Watch: New clip for Sky’s The Lazarus Project
James R | On 24, May 2022
Joe Barton’s new thriller The Lazarus Project arrives on Sky next month, and a new clip gives us a taste of the action-packed thriller.
Barton, who wrote Giri/Haji, writes the series, which follows George, who wakes up one day and finds himself reliving a day from months ago and thinks he’s lost his mind. All of his recent milestones have been undone, including his success at work and his marriage to the love of his life, Sarah. Worst of all, he seems to be the only one who has noticed what’s happened.
That is, until he meets Archie, who recruits George for the Lazarus Project – a secret organisation that has harnessed the ability to turn back time every time the world is at threat of extinction. Like George, those who work at Lazarus are the few people on earth with the ability to remember the events that are undone when time goes back. Alongside colleagues Archie, standoffish Shiv, and their steely leader Wes, George works to prevent global catastrophe – including trying to track down the formidable Rebrov, a wanted criminal intent on detonating a nuclear warhead and destroying the world.
The series stars Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You, Gangs of London), alongside Anjli Mohindra (Vigil, Bodyguard), Tom Burke (Strike, Mank), Caroline Quentin (Dickensian, Bridgerton), Rudi Dharmalingam (Wakefield, The Split) and Charly Clive (Pure). It is directed by Marco Kreuzpaintner, who helmed the Amazon Prime Video series Beat.
The series will premiere on Sky Max and NOW on 16th June, with all episodes arriving at once. In the meantime, here’s the clip:
