“In collaboration with Steven, Kristie, Marc, and Bold Films, we’re delighted to work with J.T. and Bartlett to adapt their inspiring Tony Award-winning story for the screen,” said Tara Grace, senior vice president of HBO programming and films, in a statement. “Recounting the remarkable feat of two diametrically opposed sides coming together to find common ground, ‘Oslo’s’ themes are especially pertinent, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have so many revered artisans on both sides of the camera working together to bring this to life.”
“My memory of seeing ‘Oslo’ on the stage for the first time is still so vivid,” added executive producer Kristie Macosko Krieger. “I felt then what I feel now – this is a powerful and necessary story for our times. I’m excited to be working with Steven, Marc, HBO and Bold Films, along with our incredible cast and creatives, to bring this story to an expanded global audience.”
“Oslo” premieres Saturday, May 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
