FYI: An Interesting Jane Austen connection between these 3 stars of The Night Manager: Tom Hiddleston played Mr. John Plumptre in Miss Austen Regrets, Hugh Laurie was Mr. Palmer in Sense and Sensibility 1995 film, and of course, Tom Hollander was Mr. Collins in Pride & Prejudice 2005 film.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Night Manager for more info.
Launching a new night for AMC originals is the six-part miniseries event “The Night Manager,” premiering on Tuesday, April 19th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. A contemporary interpretation of John le Carré’s espionage drama, 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 his beautiful girlfriend Jed (Elizabeth Debicki). In his quest to do the right thing, Pine must first become a criminal himself. Executive producers include John Le Carré, Simon Cornwell, Stephen Cornwell and Stephen Garrett. Writer David Farr also serves as an executive producer as does Academy Award® winner Susanne Bier, who served as director.
