to his uncle. His uncle introduced him to this whole new, different world of pulp novels.
Letitia is an artist who travels around the country, protesting for civil rights. Her half-sister, Ruby, also struggles a lot, but her struggles are not paid well. Hippolyta Freeman is a housewife.
