The Third Day will premiere on Sky Atlantic on Tuesday September 15th (time-slot TBC), it has been announced.
The Third Day tells three, stand-alone but interconnected stories, not only on screen but also in a live, immersive event. The first story, titled Summer, tells the story of 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. Following Summer, viewers will get the chance to become part of The Third Day world at a major immersive theatre event.
The final story, titled Winter, follows Helen, a strong-willed outsider who comes to the island seeking answers, but whose arrival precipitates a fractious battle to decide its fate. Both Summer and Winter will consist of three episodes. Each story can be experienced separately, with Summer and Winter working together as a complete series – but all three parts together describe a larger narrative, creating a unique experience for those who seek it. The Third Day is produced by Sky Studios in association with HBO, Plan B and Punchdrunk and stars Jude Law and Naomie Harris. The scripts are being penned by Dennis Kelly, Kit de Waal and Dean O’Loughlin. Marc Munden and Philippa Lowthorpe are directing.
