    A post-apocalyptic saga spanning multiple timelines, this limited drama series tells the stories of 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. “Station Eleven” is based on the international bestseller of the same name by Emily St. John Mandel.

    The series stars Mackenzie Davis, Himesh Patel, Daniel Zovatto, David Wilmot, Matilda Lawler, Philippine Velge, Nabhaan Rizwan and Lori Petty, with Gael Garcìa Bernal and Danielle Deadwyler recurring.

    'Station Eleven' begins streaming on HBO Max on December 16.

    The Leftovers' Patrick Somerville and "This is America"/Atlanta's Hiro Murai are both involved also.

    Annoying "Poignant slow cover version trailer" convention aside, I'm quite excited about this. The book is beautiful imho, and while I can definitely imagine people being a bit gunshy of anything pandemic related, it's got such a unique tone and theme that I hope the show doesn't suffer for that. I can see there have been significant plot changes from the source, but at least some of its poetic dialogue seems to have made it intact.

    I've mixed feelings about how the trailer is put together, but given the pedigree in front of the camera and behind, I think it has the potential to be something very special indeed.
