HBO’s new flagship show, Westworld, is set to premiere in the MENA region simultaneously with the US premier, exclusively on OSN.
HBO’s latest big-budget series, Westworld, will be available exclusively to OSN’s subscribers at the same minute as the US, on Monday 3 October, 2016 at 4am, KSA, on OSN Play and OSN On Demand. Subscribers can also watch the series kick-off on OSN First HD-Home of HBO, at 10pm, KSA, on the same day.
This latest big production from HBO takes viewers on a journey in the futuristic Wild West theme park, founded by brilliant and complicated Dr Robert Ford, played by veteran actor Anthony Hopkins (Academy Award winner for The Silence of the Lambs).
Hopkins is joined on screen by a stellar cast of actors including Ed Harris (Golden Globe winner and Emmy nominee for HBO’s Game Change), as The Man in Black - the distillation of pure villainy into one man; Evan Rachel Wood (Golden Globe nominee for Thirteen) as Dolores Abernathy, a provincial rancher’s daughter, who begins to discover that her entire idyllic existence is an elaborately constructed lie; James Marsden (the X-Men films) stars as Teddy Flood, the charming newcomer, and Thandie Newton (Mission: Impossible II) plays the beautiful and razor-sharp Maeve Millay.
Created for television by Jonathan Nolan (Interstellar, The Dark Knight) and Lisa Joy (Pushing Daisies, Burn Notice), Westworld is a hugely anticipated show with the hallmark production values, strong plot and storylines that are synonymous with HBO, and was inspired by the 1973 motion picture Westworld, written and directed by Michael Crichton.
The series centres on the dawn of artificial intelligence and the evolution of sin, exploring a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.
Co-creator Nolan said: “Building on the incredibly evocative concept of the original film, we wanted to pose the question: If you could be completely immersed in a fantasy, one in which you could do whatever you wanted, would you discover things about yourself that you didn’t want to know?”
