TVLine Items: Sophie Turner’s Heist Show, Ego Nwodim Joins Steph Curry Comedy and More

Prime Video is gearing up for the heist of the century with Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner. The streamer has given a series order for the new drama Haven, about an ordinary office worker who finds herself at the center of a high-stakes crime.

“A typical workday at a pension fund investment company, Lochmill Capital, is upended when violent thieves burst in and force Zara (played by Turner) and her best mate Luke (Saltburn’s Archie Madekwe) to execute their demands,” reads the synopsis. Rhys (The Queen’s Gambit’s Jacob Fortune-Lloyd), a cop and a recently relapsed gambling addict investigating the heist, must “keep his own money problems at bay while dealing with the secret agendas and competing interests at the center of this far-reaching crime.”

The series hails from crime novelist S.A. Nikias, who penned the script in their TV writing debut. Sam Miller (I May Destroy You, Black Mirror), meanwhile, will executive-produce and direct the first three episodes.

No word yet on a release date for the upcoming series, or Turner’s other new show, The CW’s Joan.
