HBO Asia's original period drama GRISSE premieres today, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6 on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms. The show is the latest programming made available to U.S. subscribers from HBO's international partners and joins the recent critically acclaimed HBO Asia series "Folklore" and "Miss Sherlock."

Consisting of eight hour-long episodes, the English-language series is set in the Dutch East Indies during the mid-1800s colonial period. The Singapore-based production follows a group of unique characters of diverse backgrounds and creeds, who unite to break the yoke of tyranny and write their own destiny when they lead a rebellion against a brutal governor and suddenly find themselves in control of the Dutch garrison town Grisse.

GRISSE features an ensemble cast of actors from Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Europe, Australia and the U.S., including: Adinia Wirasti (HBO Asia's "Halfworlds Season 1"), Marthino Lio ("Sayang You Can Dance"), Michael Wahr ("City Homicide"), Edward Akbar ("Air Terjun Pengantin"), Jamie Aditya ("Sync or Swim"), Toshiji Takeshima (HBO's "True Blood"), Joanne Kam ("Kopitiam"), Zack Lee ("The Raid 2"), Tom Dejong ("Medisch Centrum West"), Ully Triani ("Stay With Me"), Rick Paul Van Mulligen ("A'dam E.V.A."), Alexandra Gottardo ("Tanah Air"), Hossan Leong ("The Forbidden City") and Jimmy T ("Robocop 3").

The creator and showrunner of GRISSE is Mike Wiluan ("Buffalo Boys"), who directed alongside Tony Tilse (HBO Asia's "Serangoon Road"; "Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries") and Ler Jiyuan ("Gone Case," "The Love Machine").
