Set in an alternate 1948 Los Angeles where everyone uses magic, well everyone but private investigator H. P.

It’s the latter use of magic that has Police Chief Bradbury (Charles Hallahan) often calling on Lovecraft for help as he refuses to use magic in any way shape or form.

Note to HBO Executives: With shows like True Blood and Sleepy Hollow proving that there is a market for this kind of stuff on television I don’t see why your network isn’t jumping at the chance to bring this back as a weekly series.
