Warner Bros. Discovery-owned streamer Max has commissioned The Easterngate, a Polish original spy thriller

Directed by Jan P. Matuszyński (The Last Family, Król), the series began production last month and delves into the world of modern espionage during an emerging conflict and international unrest.

Lena Góra stars as Ewa Oginiec, who, after a personal drama, aims to exit the secret service and start over. Things take a twist when her partner, also an agent, gets outed by Russian intelligence and vanishes mysteriously.

The title The Easterngate refers to the Suwałki Gap, which is a critical spot along the border between Poland and Lithuania, as well as Belarus and Russia. The Suwałki Gap is widely recognized as one of Europe’s top three hotspots, a critical territory for protecting NATO’s eastern flank and maintaining regional stability.
