August, 1896. Victorian London is rocked to its foundations by a supernatural event which gives certain people – mostly women – abnormal abilities, from the wondrous to the disturbing. But no matter their particular “turns,” all who belong to this new underclass are in grave danger. It falls to mysterious, quick-fisted widow Amalia True (Laura Donnelly) and brilliant young inventor Penance Adair (Ann Skelly) to protect and shelter these gifted “orphans.” To do so, they will have to face the brutal forces determined to annihilate their kind.

Rounding out this genre-bending drama’s acclaimed cast are:

  • Olivia Williams (“The Ghost Writer”) as Lavinia Bidlow, the wealthy benefactress funding the orphanage for Amalia’s outcasts, who are also known as the Touched.
  • James Norton (“Little Women”) as Hugo Swann, the rich and irreverent proprietor of a den of iniquity.
  • Tom Riley (“Da Vinci’s Demons”) as Augustus “Augie” Bidlow, Lavinia’s sweet, awkward, younger brother with a secret of his own.
  • Pip Torrens (“The Crown”) as Lord Gilbert Massen, a high-ranking government official leading the crusade against our heroines.
  • Ben Chaplin (“The Thin Red Line”) as Inspector Frank Mundi, who’s torn between his police duties and moral compass.
  • Emmy®-nominee Denis O’Hare (“American Horror Story”) as Edmund Hague, a deranged doctor searching for the source of the powers.
  • Amy Manson (“Once Upon a Time”) as the tortured, murderous Maladie, who derives power from pain.
  • Rochelle Neil (“Terminator: Dark Fate”) as the fire-wielding Annie “Bonfire” Carby, one of Maladie’s motley gang.
  • Zackary Momoh (“Seven Seconds”) as orphanage doctor Horatio Cousens, whose turn equips him with healing powers.
  • Eleanor Tomlinson (“The Illusionist”) as Mary Brighton, a broken and resilient performer pursuing her dream of singing on stage.
  • Elizabeth Berrington (“In Bruges”) as Lucy Best, adaptive and streetwise, her quick-wit and high spirits mask the pain of a tragic past.
  • Anna Devlin (“All the Money in the World”) as Primrose Chattoway who, at ten feet tall and a dreamy demeanor, wishes to be an ordinary girl not taking up too much space.
  • Kiran Sonia Sawar (“HBO Max’s Pure”) as Harriet Kaur, a young Scottish Sikh and aspiring lawyer, determined to live her life as she planned.
  • Viola Prettejohn (“The Witcher”) as Myrtle Haplisch, a middle-class girl rescued from a family who cannot understand her – literally, as she can no longer speak any form of language they understand.
  • Ella Smith (“Ray & Liz”) as Désireé Blodgett, a prostitute with a power that gets her in trouble and a six-year old son who never speaks.
  • Vinnie Heaven as Nimble Jack, a rakish and charming young thief and an expert at breaking and entering.

PHILIPPINES, MARCH 5, 2021 – WarnerMedia today announced Forbidden, a new Thai-language mystery series. Filming of the eight-part, hour-long series has begun in Thailand. The series is the third HBO Asia Original currently in production.

Set in Thailand, Forbidden stars popular actor and singer Krissanapoom Pibulsonggram – commonly known as “JJ” – (In Family We Trust (2018)) and directed by filmmaker, Anucha Boonyawatana, and Korean-American Josh Kim. The series follows four friends who travel from Bangkok to a remote village in the mountains for a funeral of one of the group’s estranged father.

When the young friends unleash a curse long held at bay by the villagers, they discover cover-up upon cover-up, and soon everyone is a suspect in the mystery. But the woods conceal something worse than just superstition, and soon the whole group is being hunted.

Forbidden is slated to premiere on WarnerMedia’s regional streaming service HBO GO and HBO later in 2021. It joins two other HBO Asia Originals now underway – horror series Folklore Season 2 and action-fantasy series Halfworlds Season 3 – which were both renewed in late 2020. Halfworlds is currently filming in the Philippines, with episodes of anthology series Folklore at various stages of production across seven different Asian countries. Folklore Season 2 is helmed by Singapore’s award-winning filmmaker Eric Khoo, and the Singapore episode will be directed by Nicole Midori Woodford.

But as far as 14-year-old Mouse and his best friends Lamont and Sweartagawd are concerned, the only crew worth utmost respect is The Midnight Clique, an infamous group of riders who embody all the power and glory that dirt biking represents. In the wake of his older brother and Midnight’s top rider Stro’s tragic death, Mouse is determined to leave boyhood behind and join MNC –so when its leader, the legendary Blax, takes him under his wing, Mouse quickly abandons his work at the local animal hospital and dedicates his days to fixing up bikes alongside his idol. In the background, however, his devoted mom Teri and mentor Detective Rivers grow increasingly concerned that Mouse is headed down the same seductive, violent path as Stro, whose allegiance to Midnight ultimately cost him his life. As Blax attemptsto be a positive influence on the bright and charismatic teen, Mouse’s conviction to be a man and help provide for his struggling family finds him at an impossible crossroads between the straight-and-narrow and a lifestyle that doesn’t afford second chances
