The Night Manager
Industry Media acted for The Ink Factory in connection with the production financing of the highly anticipated new drama series “The Night Manager” based on the novel by John le Carré.
Filming is currently underway in Mallorca with lead cast Hugh Laurie, Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman and Tom Hollander. The director is Susanne Bier.
“The Night Manager” follows former British soldier Jonathan Pine (Hiddleston) who is recruited by British spy Burr (Colman) to navigate the shadowy recesses of Whitehall and Washington where an unholy alliance operates between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade.
To infiltrate the inner circle of lethal arms dealer Richard Onslow Roper (Laurie), which includes girlfriend Jed (Debicki) and an associate named Corcoran (Hollander), Pine must himself become a criminal.
The television series is being produced by The Ink Factory (“A Most Wanted Man”) for broadcast by BBC One and AMC in 2016. Simon Cornwell and Stephen Cornwell are Executive Producers for the Ink Factory. It was adapted by David Farr.
Sara Curran, Craig Dickson and Huw Walters advised The Ink Factory on the production, distribution and financing arrangements for the miniseries.
