HBO Max has released the first trailer for Maisie Williams’ upcoming series Two Week To Live. The story follows a young woman (Williams) who has been forced to live in seclusion for years thanks to her doomsday-prepping Mom. The young woman ends up escaping and embarks on an adventure that involves revenge, romance, and action.
Two Weeks to Live is a comedic story “of love and revenge born from a seemingly harmless prank that goes terribly wrong. Kim Noakes, an early 20-something oddball who, since the murder of her father, has been sequestered away in the wilderness with her doomsday-prepping mother for most of her life. Feeling compelled to go on a belated coming-of-age adventure, Kim sets out to find her dad’s killer and along the way, ropes mismatched brothers Jay and Nicky into her scheme.”
When previously talking about the movie, Williams said, “I really feel like this is such a feel-good show for so many people and not feel-good in the typical sense of it being all rainbows and smiles. There are so many very different people who have come together and created this show and for that reason, this is truly something a lot of people can enjoy.”
This project was originally developed as a movie, but they ended up wanting to tell the story in a series format. When talking about that, Williams said, “There was enough story that we could spread it across multiple episodes and by keeping them to around 30 minutes, I think it makes them really strong and punchy, funny and tight. There’s also an interesting cat and mouse chase that lends itself really well to an episodic structure so you can have these little cliffhangers in the middle too.”
It looks like it’ll be a lot of fun to watch! The series also stars Sian Clifford, Taheen Modak, Mawaan Rizwan, Jason Flemyng, Sean Pertwee, and Thalissa Teixeir.
The six-part series was created by Gaby Hull, and it arrives on HBO Max November 5th.
