HBO Max Debuts Official Trailer & Key Art For Max Original Limited Series IT’S A SIN





HBO Max Debuts Official Trailer & Key Art For Max Original Limited Series IT’S A SIN, Premiering February 18

HBO Max debuted the official trailer and key art today for the new Max Original, IT’S A SIN. All five episodes of the limited series debut THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18 on HBO Max.

Set in 1981, Ritchie (Olly Alexander), Roscoe (Omari Douglas) and Colin (Callum Scott Howells) are young lads, strangers at first, leaving home at 18 and heading off to London with hope and ambition and joy… and walking straight into a virus that most of the world ignores. Year by year, episode by episode, crossing the whole decade, their lives change as the mystery of that illness starts as a rumor, then a threat, then a terror, and then something that binds them together in the fight.

It’s the story of their friends, lovers and families too, especially Jill (Lydia West), the girl who loves them and helps them, and galvanizes them in the battles to come. Together they will endure the horror of the epidemic, the pain of rejection and the prejudices that gay men faced throughout the decade.

There are terrible losses and wonderful friendships. And complex families, pushed to the limit and beyond. This is a series that remembers the boys we lost, and celebrates those lives that burned so brightly.

From RED Production Company and co-commissoner Channel 4, and distributed by All3Media International, the series is written and executive produced by Primetime Emmy nominated writer Russell T Davies (“Queer as Folk”, “A Very English Scandal” “Years and Years”) with Nicola Shindler (“Happy Valley,” “The Stranger”) also executive producing.

HBO Max Orders JULIA to Series From Lionsgate Television and 3 Arts Entertainment





HBO Max Orders JULIA to Series From Lionsgate Television and 3 Arts Entertainment

Max Original Is Inspired By The Life Of Julia Child

HBO Max has given an eight-episode first season order to the Max Original, JULIA, based on the life of world-renowned chef Julia Child. The series from Lionsgate Television and 3 Arts Entertainment starring Sarah Lancashire (“Happy Valley”) and David Hyde Pierce (“Frasier”), directed by Charles McDougall (“House of Cards”) and written by Daniel Goldfarb (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”), is scheduled to continue production late spring in Boston, where the pilot was filmed.

JULIA is inspired by Julia Child’s extraordinary life and her long-running television series, “The French Chef,” which pioneered the now popular genre of cooking shows. Through Julia and her singular can-do spirit, the series explores an evolving time in American history – the emergence of public television as a new social institution, feminism and the women’s movement, the nature of celebrity and America’s cultural growth. At its heart, the series is a portrait of a loving marriage with an evolving and complicated power dynamic. In addition to Lancashire and Hyde Pierce, JULIA stars Brittany Bradford (Broadway’s “Bernhardt/Hamlet”), Fran Kranz (“Homecoming”), Fiona Glascott (“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”), Bebe Neuwirth (“Madam Secretary”), Isabella Rossellini (“Silent Retreat”) and Jefferson Mays (“I Am the Night”).

“We are so happy to help bring the incomparable Julia Child back to the small screen, when we need her more than ever. This show’s look into her life, marriage, and trailblazing career as she transformed the way we talk about food is an absolute delight,” said Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max. “Our incredible cast and formidable creative team are a recipe for success, and we couldn’t be more excited.”

“We’re delighted to expand our relationship with HBO Max by teaming with our production partners at 3 Arts on JULIA, the complex and compelling story of the celebrated chef, author and TV personality who almost single-handedly invented the world of food television,” said Jocelyn Sabo, Lionsgate Television Group Senior Vice President. “Combining an extraordinary creative team, powerhouse cast and timely subject matter, the series has all the ingredients to resonate with HBO Max audiences for years to come.”

JULIA is produced by Lionsgate and 3 Arts Entertainment. Chris Keyser (“The Society”) will serve as showrunner as well as executive produce along with 3 Arts Entertainment’s Erwin Stoff (“Edge of Tomorrow”). Charles McDougall, Daniel Goldfarb and 3 Arts’ Kimberly Carver will also executive produce. Todd Schulkin is a Consulting Producer on behalf of The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts.
