saoirse June 14, 2019 Share June 14, 2019 Quote Jude Law is set to star in HBO and Sky drama The Third Day. The Young Pope star is to front the series, which is produced by Sky Studios and Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment. The show is being written by Utopia writer Dennis Kelly and is produced in association with theater company Punchdrunk International. The Third Day is the latest co-production between Sky and HBO following the success of Chernobyl and forthcoming Helen Mirren-fronted period drama Catherine The Great. In the series, Law plays 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 limited series will be directed by National Treasure director Marc Munden and is produced by The Enfield Haunting’s Adrian Sturges. Kit de Waal and Dean O’Loughlin are also writers for the series. Production starts next month.
