At Home, which is scheduled to be made available in Spain in the next few weeks and other HBO Europe territories at a later date, has been created exclusively for HBO Europe by Warner Bros Itvp España in collaboration with local prodco Caballo Films.
The series will span a number of genres, with each episode expected to be approximately 15 minutes long.
