Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Shooting began this week in Europe on The Little Drummer Girl miniseries.
The international thriller marks the television debut of filmmaker Park Chan-wook, who is directing all six hours of the project. Set in the 1970s, the John le Carre adaptation stars Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Shannon and Florence Pugh.
"Brilliant young actress Charlie strikes up an acquaintance with an intriguing stranger while on holiday in Greece, but it rapidly becomes apparent that his intentions are far from romantic," a synopsis said. "The man is Becker, an Israeli intelligence officer, who entangles her in a complex and high stakes plot orchestrated by Spymaster, Kurtz."
The miniseries will air on the BBC in the United Kingdom and on AMC in the United States.
