Atmospheric HBO / Sky thriller The Third Day, starring Jude Law, Naomie Harris, Katherine Waterston and Emily Watson, will launch in early December.
The six part series hails from production company Plan B, writer Dennis Kelly (Utopia) and UK theatre company Punchdrunk International, which produced the hit production Sleep No More. Marc Munden (National Treasure) directed the first three episodes, while Philippa Lowthorpe (The Crown) directed the last three.
This premiered internationally in September.
The dark, intriguing drama tells the unnerving tale of a British island steeped in mythology that ensnares two mainlanders, one who ends up there accidentally (Law) and another who arrives on a hunt for answers (Harris).
The limited series features a formidable cast line-up including Law (Oscar® nominee for Cold Mountain), Harris (Academy Award nominee for Moonlight), Katherine Waterston (Fantastic Beasts), Emily Watson (Emmy® and Golden Globe nominee for Chernobyl), and Paddy Considine (The Outsider).
Told over the course of six episodes, The Third Day is divided into two parts: “Summer” sees Sam (Law) rescuing a troubled young girl and accompanying her home to the otherworldly and microcosmic Osea Island, while “Winter” follows Helen (Harris), a strong-willed outsider who comes to the same island seeking answers.
8.30pm Monday December 7 on FOX Showcase (all 6 episodes from midday at Foxtel On Demand).
