First-look: Julia Stiles in new Riviera teaser trailer

The Côte d’Azur welcomes a new heroine

Sky Atlantic has debuted a new teaser trailer for it’s original ten-part drama Riviera, starring Julia Stiles (the Bourne series).

Riviera see Stiles play Georgina Clios, the smart and resourceful second wife of Constantine Clios who dies in mysterious circumstances in a yacht explosion in the opening episode. Georgina slowly begins a journey from light to dark as she discovers how little she knew about the man she loved and the world he lived in.

Julia Stiles commented: “I think ‘a sunny place for shady people’ is a great way to describe this show. While this world is seemingly very glamorous, opulent and beautiful, all is not what it seems and that is echoed in our main characters.”

Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones), Adrian Lester (Hustle), Anthony LaPaglia (Without a Trace) and Phil Davis (Poldark) also star.

Riviera is created by Oscar-winning writer and director Neil Jordan (The Borgias), and based on an idea by former U2 manager Paul McGuinness.

Riviera will debut in the UK exclusively on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV from 15 June 2017.
