Production begins next week in association with Singapore-based producer Infocus Asia and with the financial support of Singapore’s Media Development Authority.
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.
It will be directed by Tony Tilse, who co-directed 10-part 1960s detective series “Serangoon Road,” which last year was HBO Asia’s first venture into long-format fiction production. “Serangoon Road” aired across HBO’s pan-Asia footprint from September last year.
“Grace” will star “Serangoon Road” talent Russell Wong (pictured, right) 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 (Transformers: Age Of Extinction).
