The BBC has released the first look trailer at the upcoming TV series The Little Drummer Girl, which is coming to screens in November following a debut at this month’s BFI London Film Festival. Michael Shannon, Alexander Skarsgard and Florence Pugh lead the cast. Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, The Handmaiden) directs the three two-hour episodes, which are from the same team as The Night Manager. The series is based on the book by John le Carre’s best-selling spy novel of the same name.
Here’s the official synopsis from the source material:
Charlie, a brilliant and beautiful young English actress, is seduced by Israeli intelligence officer Joseph. But this duplicitous liaison will, in fact, lead her to her most dangerous role yet.
Forced to play decoy in a mission to ensnare an elusive Palestinian terrorist, Charlie must lead him into a delicate trap, at the risk of falling in it herself. . .
The Little Drummer Girl airs over consecutive nights from November 19th-21st.
