Deadline announced that Harold Perrineau (Lost) will direct Epix’s upcoming sci-fi horror series From. Created by Josh Griffin, the series is about a small American town that traps anyone who enters the town and is surrounded by terrifying night creatures.
From “Unravels the mystery of a nightmarish Central American city that imprisons everyone who enters. While the reluctant residents fight to maintain a sense of normalcy and find a way out, they must also survive the threats posed by the surrounding forest – including the terrifying creatures that emerge when the sun sets. “
Perrineau will play Boyd Stevens, “the sheriff whose draconian rules have held the fragile city together, even as he searches for a way to escape this seemingly inescapable nightmare.”
Perrineau is best known for his Lost role as Michael Dawson, a father trapped on the island whose sole purpose was to protect his young son Walt from the island’s natural threats and The Others. In front of From, he reunites with his Lost director Jack Bender, who will direct the first four episodes of the series.
From is a co-production between Epix and MGM International Television. Also producing is Josh Appelbaum of Midnight Radio, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg as well Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo through ABGO. Griffin and Bender will executive produce alongside Midnight’s Adrienne Erickson.
Production will begin later this month in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada for a 2022 premiere on Epix. Outside the US, From is broadcast internationally on Netflix.
