Based on the popular podcast of the same name, which has over 3.2 million monthly listens, the unscripted horror anthology series will present tales dealing with frightening, psychologically disturbing, and often paranormal true events that have spawned modern-day nightmares.

Lore combines narration, historical mixed media, and dramatic scenes to bring to life terrifying but true stories. Celebrating the origins of the horror genre, Lore explores the real-life stories behind pop culture's most legendary horror characters and myths, such as vampires, zombies, werewolves, ghosts, serial killers and witches. Launched in March 2015 by Aaron Mahnke, Lore has over 3.2 million monthly listens and was named "Best of 2015" by iTunes and one of the "15 podcasts you need to hear in 2016" by Entertainment Weekly.

"Lore is a thrilling podcast with a rabid following, and we jumped at the opportunity to work with Gale Anne Hurd, Ben Silverman and Howard Owens to develop it into a series for Amazon Prime members," said Conrad Riggs, Head of Unscripted, Amazon Originals. "The series will be a truly unnerving and exciting experience that Prime members will not forget."

"Being a horror aficionado, Aaron Mahnke's Lore podcast captivated me from the very beginning as it explores the terrifying truth behind the world's most frightening legends," said Hurd. "And just as Mahnke revolutionized the serial podcast, Amazon is reinventing the unscripted series--and I couldn't be more excited about the mashup."

"We are thrilled to be working with Gale Anne Hurd and Amazon to bring Aaron Mahnke's incredible horror franchise to television," said Owens and Silverman. "Lore has inspired nightmares for millions of fans while capturing our own imaginations, and we couldn't be more excited to materialize these real-life horror stories in a way never seen before."

Lore is slated to be produced by Propagate Content and Valhalla Entertainment, with Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead), Ben Silverman (The Office), Howard T. Owens (The Biggest Loser), Brett-Patrick Jenkins (Face Off) and Aaron Mahnke lined up as Executive Producers. Glen Morgan (X-Files) is attached as showrunner.
