The Amazon Prime series Them is a bold, stylistic hybrid
of supernatural horror and drama inspired by historical truths. The first season, set in 1953, follows a Black family that moves from North Carolina to Los Angeles — a relocation triggered by a racially motivated attack
against the family’s matriarch, Livia “Lucky” Emory
(Deborah Ayorinde).
