Here’s the first trailer for The Night Manager, a six-part mini-series produced alongside BBC One and The Ink Factory and having its premiere on April 19 at 10 PM ET/PT. An update of John le Carré’s spies-and-gangsters drama with a screenplay by e.p. David Farr and helmed by e.p. and Oscar winner Susanne Bier (In A Better World), it promises to bring together “love, loss and revenge in a complex story of modern criminality,” per AMC. 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 neutralize his alliance between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade. To get inside Roper’s 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). Executive producers include Simon Cornwell, Stephen Cornwell, Stephen Garrett and John Le Carré.
