Mawaan Rizwan and Sian Clifford join Two Weeks To Live

Maisie Williams' new Sky One comedy

Comedian Mawaan Rizwan, Fleabag’s Sian Clifford and Him & Her star Kerry Howard have joined the cast of Sky’s new comedy Two Weeks To Live.

They will star opposite Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams in the six  half-hour episodes, which have just started shooting in Kent and London

The broadcaster today released the first of image of Williams in her role as Kim, a strange young misfit brought up in rural seclusion by her mother Tina after her father died in murky circumstances. Clifford, who was Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s sister Claire in Fleabag,  plays Tina.

Now grown up, Kim begins a secret mission of honouring her father’s memory. Rizwan plays a socially awkward character called Nicky whom she encounters in a pub along with his brother Jay, played by Taheen Modak.

The three of them end up on the run from murderous gangsters and the police with a massive bag of stolen cash. But Kim turns out to have expert survival skills.

The role played by Howard  – sister of comic Russell who previously played a fugitive from criminals in BBC Three’s Witless– has not been revealed. Also joining the cast are  Thalissa Teixeira and Jason Flemyng.

Two Weeks To Live will air on Sky One and Now TV next year.
