A Sky film crew is in Thanet today (November 5) filming for a new series which will star Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams.

The crew has been spotted at Fort Mansions- Fort Crescent in Margate this morning and are expected to move to Margate Main Sands this afternoon.

Parking restrictions have been put in place along Marine Drive in preparation for the crew who will be filming by the sea defences.

They have also filmed in Westbrook and the Stone Pier and are expected to head to St Mildred’s Bay, Westgate, tomorrow.

They are shooting for series Two Weeks to Live (working title), which is a comic tale of love and revenge born from a seemingly harmless prank that goes terribly wrong.


Written by Gaby Hull (Cheat), the six-part series will be produced by Kudos, part of Endemol Shine UK, and revolve around Kim Noakes (played by Maisie Williams), a strange young misfit who was just a little girl when her father died in murky circumstances. Following his death, her mother whisked her away to a remote rural life of seclusion and bizarre survival techniques.

Now all grown up, Kim sets out into the real world for the first time to begin a secret mission of honouring her father’s memory. Meanwhile, socially awkward Nicky isn’t good at impressing girls, and when Kim walks into his and brother Dave’s local pub, it sets in motion a chaotic series of events that puts all their lives in danger.

Maisie Williams said: “ I think Two Weeks To Live has really great potential and I want to make something incredible with this wonderful team!”

The series will air on Sky One and streaming service NOW TV in the UK and Ireland next year.
