HBO and Sky have greenlit a new six-part drama limited series, “The Third Day.” The logline: Jude Law stars as Sam, who after being drawn to a mysterious Island off the British Coast, is thrown into the unusual world of its secretive inhabitants. Isolated from the mainland, the rituals of the island begin to overwhelm him, and he is confronted by a trauma from his past. As the line between reality and fantasy blurs, Sam finds himself immersed in an emotional quest which puts him at odds with the islanders and begins to threaten their way of life.
The six part, one-hour episode limited series will be directed by 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.
Production will begin on “The Third Day” in the UK in July 2019 and the limited series will air in the UK and Ireland next year on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW TV, and in the United States on HBO.
