Premium cable network HBO has set a November premiere date for Emmy winner Matthew O’Neill and Perri Peltz’s limited docuseries Axios.

As previously announced, the four-part series will work closely with leading journalists from fledgling media company Axios to highlight the week ahead in politics, business, science and technology, as well as the topics shaping the future.

Axios was founded in 2016 by former Politico co-founder Mike Allen; former Politico chief White House correspondent, Jim VandeHei; and former Politico chief revenue officer, Roy Schwartz. The news and info site offers original and narrated coverage of media trends, tech, business and politics.

Each episode of the series, a copro between HBO Documentary Films and Axios, aims to provide coverage of a timely issue with a mixture of breaking news content, followed by documentary shorts, insights and exclusive interviews with major newsmakers to “help viewers better understand the trends that are reshaping America and the world around them.”

Peltz and O’Neill are directors and coproducers on the docuseries. HBO’s Nancy Abraham and Lisa Heller serve as executive producers. For Axios, co-founders Jim VandeHei (pictured left), Mike Allen (right) and Roy Schwartz serve as executive producers, alongside Axios EVP Evan Ryan.

Axios debuts across HBO ahead of the U.S. midterm elections on Nov. 4 at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT, with subsequent shows airing each Sunday. The series will also be available on HBO Now, HBO Go, HBO on Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.
