John le Carré’s novel, The Night Manager, was a runaway ratings winner from the start. It was the first television adaptation of one of his novels in 20 years and brought together love, loss and revenge in a gripping story of modern criminality.
Nominated for 12 Primetime Emmys, it has been one of the most talked about series of the year and close to 10m viewers watched the finale on the BBC. Press reaction was overwhelmingly positive in both broadsheets and tabloids, and viewers were glued to their seats on Sunday nights.
This session, richly illustrated with clips, will tell the inside story of how the book was transformed into the series that had the nation talking.
The panel, chaired by Heat magazine's Boyd Hilton, will include director Susanne Bier, who won an Emmy for the show, writer David Farr, and Simon Cornwell, Executive Producer and Co-CEO, The Ink Factory, with a special guest still to be announced.
