Niamh Algar and Tom Hollander are to star in a new Sky Original thriller Iris with filming commencing this month in Sardinia, Italy.

Iris is written and created by Neil Cross, creator of Luther. The lead director is Terry McDonough.

Iris is a chase thriller about a rootless and enigmatic genius, Iris Nixon (Algar) who steals a code from charming philanthropist Cameron McIntyre (Hollander) and goes on the run. Armed only with her lethal intelligence and chameleonic charm, the clock is ticking for her to work out what the code could unleash before she is found.

Joining the cast alongside Niamh Algar and Tom Hollander are newcomer Meréana Tomlinson, Sacha Dhawan, Maya Sansa, Peter Sullivan, and Debi Mazar.

Iris is a Sky Studios and Fremantle co-production. Wildside is providing production services in Italy. Series producer is Tim Bricknell. Susan E. Connolly and Ian Scott McCullough are writing episodes. Executive producers are Neil Cross, Terry McDonough; Jenni Sherwood and Dante Di Loreto for Fremantle, and Adrian Sturges for Sky Studios.

Iris will be available on Sky and streaming service NOW in the UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Fremantle will handle international sales of the series.
