Today it has been announced that HBO Europe’s new 8 part drama series PATRIA has been selected in competition at Series Mania, Lille, which takes place between 20-28 March. It will air simultaneously in HBO Europe’s 21 territories in May 2020. To coincide with this announcement a host of new first look images are being released.

Patria tells a story – over three decades – of the Spanish Basque Country threatened by the separatist terrorism of ETA, through the eyes of two families divided by the violent conflict. The lives of Bittori and her family implode the day ETA kills her husband, Txato, on his doorstep. The relationship with her close friend Miren, whose son belongs to an ETA command, also comes to an end. Both families must deal with grief and moral contradictions while life goes on. Will they be able to someday forgive, put aside their differences, and move forward?

The series has been created and written by Aitor Gabilondo, based on the bestselling novel by Fernando Aramburu. Executive Producers for HBO Europe are Miguel Salvat, Steve Matthews and Antony Root. Patria was produced by Alea Media for HBO Europe, with participation from HBO Latin America.
