HBO Max’s It’s a Sin Trailer & Key Art Released for Max Original Limited Series
HBO Max has released the official It’s a Sin trailer and key art for the streamer’s upcoming Max Original limited series premiering on Thursday, February 18 on HBO Max with all five episodes. You can check out the trailer now in the player below along with the full key art!
Set in 1981, Ritchie (Olly Alexander), Roscoe (Omari Douglas), and Colin (Callum Scott Howells) are young lads, strangers at first, leaving home at 18 and heading off to London with hope and ambition and joy… and walking straight into a virus that most of the world ignores. Year by year, episode by episode, crossing the whole decade, their lives change as the mystery of that illness starts as a rumor, then a threat, then a terror, and then something that binds them together in the fight.
It’s the story of their friends, lovers, and families too, especially Jill (Lydia West), the girl who loves them and helps them, and galvanizes them in the battles to come. Together they will endure the horror of the epidemic, the pain of rejection and the prejudices that gay men faced throughout the decade.
There are terrible losses and wonderful friendships. And complex families, pushed to the limit and beyond. This is a series that remembers the boys we lost, and celebrates those lives that burned so brightly.
From RED Production Company and co-commissioner Channel 4, and distributed by All3Media International, the series is written and executive produced by Primetime Emmy nominated writer Russell T Davies (Queer as Folk, A Very English Scandal, Years and Years) with Nicola Shindler (Happy Valley, The Stranger) also executive producing.
