The Little Drummer Girl — Behind-the-Scenes Preview


added: Fri, Oct 26th '18

Check out an exciting new behind-the-scenes preview for "The Little Drummer Girl," AMC and BBC's upcoming miniseries based on John le Carre's acclaimed 1983 spy novel of the same name.

Starring Florence Pugh (Outlaw King), Michael Shannon (The Shape of Water), and Alexander Skarsgard (Big Little Lies), the six-hour espionage thriller comes from the producers of the Emmy-winning British miniseries "The Night Manager" and was directed by critically acclaimed South Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, The Handmaiden).

Set against the backdrop of the Israel/Palestinian conflict during the 1970s, the drama follows two Israeli intelligence officers -- Kurtz (Shannon) and Becker (Skarsgard) -- as they recruit a young gifted British actress, named "Charlie" (Pugh), for a secret spy mission in Europe. But when Charlie goes undercover to infiltrate a Palestinian terrorist network, she finds herself becoming radicalized to the point where she isn't sure what side she's on, or what side she wants to fight for anymore.

"The Little Drummer Girl" is scheduled to air in the U.S. in November. It will air over three consecutive nights on AMC, within three two-hour installments -- beginning Monday, November 19th through Wednesday November 21st.

Brilliant young actress Charlie (Florence Pugh) strikes up an acquaintance with an intriguing stranger while on holiday in Greece, but it rapidly becomes apparent that his intentions are far from romantic. The man is Becker (Alexander Skarsgard), an Israeli intelligence officer, who entangles her in a complex and high stakes plot which unfolds as she takes on the role of a lifetime in the "theatre of the real".

Set in the late 1970s, yet sharply contemporary, "The Little Drummer Girl" weaves a dynamic and exciting story of espionage and international intrigue; of love and betrayal.
