“Mosaic”, a six-part limited series from Steven Soderbergh, explores the psychological underpinnings of love and murder in a small town, blurring the line between reality and memory. The series debuts here at the same time as the US next Tuesday (January 23) at 8am, with a same day primetime encore at 7pm on HBO.



New episodes premiere on January 24, 25 and 26, also at 8am, with the final two episodes airing back-to-back on Saturday, January 27 at 8am.

The show will also stream on HBO and HBO GO On AIS PLAY And AIS PLAYBOX.

“Mosaic” stars Sharon Stone along with an ensemble cast that includes Garrett Hedlund, Frederick Weller and Beau Bridges.

Directed by Soderbergh and written by Ed Solomon (“Men in Black,” “Charlie’s Angels), the story is set against the backdrop of a mountain resort town. “Mosaic” follows popular children’s book author and illustrator Olivia Lake (Stone), whose literary success makes her a local celebrity in the tight-knit community. At the annual fundraiser, where she is accompanied by trusted friend and confidante JC (Paul Reubens), she sets her sights on a handsome, young newcomer in town, aspiring graphic artist Joel Hurley (Hedlund). Encouraged by the doting and flirtatious Olivia, he accepts her offer for a place to stay and work, but the unexpected arrival of Joel’s girlfriend, Laura (Maya Kazan), sends Olivia into a jealous tailspin.

Olivia subsequently has a chance meeting with charming stranger Eric Neill (Frederick Weller), another new arrival in town, whose duplicitous intentions to sweep her off her feet for financial gain have an unexpected outcome.

When Olivia disappears on New Year’s Day, leaving behind a blood-soaked studio, “Mosaic” becomes an intricate whodunit, and it is up to detective Nate Henry (Devin Ratray) and Eric’s sister, Petra (Jennifer Ferrin), to unravel the mystery.

“Mosaic” was filmed in Park City, Utah in the winter of 2015 and 2016.
