BBC One Sets Premiere Date For ‘The Little Drummer Girl’

BBC One’s John le Carré adaptation The Little Drummer Girl will premiere on Sunday October 28th at 9pm, it has been announced.

The Little Drummer Girl is set in the 1970s and follows Charlie, a young, fiery but unfulfilled British actress and idealist whose resolve is tested after she meets the mysterious Becker, while on holiday in Greece. It quickly becomes apparent that his intentions are not what they seem, and their encounter entangles her in a complex plot devised by the spy mastermind Kurtz.

Charlie takes on the role of a lifetime as a double agent in the ‘theatre of the real’. But despite her natural mastery of the task at hand, she finds herself inexorably drawn into a dangerous world of duplicity and compromised humanity. The six episode mini-series, which is based on the John le Carré novel of the same name, is produced by The Ink Factory and stars Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Shannon, Florence Pugh, Michael Moshonov, Charif Ghattas, Amir Khoury, Katharina Schüttler, Simona Brown, Max Irons and Charles Dance. It was adapted for the screen by Mike Lesslie and Claire Wilson, and directed by Park Chan-wook.
