The series is from Carlton Cuse of Lost fame, and Kerry Ehrin of Friday Night Lights. While the show will take place primarily at the iconic Motel, Cuse reveals that the mythology will expand past that infamous shower.

"The town itself is very much a character in the show. There are a lot of secrets that lurk beneath this bucolic veneer."
