Sky Studios set for European production


New production entity Sky Studios has launched with a focus on development and filming across Europe.

Sky is currently enjoying the commercial and critical success of drama series Chernobyl, based on the true story of the infamous nuclear reactor disaster in Ukraine in 1986.

“Sky Studios will drive our vision to be the leading force in European content development and production,” said Jeremy Darroch, group chief executive of Sky.

“Our ambition is to make Sky Studios famous for quality content and a place where Europe’s top creatives will want to do their best work.

“Being part of Comcast enables us to increase our investment and to maximise the advantage and leverage of the Sky Group and our partners, NBCUniversal.”

The first Sky Studios production will be six-part drama The Third Day that will tell the story of a man who becomes overwhelmed by a secretive community of people living on an isolated island off the UK coast.

Jude Law will star and Marc Munden will direct when production starts in the UK next month. 

Sky Studios is producing the drama in partnership with Plan B Entertainment, immersive theatre company Punchdrunk International and writer Dennis Kelly.
