I can see putting a Lovecraftian series into colonial times, although imho the 1920's seems better suited to the atmosphere of the stories (the atmosphere of the "colonial times," it seems to me, is "polluted," as it were, by all the witch stories...)colonial times
I think that would be possible, though I don't think I would do it 'troupe' style where you have the actors appear again and again playing different parts. You could weave stories together, season to season. Some characters could have bit parts in some before appearing in their own.Make along the same lines of American Horror Story ? If they structured the series like that, they could cover the whole mythos.

Another take at the Hogwarts idea? A very, very different take...How about a series on how students get by at Miskatonic University? I always wondered what the Student Union there would be like
I'd set it in the present day because I think people can identify with present day college students more easily and you also have more story possibilities. Maybe wrap in some SF stuff as Lovecraft seemed to like turning his themes to SF as well.
Yes, now that would be an incredible tv miniseries series . Why not have Guillermo Del toro write and produce the miniseries.I always thought At The Mountains of Madness had series potential. The ancient city could be revealed as the Antarctic ice sheets shrink and the exploration of the city could at least span a miniseries if it was handled properly. As with all my TV series suggestions, I would put it on Netflix or HBO. Get some of the people who worked on Fringe to work on that series.
That'd be a great opening visual for the series!Somehow I imagine the only way a TV show could truly be Lovecraftian would mean tentacular slaughter of the nation-wide audience, each grabbed and pulled into the TV screen, never to be seen again while enduring aeons of darkness only leavened by the terror that they are not alone, that malevolent beings lurk in close proximity ready to absorb their consciousnesses in eldritch communion.
Or something like that.
