New York, NY, August 16, 2016 — Cinemáx will premiere MOTEL, acquired from HBO Latin America, on August 18, 2016 at 10 PM EST. The 6-episode Brazilian series will be the first original Latino series on the premium network. The series explores a variety of cinematic styles, all within the context of the sensual, erotic, mysterious, and perverse activities in one motel, Divine Sin. Each episode of Motel takes place in a different room of Divine Sin and portrays a different genre — suspense, comedy, horror, romance, drama, and police procedural — each with new characters, a new story, and a new angle from which we can peek inside the amorous walls of Divine Sin. You can also catch episodes on MAX GO.
