In this exclusive interview with Made in Hollywood, 'Them' stars Deborah Ayorinde, Ashley Thomas, Anika Noni Rose, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Melody Hurd, Ryan Kwanten, and Alison Pill join the show's creator and Executive Producer Little Marvin to talk about the first season of their Amazon Original series.
Here's the official description of the series:
THEM is a limited anthology series that explores terror in America. The first season, 1950s-set COVENANT centers around a Black family who move 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.
In the interview above both Little Marvin and Deborah Ayorinde discuss how the fears and anxieties they've personally gone through are represented in this story set in the 1950s. The showrunner and actors Pill and Kwanten also talk about how the series addresses the practice of "redlining" and the long-term damage that it could do to black communities. Meanwhile, the actors playing the Emory family, Ayorinde, Thomas, Wright Joseph, and Hurd all share how much they felt like a real family even when the cameras stopped shooting.
'Them' is now available on Amazon Prime.
