Jude Law to Star in Sky and HBO Drama THE THIRD DAY

"Captain Marvel" star Jude Law has signed on star in the upcoming limited series "The Third Day". The six-episode miniseries marks a new collaboration between Sky and HBO following the success of "Chernobyl". Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment will also be involved. This will be the first original from Sky Studios, a brand new production unit.

Co-created and written by Dennis Kelly ("Utopia"), the series follows Sam (Law), 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.

BAFTA-winning director Marc Munden ("National Treasure", "Utopia") will helm the entire series. Kit de Waal and Dean O'Loughlin are also writers for the series. Adrian Sturges ("Chimerica", "The Enfield Haunting") is on board to produce, and filming will start in the U.K. in July.

Other upcoming HBO and Sky projects include the period drama "Catherine the Great" starring Oscar-winner Helen Mirren, the dark underground thriller "Temple" starring Mark Strong, the comedy "Brassic" written by and starring Joe Gilgun and Michelle Keegan, and the series "In the Long Run" created by and starring Idris Elba.
