Misha Green          

Co-Creator, Executive Producer & Showrunner, Known For "Lovecraft Country"

Misha Green is an American television writer, director and producer. She is best known as the showrunner of the supernatural series "Lovecraft Country" on HBO and creator and executive producer of the historical drama "Underground." She is a former staff writer for "Heroes" and "Sons of Anarchy."

In 2016, together with fellow "Heroes" alumnus Joe Pokaski, Green created "Underground," a period drama about the Underground Railroad, which takes place primarily in the Antebellum South and bordering free states of the North. The first season premiered on WGN America on March 9, 2016 to a positive critical response. The series was a watershed moment in television, using deeply nuanced and humanizing portrayals to depict the horrific experiences of enslaved people in America for a contemporary audience. In 2020, Green centered the mid-20th century African-American experience in another type of horror, teaming up with Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams to present "Lovecraft Country." Based on Matt Ruff's novel of the same name, the series tackles race issues, set in the 1950s, while also utilizing elements of H.P. Lovecraft. The show received a "straight-to-series" order from HBO. In January 2021, Green was chosen to write and direct the upcoming "Tomb Raider" sequel in her feature directorial debut.
