Prepare for a gripping ride as Sky Studios and Fremantle unveil their latest co-production, "Iris," a sun-soaked chase thriller set against the backdrop of picturesque Sardinia, Italy. Helmed by the acclaimed writer and creator Neil Cross, the mastermind behind the hit series "Luther," and directed by Terry McDonough of "Breaking Bad" fame, "Iris" promises to be an electrifying addition to the thriller genre.

Starring Niamh Algar ("Mary & George," "The Virtues") as the enigmatic genius Iris Nixon and Tom Hollander ("The White Lotus," "Feud: Capote vs. The Swans") as the charming philanthropist Cameron McIntyre, the series follows Iris as she embarks on a high-stakes journey after stealing a mysterious code from McIntyre. With the clock ticking and danger lurking at every turn, Iris must unravel the secrets behind the code before it's too late.

Joining Algar and Hollander are a talented ensemble cast including newcomer Meréana Tomlinson, Sacha Dhawan, Maya Sansa, Peter Sullivan, and Debi Mazar, promising a dynamic and captivating viewing experience.

Describing the series, Neil Cross commented, "'Iris' is an unapologetically exciting, witty, chase-driven adventure show and features a lead character the like of which I don't think we've ever met before on TV." With Algar and Hollander bringing their characters to life and McDonough's expert direction, "Iris" is poised to captivate audiences with its unique blend of suspense and intrigue.

"Iris" is set to commence filming this month in Sardinia, Italy, with Sky Studios and Fremantle co-producing the series. Wildside is providing production services in Italy, with McDonough and Sarah O'Gorman directing, and Tim Bricknell serving as Series Producer. Susan E. Connolly and Ian Scott McCullough are penning episodes.

"Iris" will be available on Sky and streaming service NOW in the UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria, with Fremantle handling international sales. Prepare to be enthralled by the riveting twists and turns of "Iris" as it takes viewers on a thrilling adventure like no other.
