A dark underbelly beneath the glamour of the South of France is revealed in Sky Atlantic drama Riviera. Julia Stiles plays art curator Georgina Clios, whose billionaire husband Constantine is killed in a yacht explosion.
The strange circumstances surrounding her husband’s death lead Georgina to uncover the truth about him and the world he inhabited, while uniting uncomfortably in grief with Constantine’s ex-wife Irina (Lena Olin).
Stiles and Olin tell DQ about the series and discuss the empowerment that comes with playing the same character across 10 hours of television drama.
Meanwhile, coproducer Paul McGuinness, the former manager of Irish rock band U2, reveals how he worked with writer Neil Jordan to bring to life his idea of a television series set among the wealthy elite who inhabit the French Riviera.
Riviera is produced by Archery Pictures and Primo Productions and distributed by Sky Vision.
