"To tell a story that spans TV and live action has been a long held ambition of mine. The Third Day will be both a TV show and a world you can enter, giving viewers the chance to live and breathe the narrative."

– Felix Barrett

‌HBO's The Third Day stars Law, Harris, Katherine Waterston (Fantastic Beasts films), Emily Watson (Chernobyl), and Paddy Considine (The Outsider).


HBO's The Third Day is a co-production between the cable network and Sky – produced by new production house, Sky Studios, in partnership with Plan B Entertainment and Punchdrunk International. Kelly executive produces with Gardner and Kleiner for Plan B, Barrett for Punchdrunk International, Munden and Lowthorpe. Adrian Sturges serves as producer.

"I wanted to make a series that was unsettling and disturbing but that also spoke to fears that ran deeper than horror. The themes of the Third Day have long been obsessions of mine – it is about loss and hope and how both of those things can distort the mind in surprising and brutal ways."

– Dennis Kelly
