A six-part adaptation of John le Carré’s best-selling literary masterpiece directed by visionary filmmaker Park Chan-wook (Old Boy, The Handmaiden, Stoker) who will mark his television debut. BAFTA nominee Florence Pugh (Lady Macbeth) stars as the lead, Charlie, with Emmy and Golden Globe winner Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies) in the role of Becker and two-time Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon (The Shape of Water, Nocturnal Animals) as Kurtz.
Brilliant young actress Charlie (Pugh) 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 (Skarsgård), an Israeli intelligence officer, who entangles her in a complex and high stakes plot orchestrated by Spymaster, Kurtz (Shannon). Set in the late 1970s yet sharply contemporary, ‘The Little Drummer Girl’ weaves a dynamic and exciting story of espionage and international intrigue; of love and betrayal.
