HBO Max Reveals Premiere Date for New Comedy 'Starstruck' Created by and Starring Rose Matafeo

HBO Max has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original comedy series Starstruck created by and starring Rose Matafeo.

The 6-episode first season will premiere on Thursday, June 10.

Jessie (Matafeo) is a millennial living in East London juggling two dead end jobs and navigating the awkward morning-after-the-night-before when she discovers the complications of accidentally sleeping with famous movie star Tom. What she thought would become an amusing anecdote soon turns into something more, as the couple realize they can't keep away from each other.

The comedy also stars Nikesh Patel, Sindhu Vee, Emma Sidi and Minnie Driver.

Matafeo and Alice Snedden write the series, with Karen Maine directing. They executive produce with Jon Thoday, Richard Allen-Turner and Rob Aslett. Avalon Television produces.
