Amazon Prime's new horror anthology Them takes a sledgehammer to the 50s idyllic suburbia when a Black family moves into an all-white Los Angeles neighborhood. Show creator Little Marvin, and stars Deborah Ayorinde, Ashley Thomas and Anika Noni Rose discuss how this show deals with America's racist past.
From Little Marvin and Lena Waithe, Them is a limited anthology series that explores terror in America. The first season, 1950s-set Covenant, 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.
Them is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
