HBO has issued a season renewal to drama “Hanna,” which debuted globally March 29 in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. Based on Joe Wright’s 2011 film of the same name, “Hanna’s” eight-episode first season was written by David Farr (“The Night Manager”), who co-wrote the original feature. It was produced by NBCUniversal International Studios, Working Title Television and Amazon Studios.
The logline: In season one, 15-year-old Hanna (Esmé Creed-Miles), who was raised in total seclusion in the remote woods of Eastern Europe, has spent her entire young life training to fight those who hunt her and her mercenary father, Erik Heller (Joel Kinnaman). Her survivalist skills are finally tested when she and Erik are separated upon their discovery by a rogue CIA operative, Marissa Wiegler (Mireille Enos) and her team of agents. Hanna has no choice but to embark on a perilous journey alone across Europe as she seeks to reunite with her father and evade – and ultimately take down – the dangerous agents who target them. Hanna’s isolated upbringing leads her to face particularly daunting physical and emotional challenges along the way, as she navigates an ever-deepening conspiracy – one that could be the undoing of both her and her father.
Season two will be written by David Farr, who also serves as Executive Producer. Tom Coan will serve as executive producer for NBCUniversal International Studios. Executive Producers for Working Title Television are Andrew Woodhead, Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan. Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements will also serve as Executive Producers alongside Scott Nemes. Laura Hastings-Smith is Series Producer (“The Little Drummer Girl”, “Hunger”).
