Amazon Prime Video has ordered a new heist thriller series titled Haven, starring Sophie Turner, best known for her roles in Game of Thrones and the X-Men film series. Turner will play Zara, an office worker at the pension fund investment company Lochmill Capital, who becomes entangled in a high-stakes heist orchestrated by violent thieves.

The series also stars Archie Madekwe as Luke, Zara’s best friend, and Jacob Fortune-Lloyd as DCI Rhys, a detective with a recently relapsed gambling problem who is investigating the heist.

Haven marks the screenwriting debut of S.A. Nikias, author of the acclaimed crime novel series The City Blues (written under the pseudonym Ray Celestin). Sam Miller, known for directing I May Destroy You and Luther, will direct the first three episodes and serve as an executive producer.

Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon MGM Studios, expressed his enthusiasm for the series: “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. 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.”

While an exact release date has not been announced, filming for Haven is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2024, with the series set to premiere on Prime Video in over 240 countries and territories worldwide in 2025.
