Listeners of Aaron Mahnke's podcast about strange occurrences in real history will get to see some of those stories come to life on screen in Amazon Prime Video's six-episode Lore series, which is teased in a new clip that debuted at the show's New York Comic Con panel hosted by Kevin Smith.
At the New York Comic Con panel, Lore executive producer Gale Anne Hurd said that "the scariest stories are true and this is a way to bring it to life." The show's narrator (and creator of the podcast it's based on) Aaron Mahnke reinforced Hurd's stance, saying, "I like to focus on stories that are on the fuzzy line of reality," while one of the show's actors, Robert Patrick, shared his excitement for the series, saying, "The chance to do a period piece and go deep with the character was a lot of fun."
