The first TV adaptation of a John le Carré thriller in more than 20 years is going to be The Night Manager, a six-part mini-series produced by AMC, BBC One, and the Ink Factory starring Tom Hiddleston as a sexy British spy. Hiddleston plays Jonathan Pine, a British soldier recruited to infiltrate an inner circle of international businessmen led by Richard Onslow Roper, played by Hugh Laurie. He’ll be tested along the way by Roper’s chief of staff, Major Corkoran (Tom Hollander), and Roper’s girlfriend, Jed (Elizabeth Debicki). And apparently, in order to do good things, he must also do bad things. Very, very bad things.
Here’s the BBC One cut of the trailer released earlier this year:
The Night Manager premieres April 19.
