Presented by SKY VISION.

Julia Stiles heads to the glamorous French Riviera for a tense and gripping new 10-part drama created by Academy® Award winning writer Neil Jordan. American Art Curator, Georgina (Stiles) lives in the South of France, having found love with husband Constantine (Anthony LaPaglia), a billionaire businessman and philanthropist. Her life amongst the international super rich is one of private jets, fine art and extravagant parties. But her world is, almost literally, blown to pieces when Constantine is killed in a yacht explosion, an event that leads her to uncover the dark underbelly to their Vanity Fair lifestyle – the grit beneath the gloss.

The mystery surrounding Constantine's death sees Georgina united uncomfortably in grief with Constantine’s ex-wife – the elegant and formidable Irina (Lena Olin) – who sees her not just as the woman who stole Constantine’s affections, but those of their children Christos (Dimitri Leonidas), Adam (Iwan Rheon) and Adriana (Roxane Duran). However, familial rivalries are the last thing on Georgina’s mind, as the life she thought she had continues to unravel and she embarks on a dangerous path to uncovering the truth about her husband and the world he inhabited.

 Catch the following talent at the screening: cast members Julia Stiles, Lena Olin, Adrian Lester, Dimitri Leonidas and Roxane Duran, plus Liza Marshall (executive producer), Paul McGuinness (executive producer) and Foz Allan (series producer).

Sky Vision handles the worldwide distribution for Riviera.
