Ondrej Gabriel wrote the drama and Ivan Zacharias, a veteran of HBO Europe’s 2016 missing-person drama Wasteland, will direct all episodes, according to a Variety report.

“Set at a pivotal moment in Central European history, Ondrej’s script also has startling relevance in today’s global political climate, while Ivan brings the story, period and characters to life with his inimitable authenticity and style,” said Antony Root, executive vice president of original programming and production for HBO Europe, in comments to the media outlet.

In June last year, HBO Europe announced Romanian drama Hackerville as its first international co-production. In the months that followed, the company started filming Beforeigners in Norway and also revealed that the eight-part Patria would be its first Spanish original drama.
