Maisie Williams will be returning to the small screen soon for her first TV role since 'Game of Thrones'. The upcoming project is a Sky Original comedy series called 'Two Weeks To Live'.
Williams will lead the cast as a young misfit called Kim Noakes who lives a secluded country life. However, when an unlikely prank goes wrong, Kim finds herself on the run from a murderous gangster and the police with a massive bag of stolen cash. She soon finds herself relying on the survival techniques she picked up from her upbringing to get her though. Surelook, isn't that just a modern-day 'Game of Thrones'?
The six-part series will be produced by The Tunneland Humans outfit Kudos and written by Gaby Hull ('Cheat').
Williams said of her new role, "Looking forward to getting into something new, I think 'Two Weeks To Live' has really great potential and I want to make something incredible with this wonderful team!"
Jon Mountague, Director of Comedy, Sky added, “With Maisie Williams leading from the front, 'Two Weeks To Live' is to die for. Bold, British and very, very original, we can’t wait to wow audiences with even more great comedy”.
'Two Weeks To Live' will begin filming later this year and will air on Sky One and streaming service NOW TV in the UK and Ireland next year.
