HBO and BBC present His Dark Materials, a new original series based on the global bestseller, premiering this fall.
His Dark Materials stars Dafne Keen and James McAvoy and Ruth Wilson and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Adapting Philip Pullman’s award-winning trilogy of these same name, which is considered a modern masterpiece of imaginative fiction, the first season follows Lyra, a seemingly ordinary but brave young woman from another world. Her search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children and becomes a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust. As she journeys into the worlds, including our personal, Lyra meets Will, a determined and courageous boy. Together, they encounter extraordinary beings and dangerous secrets, with the fate of both the living — and the dead — in their hands.
