An Expatriated Spade

At last there’s confirmation of a TV project we mentioned here in December. This item comes from In Reference to Murder:
Clive Owen is set to star in Monsieur Spade, a one-hour drama series from Scott Frank (The Queen's Gambit) and Tom Fontana (City on a Hill). The predominantly French language series centers around writer Dashiell Hammett’s great detective, Sam Spade (Owen), who has been quietly living out his golden years in the small town of Bozuls in the South of France. It’s 1963, the Algerian War has just ended, and in a very short time, so, too, will Spade’s tranquility.
A bit more information is available from Deadline.
