This September, IGN is featuring the best TV coming your way in the 2018-2019 season. Today we’re spotlighting The Little Drummer Girl, an upcoming AMC limited series based on the 1983 spy thriller from novelist John le Carré – the second AMC adaptation of the author’s work, following 2016’s The Night Manager. The Little Drummer Girl stars Florence Pugh as Charlie, a British actress who falls in love with a man named Becker (Alexander Skarsgård), only to discover she’s actually being recruited into a complex plot to hunt down a Palestinian terrorist. Little Drummer Girl is also notable for serving as the TV directorial debut for acclaimed Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook. We were able to talk with showrunners Simon and Stephen Cornwell about the new series, why it’s as much a love story as a thriller, and why Park was so eager to participate in the show. Scroll down to find out what they had to say and to see exclusive photos from the upcoming series.
