Ridley Scott-produced anthology series, “The Terror: Infamy,” premiering Monday, August 12 at 9:00 p.m. ET/8:00 p.m. CT on AMC.
Featuring a cast and crew with deep-rooted connections to WWII, the internment of Japanese Americans and the aftermath in Hiroshima, “The Terror: Infamy” centers on a series of bizarre deaths that haunt a Japanese American community, and a young man’s journey to understand and combat the malevolent entity responsible. In addition, the series is one of the first depicting the internment of Japanese Americans on such a massive scale – complete with authentically recreated camps in scope and scale as post-WWII. “The Terror: Infamy” is co-created and executive produced by Alexander Woo (“True Blood”) and Max Borenstein (“Kong: Skull Island,” “Godzilla”). Woo also serves as showrunner.
