AMC is more than just Ad execs, zombies, drug dealers and shady lawyers. Now they’ve also got secret agents and British arms dealers. Now they’ve got a great looking new 6-part mini series from internationally renowned suspense writer John Le Carré and starring Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie.
We’ve actually got two vids for you. First there’s the one that AMC just released, and then there’s a longer trailer aimed at the international distribution for the new mini series.
The series follows former British soldier Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston) who is recruited by intelligence operative Angela Burr (Olivia Colman) to infiltrate the inner circle of international businessman Richard Onslow Roper (Hugh Laurie) and detonate the unholy alliance he has ministered between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade. To get to the heart of Roper’s vast empire, Pine must withstand the suspicious interrogations of his venal chief of staff Major Corkoran (Tom Hollander) and the allure of Roper’s beautiful girlfriend Jed (Elizabeth Debicki). In his quest to do the right thing, Pine must first become a criminal himself.
