[TV] HBO Asia Gets Into Horror Biz With “Grace”

Teresa Daley

Variety says HBO Asia is to kick off its second original production with “Grace,” a contemporary horror mini-series.

The four-part hour-long horror mini-series in English and Mandarin is about a father’s mistake which condemns his family to unspeakable horror. Set in present day urban Asia, “Grace” examines the Asian concepts of family, sacrifice and vengeance.

“Grace” will be directed by Tony Tilse, who co-directed 10-part 1960s detective series “Serangoon Road.” It will star “Serangoon Road” talent Russell Wong as a loving father but unfaithful husband, and Pamelyn Chee (pictured, left) as his mistress. Constance Song, Jean Toh and Vivienne Tseng also star, as does Taiwan’s rising star Teresa Daley, pictured.

Production begins next week.
