'The Informant': HBO Max Unveils First Trailer From Hungarian Spy Drama

EXCLUSIVE: HBO Max is launching eight-part part drama The Informant on its service from April 1, Deadline has learned, and here’s an exclusive first trailer.

The series, which is written and co-directed by Bálint Szentgyörgyi, is an HBO Max EMEA original and premiered at the Geneva International Film Festival.

The Informant is set in 1985, behind the Iron Curtain, as Geri (Gergely Váradi) leaves for college. He is looking forward to meeting girls and partying and joins a group of radicals, led by the charismatic Száva (Márton Patkós). But Geri has a secret. He’s an informant of the totalitarian state and to save his brother, he’s been forced to spy on his new friends for State Security. While Geri’s life changes forever – juggling parties and political debates – he wrestles with a daily challenge; whose side should he be on? Especially when the group’s increasingly radical leader, Száva realizes that there is an informant among them.

Producers are Anna Závorszky for HBO Max and Viktória Petrányi (White God) for Proton Cinema, which is also providing production services. Exec producers for HBO Max are Camilla Curtis and Johnathan Young.

The Informant will premiere with a double episode on April 1 for all HBO Max platforms across 61 territories including the U.S., Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe and then an episode will air weekly.

Check out the trailer above.
