Based on an untold true story, "Chernobyl" is a five-part miniseries airing on HBO. Writer, creator and executive producer Craig Mazin began researching the Chernobyl disaster in 2014, using a wide variety of materials, including several books, government reports from inside and outside of the Soviet Union and first-person accounts. He spoke to nuclear scientists to learn how a reactor works and interviewed former Soviet citizens to gain a better sense of the culture in 1986. The haunting score is by Hildur Guðnadóttir, Icelandic composer, cello player, and singer, who has composed a number of film scores for films.
