Deadline has announced that Harold Perrineau (Lost) will lead Epix’s upcoming sci-fi horror series From. Created by Josh Griffin, the series is about a small American town that traps everyone who enters it inside the town and is surrounded by terrifying night time creatures.
From “unravels the mystery of a nightmarish town in middle America that traps all those who enter. As the unwilling residents fight to keep a sense of normalcy and search for a way out, they must also survive the threats of the surrounding forest – including the terrifying creatures that come out when the sun goes down.”
Perrineau will play Boyd Stevens, “the sheriff whose Draconian rules have held the fragile town together, even as he searches for a way to escape this seemingly inescapable nightmare.”
Perrineau is best know for his Lost role as Michael Dawson, a father trapped on the island whose only goal was to protect his young son Walt from the island’s natural threats and The Others. For From, he is reuniting with his Lost director Jack Bender, who is set to direct the first four episodes of the series.
From is a co-production between Epix and MGM International Television. Also producing is Midnight Radio’s Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg and 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 Canada’s Halifax, Nova Scotia for a 2022 premiere on Epix. Outside the U.S., From will air internationally on Netflix.
