FREE PREVIEW

Epic five-part HBO miniseries dramatizing the events surrounding the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident, as told through the stories of the brave men and women who made incredible sacrifices to save Europe from unimaginable disaster. On April 26, 1986, the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Soviet Union suffered a massive explosion that released radioactive material across Belarus, Russia and Ukraine, and as far as Scandinavia and western Europe. Chernobyl is a gripping five-part miniseries that tells the powerful and visceral story of the worst man-made accident in history, following the tragedy from the moment of the early-morning explosion through the chaos and loss of life in the ensuing days, weeks and months. Approaching the story from every angle, encompassing the perspectives of plant workers, firemen, doctors, scientists, residents and Soviet bureaucrats, the miniseries juxtaposes compelling human stories of bravery and sacrifice with the shocking inertia of a government intent on passing blame and downplaying the dangers of the disaster. Featuring an ensemble cast led by Jared Harris (Emmy? nominee for Mad Men), Stellan Skarsgård (Melancholia) and Emily Watson (Oscar? nominee for Hilary and Jackie and Breaking the Waves), Chernobyl is written by Craig Mazin (The Huntsman: Winter’s War) and directed by Johan Renck (Breaking Bad).
