Warner Bros. Discovery announced "The Easterngate", one of the first Max Original series in Poland, which started production in March 2024. It´s a suspense thriller series that delves into the world of modern espionage during an emerging conflict and international unrest. It paints a vivid picture of the clandestine world while also exploring the personal struggles of an individual caught in the web of the secret service.

NATO’s eastern flank, Russian war maneuvers at a hotspot of strategic importance for the entire continent. THE EASTERNGATE follows the journey of 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 series explores the mechanism of provocation on the global stage, as well as the high stakes-battle between intelligence agencies in a world gripped by the complexities of hybrid warfare. Ewa Ogniniec is played by Polish actress Lena Góra. The series is directed by award-winning Jan P. Matuszyński.

The title refers to the Suwałki Gap, which is a critical spot along the border between Poland and Lithuania, both NATO member states, as well as Belarus and Russia (including the Kaliningrad Oblast which is a separate exclave from the main Russian territory). 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.
