HBO Max to Bow Its First Global Day-and-Date Original Series Nov. 14

WarnerMedia Oct. 15 announced it would debut Danish series “Kamikaze” on HBO Max Nov. 14 — the first European original series to have a simultaneous release across 46 countries and territories Max is available. Two episodes in the eight-part series will subsequently debut each week until Dec. 5 in the United States.

The story follows 18-year-old Julie (Marie Reuther) on a journey of rediscovery, after losing her parents and brother in a plane crash. Suddenly, she finds herself alone in a large mansion with expensive cars in the garage, and, in theory, everything that most people only dream of: youth, beauty and money — lots of money. But material possessions hold no value to Julie anymore and she is forced to search for a reason to go on. She embarks on a wild and turbulent trip that takes her from her native Denmark to the far corners of the world. The series is based on the novel Muleum by Erlend Loe.
