A contemporary interpretation of John le Carré's espionage drama - and the first television adaptation of a le Carré novel in more than 20 years - "The Night Manager" will bring together love, loss and revenge in a complex story of modern criminality. 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. Executive producers include Simon Cornwell, Stephen Cornwell, Stephen Garrett and John Le Carré, Writer David Farr also serves as an executive producer as does Academy Award(R) winner Susanne Bier, who served as director.
The project was recently honored with a total of 12 Emmy nominations including Outstanding Limited Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series (Hiddleston); Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series (Laurie); Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series (Colman) as well as Outstanding Writing (Farr) and Outstanding Directing (Bier) for a Limited Series.
The Night Manager is one of le Carré's most beloved and critically acclaimed books. A fusion of spy story and tale of organized crime, the novel was a best-seller in the United States and the UK, translated into over 20 languages and selling over a million copies in North America alone.
