BBC America's new spy series...
Here is a new promo from BBC America for Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond. The four-part series stars Dominic Cooper as Ian Fleming, the man who created James Bond, and premieres on January 29th at 10:00 PM ET/PT.
Set at the outbreak of WWII, mischievous playboy Ian Fleming is untroubled by the specter of impending war – chasing women, collecting rare books and living off his family fortune. Forever in the shadow of his brother Peter (Rupert Evans), and an eternal disappointment to his formidable mother Eve (Lesley Manville), Fleming dreams of becoming the ‘ultimate' man – a hero, a lover, a brute and the one who always gets the girl. He is finally given some direction in his life when he's recruited by the Director of Naval Intelligence, Admiral John Godfrey (Samuel West), to help in the effort against the Nazis. Suddenly, Fleming finds his chance to shine and prove his worth.
At first, Fleming's inclined to treat his new job in Naval Intelligence as a big adventure. But as he encounters the shocking consequences and challenges of war, he learns where his talents lie. With the somewhat skeptical support of tough-cookie Lieutenant Monday (Anna Chancellor), Fleming's ability to spin a tale makes him a perfect fit for espionage and quickly takes him from pushing paper to stealing secrets.
