"SPIES OF WARSAW" STARRING DAVID TENNANT AND JANET MONTGOMERY PREMIERES APRIL 3 ON BBC AMERICA

"Atmospheric and true to Furst's original tales, Spies of Warsaw is a pleasingly retro tale rich with intrigue." - British GQ

Adapted by renowned Emmy(R)-winning writing team Dick Clement (Across the Universe, Tracey Takes On...) and Ian La Frenais (Across the Universe, Tracey Takes On...) and executive produced by Richard Fell (Outcasts), Spies of Warsaw is based on New York Times Bestselling author Alan Furst's acclaimed novel. David Tennant (Broadchurch, Doctor Who, Fright Night, Hamlet) and Janet Montgomery (Made in Jersey, Black Swan, Entourage) star in the thrilling spy story set in Poland, Paris and London in the years leading up to the Second World War. Spies of Warsaw premieres over two nights - Wednesday, April 3, 9:00pm ET and Wednesday, April 10, 9:00pm ET - as part of BBC AMERICA's Dramaville programming block.

The drama finds French and German intelligence operatives locked in a life-and-death struggle. At the French embassy, the new military attaché, Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier (Tennant), a decorated 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.

Spies of Warsaw combines historical, intelligent narratives, interlaced with flawed, romantic and compelling characters. Spanning the decade from 1933 to 1943, as the Germans slowly consolidate their political stranglehold on Europe, Furst's stories are portraits of subjugated peoples who try to resist the suffocating inevitability of Hitler's regime. They show the potency and importance of espionage and pure intelligence in the run up to the war.

Executive produced by Richard Fell for Fresh Pictures and Chris Aird for the BBC, Spies of Warsaw is co-produced by Apple Film for TV Poland and co-produced by BBC AMERICA in association with ARTE FRANCE and BBC Worldwide.

Spies of Warsaw is the latest co-production to join BBC AMERICA's stable of compelling programming including the award-winning Dramaville series Luther, The Hour, new co-production dramas Ripper Street, Fleming (W/T), Musketeers, upcoming David Tennant drama Broadchurch and original dramas COPPER and Orphan Black.

Spies of Warsaw will be available on Blu-Ray with bonus UltraViolet copy, and DVD on April 16, 2013.
