Gale Anne Hurd, executive producer of The Walking Dead, has optioned the popular "nonfiction horror" podcast Lore to adapt it as an hour-long TV anthology series, THR reports.

Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens' Propagate Content will produce along with Hurd, and they're currently shopping the concept to networks.

Lore launched in March 2015 and already has more than 30 rigorously-researched episodes examining the history behind horror stories, urban legends, true crime, and more.

According to the report, the TV series will "offer a blend of narration, historical mixed media and cinematically shot scripted scenes featuring top talent."

"I’m excited to partner with Propagate on this truly thrilling and disturbing project," Hurd said. "Lore is the real stuff that should keep you up at night."
