Sky Studios and HBO have confirmed that BAFTA nominated actress Naomie Harris (Moonlight, Skyfall), will join the cast of The Third Day, alongside Jude Law.

BAFTA award winning director Philippa Lowthorpe (The Crown, Three Girls) is also confirmed to direct three episodes, joining previously announced BAFTA award winner Marc Munden (National Treasure, Utopia).

The Third Day is a story told over six episodes and in two distinct halves. The first – 'Summer', directed by Marc Munden, sees Sam (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 – 'Winter', directed by Philippa Lowthorpe, 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.

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 partnership with Plan B Entertainment, the world-renowned immersive theatre company Punchdrunk International and writer Dennis Kelly (Utopia, Pulling).
