The child cast of “Game of Thrones” grew up in front of us, and now that the series is over, they’re all taking off into the wild blue yonder. In the case of Maisie Williams, who played Arya, that wild blue yonder is a miniseries called “Two Weeks to Live.”

The six-part comedy is being produced by European pay cabler Sky in England, but I’m betting it will end up on our screens at some point. It’s written by Gaby Hull, and it’s about a woman whose father died in mysterious circumstances when she was a little girl. Now, she’s trying to find out what happened, and in the process she winds up on the run from gangsters with a bag of stolen cash.

“Looking forward to getting into something new,” Williams said in a statement. “I think ‘Two Weeks to Live’ has really great potential and I want to make something incredible with this wonderful team!”
