George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search
of his missing father. What follows is a struggle to survive and
overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying
monsters that could be ripped from an H.P. Lovecraft paperback.

(Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker). Also including showrunner Misha
Green (Underground), director Daniel Sackheim (Game of Thrones and True
Detective), Ben Stephenson and Bill Carraro.
