HBO Europe has announced that it has greenlit and started shooting The Informant, an 8x40-minute political series set in Budapest in the 1980s. Written by Bálint Szentgyörgyi, who also directs alongside Áron Mátyássy (Weekend) and Bence Miklauzic (Car Park [+lee también:

), who arrives in Budapest to begin his studies at the University of Economics, brimming with excitement and anticipation. On his first day at the dorm, he joins a group of young democratic opposition activists who organise protests against the communist system. The group is led by Zsolt Száva (Márton Patkós, from Sunset [+lee también:

), a charismatic young student who soon becomes Geri’s best friend. The life of the country boy is changed overnight as he throws himself into a world of beautiful girls, wild parties and heated political debates.

However, Geri harbours a grave secret. He is an informant for the State Security Department and he doesn’t have a choice: if he wants to keep his seriously ill younger brother alive, he needs the medication provided by the state. While Száva is trying to identify the mole in the group, Geri wrestles with a daily challenge: how can he deceive the State Security Department and retain his new friends? Time is running out, and before the final showdown, he must decide which side to choose.

The show also stars Júlia Szász (Neither with You [+lee también:

). It is being produced by HBO Europe's Anna Závorszky and Proton Cinema's Viktória Petrányi, best known for her work with Kornél Mundruczó. The executive producers for HBO Europe are Camilla Curtis, Johnathan Young and Antony Root.

“As soon as we read Bálint Szentgyörgyi’s pilot script, we were hooked on The Informant,” says Young. “The opportunity to revisit a well-known period in Hungary’s history with fresh eyes and vivid, young characters was too good to miss. We hope our show will surprise the audience as well as entertain. This is not the grim eighties, as is sometimes portrayed. Our characters are determined to make the most of their lives, and are embracing every opportunity with warmth and looking forward to the future with optimism.”
