Naomie Harris Joins Jude Law in HBO-Sky Limited Series THIRD DAY

Naomie Harris Joins Jude Law in HBO-Sky Limited Series THIRD DAY
Oscar-nominated "Moonlight" actress Naomie Harris has joined the cast of HBO and Sky's upcoming limited series "The Third Day", co-created by "Utopia"'s Dennis Kelly and immersive theater company Punchdrunk International founder Felix Barrett. Kelly, Kit de Waal and Dean O'Loughlin will write the series.

The six-part series will be divided into two distinct halves. Directed by Marc Munden, the first half, titled "Summer", follows Sam (Jude Law), a man drawn to a mysterious island off the British coast where he encounters a group of islanders set on preserving their traditions at any cost.

The second half, "Winter", is directed by Philippa Lowthorpe, and it follows Helen (Harris), a strong-willed outsider who comes to the island seeking answers, but whose arrival precipitates a fractious battle to decide its fate.

This is the first original drama to be produced by Sky's new Sky Studios production house, in partnership with Plan B Entertainment, Punchdrunk International and HBO. Other collaborations between HBO and Sky include "Chernobyl" and the upcoming period drama "Catherine the Great" starring Helen Mirren.

Harris can be seen next in the cop thriller "Black and Blue", and she will also return to the James Bond franchise as Eve Moneypenny in the upcoming 25th installment of the classic spy series, titled "No Time to Die", which is due in theaters in April 2020.

"The Third Day" will air in 2020 on HBO in the U.S. and on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW TV in the U.K. and Ireland.
