HBO Max has greenlighted the limited series drama “Station Eleven,” a 10-episode post-apocalyptic saga about 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.
Based on the international best-seller by Emily St. John Mandel, which was both a National Book Award and PEN/Faulkner Award finalist, “Station Eleven” stars Daniel Zovatto (“Penny Dreadful: City of Angels”) as the enigmatic leader of a mysterious cult of young people and Lori Petty (A League of Their Own, “Orange Is the New Black”) as the leader of a group of traveling Shakespeare performers.
Other cast members include Andy McQueen (“Books of Blood,” “The Coroner”) David Cross (“Mr. Show,” “Arrested Development”), Enrico Colantoni (“Veronica Mars,” “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”), and Julian Obradors (“7th & Union,” “Mayans M.C.”).
The series will be produced by Paramount Television Studios for HBO Max.
