The entire season of the Cote d ’Azure-set drama will be available for download from tonight with each episode showing every Thursday at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.

 

This intoxicating thriller follows the moral descent of American art dealer Georgina Clios (Julia Stiles) whose idyllic life is shattered when her billionaire husband is killed in mysterious circumstances.

Lydia was recently included on BBC’s 2017 talent hotlist and has several television and film projects in development with Kudos, Film4, Warp Films, BBC Studios, Bad Wolf and House Productions.
