Teaser: Ruth Wilson, Andrew Scott In “Oslo”

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

HBO has premiered the first trailer for “Oslo,” its new political thriller based on the Tony Award-winning play of the same name which stars “His Dark Materials” alums Ruth Wilson (“Luther,” “The Affair”) and Andrew Scott (“Fleabag,” “Sherlock”).

The true story tale deals with the negotiations between implacable enemies – the secret back-channels talks, unlikely friendships, and quiet heroics of a small but committed group of Israelis, Palestinians, and one Norwegian couple that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords.

In 1993 Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Negotiator Mahmoud Abbas signed the accords at the White House. DreamWorks Pictures, Marc Platt Productions and Bold Films produce the series written and executive produced by J.T. Rogers and directed by Bartlett Sher.
