Two Weeks to Live starts on NOW TV later this year

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams joins forces with Fleabag’s Sian Clifford in this dark comedy which sees an ill-judged prank go violently wrong.

What is it about?

After Kim’s (Maisie Williams) father died in strange circumstances when she was a young child, her mother Tina (Sian Clifford) upped sticks to give her a remote rural upbringing, where bizarre survival techniques were essential. 

Now an adult, Kim embarks on a secret quest to honour her father’s memory, and experience the real world for the first time. 

On her journey, Kim meets siblings Nicky and Jay in a pub. Chaos ensues when a prank goes wrong and the trio, joined by Kim’s mum Tina, soon find themselves on the run from the police and a group of murderous gangsters with a massive stash of stolen cash. 

Thanks to Kim’s unorthodox upbringing, she knows how to turn a deer into a sleeping bag and strip a pistol in 6 seconds flat. Will it be enough to survive the pickle the crew have got themselves into?
