HBO‘s Long-Developing Harry Potter Series Locks In Creative Team


HBO‘s long-developing Harry Potter series has locked in two key members of its creative team. The series has named Francesca Gardiner as its writer and showrunner and tapped Mark Mylod to direct multiple episodes. Both are Emmy winners for HBO’s Succession — Gardiner as part of the show’s producing team and Mylod as both director and producer.



The Potter series was originally slated for Max, where it had been in development since 2021. As part of a strategy and branding shift for the streamer and its Warner Bros. Discovery sibling HBO, however, the series — along with It prequel Welcome to Derry and the just-ordered DC Studios drama Lanterns — will become HBO originals, meaning that they’ll air on the cable channel as well as stream on Max.
