Two Weeks To Live is a new six-part comedy about a girl on a secret mission to honour her father.
It follows Kim Noakes (Maisie Williams), a strange young misfit who was just a little girl when her father died in murky circumstances.
Following the death of her father, her mother Tina (Sian Clifford) 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 beging this unique quest for her father.
Meanwhile, socially awkward Nicky (Mawaan Rizwan) isn’t good at impressing girls, and when Kim walks into his and brother Jay’s (Taheen 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 6 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.
Alongside Maisie and Sian, cast members include Kerry Howard (Beth), Thalissa Teixeira (Thompson) and Jason Flemyng (Brooks).
Created and written by Gaby Hull (Cheat), the series is produced by Kudos, part of Endemol Shine UK.
It will feature on Sky in September 2002.
