Them: Limited Series (2021)

The first season, set in the 1950s, centers a Black family who moves from North Carolina to an all-white Los Angeles neighborhood during the period known as The Great Migration. The family’s idyllic home becomes ground zero where malevolent forces, next door and otherworldly, threaten to taunt, ravage and destroy them.
Premiere Date: April 9, 2021
Description: Frank is a 33-year-old catastrophe and misanthropic fantasist in arrested development who’s convinced that the world owes him. He’s also our hero. He has a tenuous hold on reality, a single room in his mother’s home, an ex he can’t get over and a loyal best friend, Doofus. This is the hilarious story of a man’s hapless search for respect. We don’t want him to succeed, but it’s fun to watch him try.
