Mike Colter has joined Hulu’s horror anthology Monsterland based on the short stories from The Visible Filth author Nathan Ballingrud’s collection, North American Lake Monsters.
Deadline reports the anthology series is full of encounters with mermaids, fallen angels, and other strange beasts and follows broken people driven to desperate acts in an attempt to repair their lives, ultimately showing there is a thin line between man and monster.
Colter will star in the episode “Newark, New Jersey” which centers on a grief-stricken husband (Colter) who blames himself after his daughter disappears under his supervision. Guilty and despairing, he refuses to believe she is dead and is unable to move on with his life or be emotionally available to his wife.
Annapurna Television produces the series which is created, written and executive produced by Mary Laws (Succession, Preacher) and executive produced by Lucan Toh (An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn, Under the Shadow), Babak Anvari (Under the Shadow), Megan Ellison and Sue Naegle. Ali Krug will serve as a co-executive producer.
