When The Devil Calls You Home

Brittany Clemons

A journalist discovers a devilish conspiracy when she unearths a dark family secret that may hold the answer to her grandmother’s mysterious death and an unsolved lynching of her hometown’s past.
Project Status:In development, pilot script available
Project Description:

When a failed journalist returns to her southern hometown to bury her grandmother, she inadvertently discovers her next story: her grandmother’s mysterious death echos an unsolved lynching from the town’s past. As she investigates, she uncovers painful secrets and unsaid truths shared by the town’s white and black residents and a dark family secret rooted in the occult that may hold the answer to both murders. Plagued by familial demons, she must confront generational trauma and supernatural forces to reveal the truth and escape the fate she’s doomed to inherit. “Sharp Objects” meets “Hereditary” in this southern gothic audio drama.
