The Sleepers

HBO Europe

HBO Europe presents The Sleepers, an espionage drama that takes place at the end of 1989 in Czechoslovakia when the Soviet Empire was crumbling. In the midst of the Velvet Revolution, which brought 40 years of Moscow’s dominance in the country to an end, an ordinary woman gets caught between the two worlds of State Security and the dissidents. She is gradually forced to uncover unexpected secrets kept by both.

At the project’s helm is internationally acclaimed director Ivan Zacharias who previously was lead director on HBO Europe mini-series Wasteland. Cast members include Tatiana Pauhofova (Burning Bush), Martin Mysicka, Hattie Morahan (Beauty and the Beast, Alice Through the Looking Glass), David Nykl (Arrow, Stargate:Atlantis), Martin Hofmann and Lenka Vlasakova. The Sleepers is the debut project from screenwriter Ondrej Gabriel. Produced by Etamp Film Production for HBO Europe.
