Julia Stiles (Nicky Parsons in the Bourne franchise) stars in the 10-episode thriller Riviera, premiering tomorrow, September 14, on subscription streaming service Sundance Now.
The series was a big hit when it premiered on Britain’s Sky Atlantic channel earlier this year. Sky described it as “an intoxicating thriller set in the sun-drenched south of France, the opulent playground of the world’s filthy rich” with “morally ambiguous characters” and “audacious excess,” according to The Guardian. Sundance notes that Stiles’ recently widowed character undergoes “an education in lying, double-dealing, outright theft and shocking criminality.”
Besides Stiles, the international cast also features Lena Olin (Chocolate), Adrian Lester (Hustle), Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones), Anthony LaPaglia (Without a Trace) and Phil Davis (Poldark).
Sundance Now, offering independent films, documentaries and TV series, costs $6.99 monthly or $59.99 annually after a seven-day free trial. It’s available at sundancenow.com, or via iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Xbox, Fire TV and Chromecast.
