Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner is set to star alongside Jacob Fortune-Lloyd and Archie Madekwe in a new Prime Video series, Haven (w/t).

One Day prodco Drama Republic is making the series with crime novelist S A Nikias writing (his series debut) and Sam Miller directing the first three episodes; the latter also exec produces.

The high-octane thriller centres on an ordinary office worker (Turner), who finds herself at the mercy of violent thieves who break into Lochmill Capital’s office and try to steal billions from people’s pensions.

Drama Republic’s Rebecca de Souza said: “When we asked first-time tv screenwriter Sotiris Nikias if he’d like to have a go at writing a thriller we were astonished by the results. His rollercoasting, nail-biting and funny scripts have quite rightly attracted a tremendous cast and top-tier creative team. We couldn’t be more delighted.”

“This attention grabbing series, written by S.A. Nikias, is a uniquely thrilling ride and serves as an ideal addition to round out our Pan-English slate implemented by Rola Bauer and her team,” added Vernon Sanders, head of television, Amazon MGM Studios.

“Haven, shepherded by the fantastic team at Drama Republic, with the wonderful Sam Miller set to direct, and starring the incredibly talented Sophie Turner, Jacob Fortune-Lloyd, and Archie Madekwe has all the ingredients for a gripping, addictive, entertaining story for our global customers to enjoy.
