HBO has ordered a limited series based on Ingmar Bergman’s Scenes From a Marriage, with Oscar Issac and Michelle Williams set to star.
The project comes from Hagai Levi (Our Boys, The Affair), who will adapt Bergman’s classic miniseries and direct. Media Res and Endeavor Content are producing.
The limited series will reexamine the original miniseries’ iconic depiction of love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage and divorce through the lens of a contemporary American couple played by Isaac (Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, HBO’s Show Me a Hero) and Williams (Fosse/Verdon, The Greatest Showman).
Scenes From a Marriage continues Levi’s relationship with HBO, which includes the Israeli drama Our Boys and the critically acclaimed In Treatment. He executive produces with Michael Ellenberg of Media Res,
Lars Blomgren, Williams, Isaac, Daniel Bergman, Blair Breard and Amy Herzog.
Bergman’s Scenes From a Marriage, starring Liv Ullmann and Erland Josephson, originally aired on Swedish television in 1973. The six-part series was condensed for a theatrical release, which debuted in 1974 in the U.S. PBS aired the full miniseries later in the decade.
