Next month sees AMC once again bringing one of John le Carré‘s spy thrillers to life on the small screen. After achieving much success with adapting The Night Manager, AMC shifts its attention over to The Little Drummer Girl.
Airing over the course of three nights and featuring a stellar cast, The Little Drummer Girl finds an actress caught up in high-stakes espionage.
The official synopsis below:
“The Little Drummer Girl weaves an explosive story of espionage and international intrigue; of love and betrayal. Brilliant young actress Charlie (Pugh) strikes up an acquaintance with an intriguing stranger while on vacation in Greece, but it rapidly becomes apparent that his intentions are far from romantic. The man is Becker (Skarsgård), an Israeli intelligence officer, who entangles her in a complex and high stakes plot orchestrated by Spymaster, Kurtz (Shannon).”
One of the main reasons I’m excited for the series is watching Park Chan-wook’s foray into television. His films like Oldboy and The Handmaiden are clear examples the director can craft images that really stick with you. I expect him to bring that same visual flair to The Little Drummer Girl.
Check out the first trailer below and look for it on AMC when it premieres Nov. 19.
