HBO announced the premiere date for their new limited series “The Third Day” starring Academy Award nominees Jude Law (“The Talented Mr. Ripley“) and Naomie Harris.(“Moonlight“)

Created by Felix Barrett and Dennis Kelly, “The Third Day” is set to debut on Monday, Sept. 14 at 9:00 PM EST.

The six-episode series is divided into two sections, “Summer” and “Winter.” The first three episodes, “Summer” follows 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 lead the islanders to reveal a shocking secret. “Summer” is written by Dennis Kelly and directed by Marc Munden.

“Winter” unfolds over the latter three episodes and stars Naomie Harris as Helen, a strong-willed outsider who comes to the island seeking answers, but whose arrival precipitates a fractious battle to decide its fate as the lines between fantasy and fact are distorted. “Winter” is written by Kit De Waal, Dean O’Loughlin, and Dennis Kelly and directed by Philippa Lowthorpe.

The show also stars Katherine Waterston (“Inherent Vice”), Emily Watson (“Chernobyl”) and Paddy Considine (“The Outsider”).

“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 world-renowned immersive theatre company Punchdrunk and writer Dennis Kelly (“Utopia,” “Pulling”). Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Felix Barrett, and Dennis Kelly executive produce.
