HBO is synonymous with prestige in television fiction and in recent years he has dedicated an important part of his efforts to shine in the limited series section (formerly known as miniseries).

It seems that HBO will continue down this path since, for example, On October 25, the limited series ‘The Undoing’ will premiere with Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant, Édgar Ramírez and Donald Sutherland leading its brilliant cast. And looking to the future, HBO has other limited series projects in the pipeline, such as a television adaptation of the hit film ‘Parasite’ (2019) or a version for the small screen of Ingmar Bergman’s classic ‘Scenes From a Marriage’ (1974) , with Óscar Isaac and Michelle Williams as protagonists.
