HBO Max (soon to be known as Max), has a new international series coming soon featuring one P-Valley alum.
The streamer just unveiled the trailer for Spy/Master, “a spy series set during the height of the Cold War.” The show will star Happy Valley actor Alec Secăreanu and former P-Valley star Parker Sawyers.
According to the official logline:
SPY/MASTER is set during the height of the Cold War and covers a week in the life of fictional character Victor Godeanu, played by Secăreanu, the right-hand man and closest advisor to Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu. However, Godeanu is also a secret agent for the KGB and must escape Romania and Ceaușescu before his cover is blown. With only one shot at staying alive, he uses a diplomatic trip to Germany as a springboard to the United States. Helped by an undercover Stasi agent and former flame played by Svenja Jung, and an up-and-coming CIA agent played by Parker Sawyers, Godeanu must elude the KGB and his own country’s spooks, fully aware that his defection is putting his family back home in mortal danger.
'Spy/Master' will debut on HBO Max on Friday, May 19 with the first two episodes.
Created by Adina Sădeanu and Kirsten Peters, the six-part drama series will air one new episode weekly until to the season finale on June 16.
The series is directed by Christopher Smith (Temple, Alex Rider) with Antony Root and Johnathan Young serving as executive producers for HBO Max. Anke Greifeneder is the executive producer for Warner TV Series. Spy/Master is produced by Viktória Petrányi and Judit Sós for Proton Cinema and Tudor Reu for Mobra Films for HBO Max.
