Set on a mysterious island off the coast of Britain, The Third Day tells the story of Sam (Law) who encounters the island’s secretive inhabitants and their strange rituals. Fantasy and reality began to blur for Sam, triggering past traumas, and brings him into conflict with the islanders.
The project is produced in partnership with Dennis Kelly (Utopia, Pulling), Plan B Entertainment and immersive theater company Punchdrunk International. The series will be directed by BAFTA-winner Marc Munden (National Treasure, Utopia) and will be produced by Adrian Sturges (Chimerica, The Enfield Haunting). Kit de Waal and Dean O’Loughlin are also writers for the series.
The Third Day will shoot in the U.K. in July and will air next year on Sky Atlantic in Europe and HBO in North America.
The Third Day will be the first original to come from Sky’s new production house Sky Studios.
