Jude Law and Naomie Harris star in a new six-part limited series exclusively for HBO, The Third Day. A psychological thriller set on a mysterious British Island where all is not as it seems.
Told over the first three episodes, “Summer” stars Jude Law as Sam, a man who is drawn to a mysterious island off the British coast where he encounters a group of islanders set on preserving their traditions at any cost. Isolated from the mainland, Sam is unable to leave the idyllic and dangerously enchanting world he has discovered, where the secretive rituals of its inhabitants bring him to grapple with experiences of loss and trauma hidden in his past through the distorted lens of the present. As boundaries between fantasy and reality fragment, his quest to unlock the truth leads the islanders to reveal a shocking secret.
After “Summer” comes “Fall” where Law and Jess, an American historian and frequent visitor of the island played by Katherin Waterson, will follow the events of a single say in real time. Capturing events in one live and continuous take. This cinematic broadcast will invite viewers deeper into the mysterious and suspenseful world of The Third Day, and blur and distort the lines between what’s real and what’s not.
“Winter” will unfold over the remaining three episodes where Helen, played by Naomie Harris, a strong-willed outsider who comes to the island with her two daughters to seek answers. Precipitates a fractious battle to decide its fate as the lines between fantasy and fact are distorted, and must quickly determine who can be trusted.
Along with Jude Law, Naomie Harris and Katherin Waterson, The Third Day also features HBO alums Emily Watson and Paddy Considine.
The Third Day is a co-production between Sky and HBO. It is the first original drama to be produced by Sky’s new production house, Sky Studios, in conjunction with Plan B Entertainment.
The Third Day premieres September 14th on HBO and HBO Max
