HBO Europe's Dramedy Series GÖSTA To Premiere In The U.S. August 31

The Series Is HBO Europe's First Commissioned Drama Series Out Of Scandinavia And The First Foray Into Television From Lukas Moodysson

HBO Europe presents GÖSTA from Swedish writer/director Lukas Moodysson ("Show Me Love"). This heartwarming, heart-wrenching new series explores the humor and tragedy of trying to do good in a dysfunctional world. On the heels of his first job offer, Gösta, a 28-year-old child psychologist, moves from Stockholm to the small, rural Swedish town of Småland. While he sets out to be relentlessly kind and help everyone he meets, not all of Gösta's noble efforts have happy endings. At his idyllic cottage in the middle of the woods, Gösta hosts a Syrian refugee, Hussein, and simultaneously tries to keep his long-distance relationship alive with his girlfriend Melissa, but things in this small, serene household grow increasingly chaotic following the arrival of Gösta's fractious, unpredictable father Tomas. Over the course of twelve half-hour episodes, Gösta, struggles to keep everything in order as his life becomes unhinged.

All episodes will be available in the U.S. beginning MONDAY, AUGUST 31. The series will be available on HBO and to stream on HBO Max.
