FIRST LOOK The Little Drummer Girl

Today the BBC and AMC have released first look images of their new six-part le Carré adaptation, The Little Drummer Girl starring Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Shannon and Florence Pugh.


The six-part mini-series based on John le Carré’s best-selling literary masterpiece of the same name has been adapted by Mike Lesslie (Macbeth) and Claire Wilson (Partners in Crime).


Set in the late 1970s, The Little Drummer Girl weaves a dynamic and exciting story of espionage and international intrigue; of love and betrayal. In this high-stakes drama, set against the background of rising tensions in the Middle East, a young, brilliant actress Charlie prepares for her ultimate role in ‘the theatre of the real’.



She 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, an Israeli intelligence officer, who entangles her in a complex and high stakes plot orchestrated by Spymaster, Kurtz. Skarsgård plays Becker, Shannon will take on the role of Kurtz and Pugh will play Charlie.


The international thriller which will air on BBC One in the UK marks the television debut of visionary film maker Park Chan-wook (Old Boy, The Handmaiden, Stoker) who will helm all six hours bringing his epic cinematic sensibility to the small screen.


The Little Drummer Girl airs this autumn on BBC One
