HBO has released the first teaser for their forthcoming limited series adaptation of Scenes from a Marriage, based on Ingmar Bergman’s classic Swedish series. The series has been scheduled to make its debut sometime this September.
The Scenes from a Marriage teaser, which you can check out below, highlights the highs and lows of the relationship between Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain’s characters. This includes intimate moments, heated arguments, longing looks, and more.
Starring Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac and Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain, HBO’s Scenes from a Marriage is an English-language adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s classic Swedish series and is expected to re-examine the original show’s depiction of love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage, and divorce through the lens of a contemporary American couple.
The limited series is written and directed by The Affair co-creator Hagai Levi. Executive producers are Levi, Isaac, Chastain, Amy Herzog, Lars Blomgren, Daniel Bergman, Blair Breard, and Media Res’ Michael Ellenberg. It is a co-production between Media Res and Endeavor Content.
Based on Bergman’s own experiences, the original six-episode series aired in 1973 on Swedish television. It starred Liv Ullmann and Erland Josephson where it told the story of a disintegration of a marriage between Marianne and Johan.
