"The Night Manager" is a TV miniseries on AMC that is adapted from John le Carré's novel "The Night Manager." Multiple Emmy nominee Hugh Laurie ("House") and Tom Hiddleston ("The Avengers," "War Horse," "Midnight in Paris") star.

A contemporary interpretation of le Carré's espionage drama — and the first television adaptation of a le Carré novel in more than 20 years — "The Night Manager" miniseries 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 his beautiful girlfriend Jed (Elizabeth Debicki). In his quest to do the right thing, Pine must first become a criminal himself.

The cast also includes David Harewood ("Homeland"), Neil Morrissey ("Line of Duty"), Katherine Kelly ("Mr. Selfridge") and Tobias Menzies ("The Honorable Woman").

Published in 1993, "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.

"The Night Manager" is produced by The Ink Factory ("A Most Wanted Man"). Executive producers are Stephen Cornwell and Simon Cornwell for The Ink Factory, Stephen Garrett, David Farr, and Polly Hill for the BBC. The series was commissioned for BBC One by Charlotte Moore and Ben Stephenson, and Joel Stillerman, Marci Wiseman and Kristin Jones for AMC. The miniseries is adapted by David Farr ("Hanna," "Spooks") from John le Carré's original novel. Rob Bullock ("The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher," "Chasing Shadows") produces for The Ink Factory. Susanne Bier, who won an Academy Award for "In a Better World," directs.
