AMC has set a November 19th-21st air date for the three-night, six-part television event series “The Little Drummer Girl” based on the novel by John le Carre. The series will air as three two-hour episodes kicking off nightly from 9pm across those three days.
Set in the late 1970s, the story follows Charlie (Florence Pugh), a fiery actress and idealist whose resolve is tested after she meets the mysterious Becker (Alexander Skarsgard) while on holiday in Greece.
It becomes apparent that his intentions are not what they seem, and she is now entangled in a complex plot devised by the spy mastermind Kurtz (Michael Shannon). Charlie takes on the role of a lifetime as a double agent.
The project marks the return of much of the team behind 2016’s acclaimed LeCarre adaptation “The Night Manager,” the project a co-production of BBC, AMC and The Ink Factory. One key change is the director, the entire series is helmed by acclaimed Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook (“Oldboy,” “Stoker”).
