STATION ELEVEN HBO MAX
POSTAPOCALYPTIC TV SERIES
As I usually say - I like to watch apocalyptic shows as you can never be too prepared, and two new cataclysmic series were announced this week. HBO Max has set Mackenzie Davis and Himesh Patel as leads of their ten episode show STATION ELEVEN a post-apocalyptic saga spanning multiple timelines. It tells the stories of survivors of a devastating flu as they attempt to
rebuild and reimagine the world anew while holding on to the best of what’s been lost. David Wilmot, Matilda Lawler, Nabhaan Rizwan, Philippine Velge, Daniel Zovatto, Luca Villacis, Dylan Taylor and Lori Petty will also star in the show based on the international bestseller by Emily St. John Mandel.

THE SWARM GLOBAL SERIES
SETS INTERNATIONAL CAST
Meanwhile, Europe is preparing big-budget series based on the Frank Schätzing best-seller THE SWARM, and has gathered a global cast of stars for the eight part environmental thriller. Cécile de France, Sharon Duncan Brewster, our dearest boo Jack Greenlees (whom we fell in love
with in Harlots), Lydia Wilson, Krista Kosonen, Alexander Karim, Leonie Benesch and Barbara Sukowa will star next to Takuya Kimura, Takehiro Hiera, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, Dutch Johnson and Joshua Odjick! The series, being done for German ZDF, chronicles the struggle of
humankind against an unknown swarm intelligence that lives in the depths of the sea. When humanity’s pollution and wanton exploitation of the seas disturb this mysterious collective, it strikes back, threatening all human life on earth. The fate of the world rests in the hands of a small group of scientists.
