Adrian Lester & Phil Davis To Join Julia Stiles In Sky’s Riviera

Sky has revealed casting details for its ten part pan European drama Riviera created by Neil Jordan (The Borgias), based on an idea by Paul McGuinness and co-written by author John Banville (The Sea).

After just a year of marriage, Georgina’s (Julia Stiles) luxurious life is blown apart when her art collector husband Constantine is killed in an explosion aboard the yacht of a Russian oligarch and arms dealer.

Believing there to be more to the tragedy, Georgina sets out to uncover what really happened. However, as the truth of Constantine’s dealings emerge, she begins to realise who she was really married to.

In order to protect her family and their fortune, Georgina will have to adapt to her dangerous new reality and become an A-plus student in the brutal art of survival.

Playing alongside Julia Stiles are Adrian Lester (Undercover) as Georgina’s friend and art dealer Robert Carver; Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) and Dimitri Leonidas (The Monuments Men) as Constantine’s sons Adam and Christos; Lena Olin (Vinyl) as Irina, Constantine’s ex-wife; and Phil Davis as Jukes, the art fraud investigator.

Riviera will air on Sky Atlantic in the UK, Ireland and Italy in 2017 as well as on the Sky platform in Germany and Austria.
