BBC AMERICA TO CO-PRODUCE "THE SPIES OF WARSAW" FOR DRAMAVILLE

David Tennant and Janet Montgomery star in new mini-series based on Alan Furst's acclaimed spy novel

New York - Wednesday, April 11, 2012 - BBC AMERICA is co-producing a new mini-series for Dramaville based on Alan Furst's acclaimed novel, The Spies of Warsaw, adapted by renowned Emmy(R)-winning writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais. David Tennant (Doctor Who, Fright Night, Hamlet, Casanova) and Janet Montgomery (Black Swan, Entourage) will star in the thrilling spy story set in Poland, Paris, London and Berlin in the years leading up to the Second World War.

The production begins shooting next month on location in Poland.

In the mini-series, French and German intelligence operatives are locked in a life-and-death struggle in the espionage arena. At the French embassy, the new military attaché, Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier (Tennant), a decorated war hero of the 1914 war, is drawn into a world of abduction, betrayal and intrigue in the diplomatic salons and back alleys of Warsaw. At the same time, the handsome aristocrat finds himself in a passionate love affair with Anna (Montgomery), a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations. Their complicated love affair intensifies as German tanks drive through the Black Forest. The Spies of Warsaw combines historical, intelligent narratives, interlaced with flawed, romantic and compelling characters.

The cast includes Anton Lesser (Dramaville's The Hour) as Doctor Lapp, Burn Gorman (The Dark Knight Rises) as Jourdain, Richard Lintern (Dramaville's White Heat) as Colonel Lessard, Dan Fredenburgh (The Bourne Ultimatum) as Armand, Ludger Pistor (Casino Royale) as Edvard Uhl, Ann Eleonora Jorgensen (The Killing) as Olga Musser, Jan Pohl (Captain America: The First Avenger) as Zoller, Richard Teverson (Upstairs Downstairs) as Roddy Fitzware, Nicholas Blane (The Tudors) as Papa Heininger, Adam Godley (Charlie And The Chocolate Factory) as Halbach, Kenneth Collard (Albert Nobbs) as Johannes Elter, Tuppence Middleton (New Tricks) as Gabrielle, Rad Kaim (Harry Brown) as August Voss, Piotr Baumann (The Street) as Maxim Mostov, Ellie Haddington (Creation) as Mme Dupin, Viktor Rosen (Gladiator) as Alan Corduner, Linda Bassett (The Hours) as Malka Rosen, Tusse Silberg (Drop The Dead Donkey) as Helena and Julian Harries (EastEnders) as Duff Cooper.

The Spies of Warsaw is the latest title to join BBC AMERICA's Dramaville, the home of groundbreaking British drama. Last month, the channel announced a new co-production Ripper Street set for the fall and acquisitions White Heat and Inside Men premiering in May and June. The Dramaville slate also includes the Golden Globe(R)-winning mini-series Luther and Golden Globe(R)-nominated mini-series The Hour.
