Easttown mare creator and showrunner Brad Ingelsby takes root at HBO.
Ingelsby signed a three-year global agreement with the release of premium cable following the resounding success of Easttown mare. He will develop new projects for HBO as part of the deal.
The Kate Winslet-led limited series ended on May 31 with an audience of 3 million viewers on the first night across all platforms, and it grew its audience every week after its premiere. HBO also said the finale was the most-watched episode of an original series on the HBO Max streaming platform in its first 24 hours.
The success of the series – along with Winslet’s comments that she would like to see her character again – has led to speculation about another season, but Ingelsby said Hollywood journalist nothing is in sight: “If there was a world in which we were convinced that this is a continuation of the story that honors the first chapter and does things that an audience will appreciate, then perhaps. But at the moment, I have no idea what that could be.
Easttown mare is Ingelsby’s first series. His feature film credits include The way back, 2018 American woman and Run all night. The Pennsylvania native is a graduate of Villanova University and AFI’s screenwriting program. He is replaced by LBI Entertainment, CAA and McKuin Frankel.
