Ric Catches Up with Aaron Mahnke, the creator, producer, and host
of the hit podcast (Best of iTunes 2015 & 2016) and
Co-Executive Producer of the series.
Based on the popular podcast of the same name, Lore has an average of five million monthly listens. The anthology series presents the frightening and often disturbing tales based on real people and events that have led to our modern-day myths and legends. Lore will feature fan-favorite episodes from the podcast, including the tale of a boy given a doll that seems to have a sinister life of its own; a family whose home appears to be inhabited by a spirit from the other side; and a German village that hunts for a murderous creature.
Lore, featuring Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day), Kristen Bauer van Straten (True Blood), Adam Goldberg (Fargo) Holland Roden (Teen Wolf), Colm Feore (House of Cards) and Campbell Scott (The Amazing Spider-Man), combines documentary footage, narration, historical mixed media and cinematic scenes to bring to life terrifying, but true stories.
Launched in March 2015 by Aaron Mahnke, the podcast Lore has generated a massive audience, was named “Best of” in 2015 and 2016 by Apple, and was listed as one of the “15 podcasts you need to hear in 2016” by Entertainment Weekly. The first book in Mahnke’s three-book series, The World of Lore, will be published on October 10 by Del Rey Books.
