Maisie Williams to star in new Sky comedy
Game of Thrones actor Maisie Williams is set to star in Two Weeks To Live, a new comedy for Sky One, with filming due to begin later this year.
Two Weeks To Live (working title) is written by Gaby Hull and centres on Kim Noakes (Williams), a strange misfit who ends up on the run with stolen cash in a chaotic series of events after a prank goes badly wrong.
Kudos is producing the six-part series. Executive producer Phil Temple said: “Working on this project has been a blast from day one. Gaby’s scripts are fresh, full of surprises and very, very funny.
"In Kim he has created a truly iconic character and it is a dream for us to have the unique and awesome Maisie Williams bringing her to life.”
The show is the latest Sky original production to be greenlit; others include Catherine The Great, Code 404, Hit Men and Breeders.
