The Book Bond blog reminds me that tonight will bring the much-anticipated premiere of Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond, a four-part mini-series on BBC America. This stylish presentation finds Dominic Cooper playing Ian Fleming, the British naval intelligence officer who later created fictional super-spy James Bond. Also prominent among the program’s cast is Lara Pulver, who you will undoubtedly remember for her sexy portrayal of Irene Adler in the 2012 Sherlock episode “A Scandal in Belgravia.” There’s more information about this mini-series here and here. And you can treat yourself to a video preview of Fleming here.
Tonight’s one-hour episode is supposed to begin at 10 p.m. ET/PT on BBC America, with additional installments set to run for the next three weeks. However, a quick check of my local (Seattle) TV schedule reveals two showings of Fleming this evening, neither of which begins at 10. So be sure to look through your own local listings to confirm the start time before you plop down in front of the telly.
Rap Sheet readers in the UK can look forward to the Sky Atlantic premiere of Fleming on Wednesday, February 12.
