The Lazarus Project: First look at time-jumping thriller

A man finds himself re-living the same day in new series The Lazarus Project, heading our way from Sky this April…

The Lazarus Project

A secret organization is able to turn back time when there’s an extinction threat in The Lazarus Project, a new eight-part action thriller from acclaimed writer Joe Barton (Giri/Haji).

Check out the trailer…

The Lazarus Project follows George who wakes up one day and finds himself reliving a day from months ago. He thinks he’s lost his mind. All of his recent milestones have been undone, including his success at work and his marriage to the love of his life Sarah. Worst of all, he seems to be the only one who has noticed what’s happened.

That is, until he meets Archie, who recruits George for the Lazarus Project – a secret organisation that has harnessed the ability to turn back time every time the world is at threat of extinction. Like George, those who work at Lazarus are the few people on earth with the ability to remember the events that are undone when time goes back. Alongside colleagues Archie, standoffish Shiv (Dharmalingam), and their steely leader Wes (QuentinGeorge works to prevent global catastrophe – including trying to track down the formidable Rebrov (Burke,), a wanted criminal intent on detonating a nuclear warhead and destroying the world.

Then a freak accident harms someone close to George. Lazarus won’t let him turn back time to undo it – unless there is the threat of global extinction. Now George must choose to stay loyal or go rogue, as he is faced with the question: if you had the power to rewrite your past, what would you sacrifice to do it…?

The Lazarus Project is directed by Marco Kreuzpaintner and stars Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You), Anjli Mohindra (Vigil), Tom Burke (The Show), Caroline Quentin (Bridgerton), Rudi Dharmalingam (Wakefield) and Charly Clive (Pure).

The Lazarus Project will air on Sky Max and NOW on 16 June, 2022.
