WHILE awaiting the highly anticipated HBO Asia original Halfworlds to air, we’ve been given really short clips, production stills, and most recently, promotional images, and we must say it’s all looking pretty damn awesome so far.
The eight-part original series is a thriller that’s set in present day Jakarta. Directed by Joko Anwar, Halfworlds tells the story of an underground society of demons living among the people in Jakarta.
You can read more about the miniseries from our previous coverage — we’ve talked about Bront Palarae and Reza Rahadian‘s experience working together, wrote an introduction to Salvita Decorte, and also published a few words on HBO Asia’s hopes for Halfworlds.
The upcoming series features Indonesian actors Salvita Decorte, Reza Rahadian, Arifin Putra, Aimee Saras, Adinia Wirasti, Hannah Al-Rashid, Tara Basro, Alex Abbad, Ario Bayu and Verdi Solaiman; Singaporean Nathan Hartono and Malaysia’s own Bront Palarae and Puteri Balqis.
