Hailing from acclaimed horror master Álex de la Iglesia (The Day of the Beast, Witching & Bitching, The Last Circus), the teaser for HBO's new religious-themed horror series "30 Coins" promises to take viewers into a world where nothing is as it seems, and nobody can be trusted. Watch it below.
The eight-episode drama series follows Father Vergara (Eduard Fernández), an exorcist, boxer, and ex-convict who is exiled by the church as the priest of a remote town in Spain. As his past and old enemies come back to haunt him, strange things begin to happen. An unlikely task force forms as Mayor Paco (Miguel Ángel Silvestre) and local vet Elena (Megan Montaner) seek the truth, while reality is distorted by a cursed coin which is at the heart of a global conspiracy.
"30 Coins" is directed by Álex de la Iglesia, who co-wrote with Jorge Guerricaechevarría. Executive producers for HBO Europe are Steve Matthews, Miguel Salvat, and Antony Root. Álex de la Iglesia and Carolina Bang are executive producers for Pokeepsie Films. The series was produced with participation from HBO Latin America.
The series will premiere on HBO/HBO Max in 2021.
