The highly anticipated anthology set to premiere on Amazon delivers terror in a whole new way!
How well do you really know your neighbors? Well, the latest work of terror-filled art delivered to us from creator Little Marvin (The Time is Now) and super-producer Lena Waithe (Queen & Slim, The Chi) just may cause you to give a little side-eye when the friendly family across the street invites you over. Them is an anthology series set in 1950s Los Angeles and at the center is the Emory family, a Black family from North Carolina who just moved into an all-white neighborhood. With their sites set on an idyllic new life in sunny California, their dream quickly becomes a nightmare when their home becomes a house of horrors as mysterious things begin to happen, threatening both their peace and sanity. Infusing terror in a way that can be perfectly described as supernatural malevolence with an undeniable racial overtone, Marvin and Waithe put together an all-star cast to give beautiful, emotional life to Them.
The ten-episode series centers around Henry Emory (Ashley Thomas) and his wife Livia “Lucky” Emory (Deborah Ayorinde) and their kids Ruby Lee (Shahadi Wright Joseph) and Gracie Emory (Melody Hurd). The series begins with Henry moving his family across the country for his new job in the engineering field but he and his family are treated with disdain by their neighbors from the moment they arrive. As the series continues to unfold, the Emory family continues their experience one harrowing event after the other as they fight to stand their ground and keep the family safe. Also featuring Anika Noni Rose, Brooke Smith, and Derek Phillips, Them is sure to have you on the edge of your seat for the full ten episodes and we had the opportunity to talk to some of the amazing cast members about their experience!
