New HBO 2019 Teaser Reveals Footage Of Regina King In 'Watchmen' And Zendaya In 'Euphoria'

In a new teaser, HBO continues to give hints at two of its most highly anticipated series.

One is the adaptation of Watchmen, which boasts an ensemble cast led by Regina King, as well as the teen drama Euphoria, another ensemble series that is fronted by Zendaya.

We only get a few seconds of footage for each of the shows, but it’s more than we’ve seen before this.

Executive produced by Drake, Euphoria is an adaptation of the Israeli TV series of the same name which is “Kids meets Trainspotting.” Eleven other cast members include Storm Reid, Algee Smith, Nika King, Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Hunter Schafer and Sydney Sweeney. HBO first announced the project in March, described as a teen drama and a story of “drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship.” The story is told by a lying, drug-addicted 17-year-old named Rue (Zendaya).

The official logline of HBO’s Watchmen, which is from Damon Lindelof: “Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.” Aside from Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Lily Rose Smith and Adelynn Spoon will also star.

There’s also a few new seconds of the film Native Son, which got a teaser the other day.
