AMC has new espionage drama/thriller series called The Little Drummer Girl that will be airing on TV November 19th. This series is a mini-series that has about six episodes. This mini-series focuses on a group of Israeli agents trying to stop a Palestinian terrorist from setting off any more bombs. The Palestinian had already caused a bomb to explode in the house of an Israeli in West Germany. In order to prevent more of these attacks, the Israeli agents hire a British actress to infiltrate the Palestinian network and be accepted as one of their own.
The series is set in the late 70s and the actress going undercover is a woman named Charlie. Charlie faces struggles when she not only becomes an agent but a double agent at that. This causes Charlie to feel uncertain where her true loyalty lies. This show stars Florence Pugh, Alexander Skarsgard, and Michael Shannon. This series is based off a John le Carre book whom also wrote the famous book to mini-series The Night Manager that starred Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie.
