With a narrative that spans three decades, Patria tells a story of Spain’s Basque country, threatened by the terrorism of the leftist separatist group ETA, as seen through the eyes of two families divided by the violent conflict.

Patria will premiere on Sunday, May 17, 2020, in the US and 61 countries across Europe and Latin America. In Europe, the show will be available on HBO Europe’s branded services in 21 countries, including Spain. In Latin America, it will be broadcast on HBO in over 40 countries, and will be available on HBO Go. And in the US, it will be available on HBO Now, HBO Go, HBO On Demand, HBO Latino, and partners’ streaming platforms, including HBO on Prime Video.

New episodes of Patria will be available weekly.

On the day ETA announces a ceasefire, Bittori (Elena Irureta, The Time in Between) visits the cemetery where her husband Txato, who was murdered by the terrorists, is buried. She tells him she’s decided to return home to the village where they lived together to try and get closure.

Bittori’s presence in the village causes chaos — enraging Miren (Ane Gabarain, 800 Bullets), her neighbor, once a close friend, and the mother of Joxe Mari, an imprisoned terrorist and the probable killer of Txato. The rift between the two women and their deeply held convictions make trying to forget impossible. The question is, will they be able to forgive in a community shattered by political fanaticism?

Based on the bestselling novel Patria by Fernando Aramburu, the eight-episode series is created and written by Aitor Gabilondo (Unauthorized Living), and directed by Felix Viscarret (Four Seasons in Havana) and Óscar Pedraza (Captain Alatriste). Miguel Salvat, Steve Matthews, and Antony Root are the Executive Producers for HBO Europe. Patria was produced by Alea Media for HBO Europe, with participation from HBO Latin America.
