Hackerville, a fast, fresh and highly entertaining new series from HBO Europe®, is now available to stream on HBO NOW®, HBO GO®, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms. The series is the latest programming made available to U.S. subscribers from HBO’s international partners, and joins Folklore and Grisse from HBO Asia, Blinded by the Lights from Poland, and Success from the Adria Region, which are available to stream now.
Set on the front-line of one of the biggest modern-day threats, the series follows German cyber-crimes investigator, Lisa Metz (Anna Schumacher), who is sent back to her hometown of Timisoara, Romania to investigate a major hack against a German bank. She teams up with Romanian cop, Adam Sandor (Andi Vasluianu), to protect a 14-year-old gamer Cipi (Voicu Dumitras) from the looming threat posed by the case. Lisa also finds herself forced to grapple with her own family’s dark history, as she dives deeper and deeper into a high-stakes hunt for the truth.
Created by UFA Fiction’s Ralph Martin and Joerg Winger (Deutschland 83 and Deutschland 86) and produced by Cristian Mungiu’s Mobra Films, Hackerville is inspired by a remote Romanian town, also known as “Hackerville,” which has a high-concentration of cyber-criminals. The series is the first-ever co-production by HBO Europe and German Pay-TV channel TNT Series.
