An island off the British coast where not everything is what it seems: Sky shows the dark Sky / HBO co-production in the original English version.
The idyll is deceptive: In the new Sky / HBO coproduction “The Third Day” things are wrong. Jude Law and Naomie Harris take on the leading roles and travel to an isolated island off the British coast. The six-part psychodrama from the production of Dennis Kelly and Felix Barrett is told in two separate but connected stories, called “Summer” and “Winter”. From Tuesday, September 15, the series will be available on demand with one episode per week in the original English version on Sky Ticket and via Sky Q.
In “Summer”, written by Dennis Kelly and directed by Marc Munden, Sam (Jude Law) goes to an island off the British coast. Fascinated by the idyll and isolated from the mainland, Sam is unable to leave the island again. But the islanders are behaving strangely: They force him to deal with the traumatic experiences of his past with the help of puzzling rituals. The boundaries between fantasy and reality become blurred.
In the second part, “Winter”, written by Kit de Waal, Dean O’Loughlin and Dennis Kelly and directed by Philippa Lowthorpe, Naomie Harris plays the leading role. Wayward outsider Helen (Naomie Harris) has also come to the island in search of answers. But with their arrival, their struggle for survival begins.
In addition to Jude Law and Naomie Harris, Katherine Waterston (“Fantastic Beasts”), Emily Watson (“Chernobyl”) and Paddy Considine (“The Outsider”) can be seen in other roles. From November 26th, Sky Atlantic will show the German dubbed version in double episodes on Thursdays from 8.15 p.m.
