‘The Walking Dead’ exec producer Gale Anne Hurd is teaming with Ben Silverman and Propagate Content to produce ‘Lore’, the popular podcast as a horror anthology series for TV.
Lore, created by Aaron Mahnke, has more than 2 million listeners each month tuning in for the 100 percent fact-based tales that are brought to life via heavily researched eyewitness accounts, documented stories and historical events. The podcast, one of iTunes’ Best of 2015, was launched in March 2015 and in more than 30 installments explored the true origins of pop culture’s most legendary horror characters and myths such as vampires, zombies, werewolves, ghosts, serial killers and witches.
The anthology will, like the podcast, offer a blend of narration, historical mixed media and cinematically shot scripted scenes featuring top talent. Each episode will feature a new lore. Produced by Propagate Content and Hurd’s Valhalla Entertainment, Lore will be exec produced by Hurd, Silverman, Owens, Brett-Patrick Jenkins and Mahnke, who also penned supernatural books including Indian Summer, Consumed and Grave Suspicion. The project was shepherded by Valhalla vp development Phillip Kobylanski, with Propgate development topper Jenkins bringing Lore to the company after reaching out to Mahnke.
