“The Little Drummer Girl” 
Premieres Monday, November 19 at 9 PM ET/PT on AMC
 
          Based on John le Carré’s best-selling literary masterpiece of the same name and directed by visionary filmmaker Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, The Handmaiden, Stoker), The Little Drummer Girl weaves a suspenseful and explosive story of espionage and high-stakes international intrigue.
 
          Set in the late 1970s, the pulsating thriller follows Charlie (BAFTA-nominate Florence Pugh), a fiery actress and idealist whose resolve is tested after she meets the mysterious Becker (Emmy® and Golden Globe®Award-winner Alexander Skarsgård) while on holiday in Greece.
 

         It quickly becomes apparent that his intentions are not what they seem, and her encounter with him entangles her in a complex plot devised by the spy mastermind Kurtz (twice Academy Award-nominated Michael Shannon). Charlie takes on the role of a lifetime as a double agent while remaining uncertain of her own loyalties.
