HBO Canada’s Westworld is biggest series premiere ever

HBO's new series WestworldHBO’s latest series that is getting a lot of buzz is Westworld, which is executive-produced by J.J. Abrams.

Kicking off the show on Sunday, October 2, the series delivered record-breaking views with over half a million viewers. This marked the best performance of a series premiere in the history of Canadian Pay TV networks, including HBO Canada and The Movie Network.

The series stars some of Hollywood heavyweights, including Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton and Ed Harris.

    This show is brilliant with a strong cast and superb acting and writing. Even though we’re only two weeks in, I find myself re-watching episodes in anticipation of the next. Truly one of my favourite new shows.
