After AMC struck it big with the 2016 miniseries The Night Manager, based on the John le Carré novel of the same name, it was only a matter of time before the TV station tried their hand at another le Carré novel. Bringing together much of the creative team behind that hit miniseries (That will now be a TV series as it has been renewed for a season 2), next up will be a six-part event series based on the 1983 le Carré novel The Little Drummer Girl. The series will be a co-production of BBC, AMC, and The Ink Factory. It will also have the distinction of being the TV debut of acclaimed Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook, known for films like Oldboy and Stoker, who will direct all six episodes.
The story is set in the late 1970’s, following fiery actress and idealist Charlie (Played by Florence Pugh) whose resolve is tested after she meets the mysterious Becker (Played by Alexander Skarsgård) while on holiday in Greece. When it becomes apparent that his intentions are not what they seem, Charlie becomes entangled in a complex plot devised by the spy mastermind Kurtz (Played by Michael Shannon). Soon, Charlie finds herself taking on the role of a double agent.
No official premiere date has been set for the miniseries but today we have the first look photos of it which you can check out below:
