HBO and Kate Winslet’s fruitful creative relationship continues with The Regime, a limited series premiering in 2024. Premium Cable released a sneak peek of the series at a Warner Bros. Discovery press event on Wednesday.
From writer/executive producer of Succession Will Tracy, the series, formerly titled The Palace, tells the story of a year in the palace of a “modern European regime” that is beginning to unravel. (This description is a slight change from an earlier sentence that referred to the government in question as an “authoritarian regime.)

The teaser mainly focuses on a meeting between Winslet’s Chancellor and an envoy from the US, played by Martha Plimpton. “We need him to show us credibility and trustworthiness,” says Plimpton’s character.
“We are only realizing our dream: our dream of a new Europe, without borders, without cruelty. There are times when you have to choose the harder path. I chose this path, but I did it in the name of freedom,” says Winslet’s character, while the scenes below his voiceover show the exact opposite.
