If you love stars like Hugh Laurie (House) and Tom Hiddleston (Thor, The Avengers), bound up in taut spy book adaptations, then welcome to your new favourite past time: miniseries Night Manager.

The show, which also features Olivia Colman and Elizabeth Decki, has been adapted from a 1993 book of the same name by the one and only John le Carré.

Its first of six episodes will show on AMC on April 19. The story sees a former British soldier (Hiddleston) recruited by US intelligence to win the trust of arms dealer (Laurie).

In the pilot you can expect gripping performances by the stellar line-up of actors; Cairo shot in sleek style like the James Bond films; and scenes abuzz with the tension of nail-biting Arab Spring.

In the trailer Laurie growls to Hiddleston:

You saved my boy. Welcome to the family... You step out of line, we'll make you howl for your mother

If you somehow missed his numerous successes in the cinema, Carré is an espionage writer of near-mythical status. He penned the inspiration for scintillating movies like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) and The Constant Gardener (2005).
