First look: Maisie Williams in Two Weeks to Live

To mark the start of filming, Sky has released the first image of Maisie Williams as Kim in new comedy series, Two Weeks to Live.

The six-part series will debut on Sky One in 2020.

Two Weeks to Live tells a comic tale of love and revenge born from a seemingly harmless prank that goes terribly wrong.

Two Weeks To Live - Maisie Williams

Williams stars alongside Fleabag’s Sian Clifford, who takes on the role of Tina, Kim’s mother.

Alongside Maisie and Sian, cast members include Mawaan Rizwan, Taheen Modak, Kerry Howard, Thalissa Teixeira and Jason Flemyng.

The story follows Kim Stokes (Williams), a strange young misfit who was just a little girl when her father died in murky circumstances. Following his death, her mother Tina whisked her away to a remote rural life of seclusion and bizarre survival techniques.

Now all grown up, Kim sets out into the real world for the first time to begin a secret mission of honouring her father’s memory. Meanwhile, socially awkward Nicky (Rizwan) isn’t good at impressing girls, and when Kim walks into his and brother Jay’s (Modak) local pub, it sets in motion a chaotic series of events that puts all their lives in danger. Who would have thought a few drinks and an ill-judged prank could go so violently wrong?

Tina arrives in search of Kim and the unlikely crew soon find themselves on the run from murderous gangsters and the police with a massive bag of stolen cash. But Kim is no ordinary fish out of water – she’s more like a great white shark who knows how to strip a Smith & Wesson SDVE pistol in six seconds flat and skin a deer to make a sleeping bag whilst perfectly reciting the lyrics to ‘I Will Survive’.  With her in their team, they might all just get out of this alive.
