A new horror series is getting ready to make its way to the Far East via HBO Asia, and we have your first details right here faster than you can say “Grace.” Well… honestly, you did say that pretty quickly, but we were a bit faster. Doesn’t matter though as everyone wins.
According to Variety, HBO Asia is to kick off its second original production with “Grace,” a contemporary horror mini-series. Production begins next week in association with Singapore-based producer Infocus Asia and with the financial support of Singapore’s Media Development Authority.
The four-part hour-long horror mini-series in English and Mandarin is about a father’s mistake which condemns his family to unspeakable horror. Set in present day urban Asia, “Grace” examines the Asian concepts of family, sacrifice, and vengeance.
It will be directed by Tony Tilse, who co-directed the 10-part 1960s detective series “Serangoon Road,” which last year was HBO Asia’s first venture into long-format fiction production. “Serangoon Road” aired across HBO’s pan-Asia footprint from September last year.
“Grace” will star “Serangoon Road” talent Russell Wong as a loving father but unfaithful husband and Pamelyn Chee as his mistress. Constance Song, Jean Toh, and Vivienne Tseng also star, as does Taiwan’s rising star Teresa Daley (Transformers: Age of Extinction).
