Hugh Laurie, Tom Hiddleston Play Spy Games in AMC's Night Manager Trailer

“He’s the worst man in the world.”

That’s a pretty damning description of arms dealer Richard Onslow Roper (House‘s Hugh Laurie) in AMC’s upcoming six-part miniseries The Night Manager — and if it’s true, then former British soldier Jonathan Pine (Thor‘s Tom Hiddleston) had better tread carefully as he infiltrates Roper’s operations.

The first trailer for the contemporary update on John le Carré’s novel is a fast-paced collection of exotic locations, fiery explosions, Laurie’s unbridled menace and undercover shenanigans. Also, there’s Hiddleston in a Henley.

The Night Manager, premiering on Tuesday, April 19 at 10/9c, also stars Olivia Colman (Broadchurch), Tobias Menzies (Outlander), David Harewood (Supergirl) and Russell Tovey (Looking).

      My most anticipated show of 2016. I’d watch for Laurie in a heart beat, but not mentioned by TVL is the fact this is a co-production with the BBC; it’s full of English and US actors with several other very well known British stars including Tom Hollander and Neil Morrissey. This is AMC upping their game considerably by using their BBC America relationships to maximum effect.

    I love this whole miniseries trend. What a great idea to do a good piece of work in a set amount of time with a beginning, middle and end. Of course I’ll watch this.
