Bond creator biopic Fleming will have an early digital release in the UK before its broadcast on Sky Atlantic in February 2014.
The drama, starring Dominic Cooper as the famous author, will start on Wednesday 12th February at 9pm on Sky Atlantic HD and will be available to download on Sky Go from 5th February at the same time.
Cooper plays Ian Fleming in a four-part dramatisation of his life. There’s no questioning the iconic status of the man they call 007, and Fleming explores how some of the real-life exploits of Ian Fleming became the inspiration for one of the most enduring and successful characters ever.
Untroubled by the spectre of impending war, roguish playboy Ian Fleming chases women, collects rare books and lives off the family fortune. Forever in the shadow of his brother Peter (Rupert Evans) and an eternal disappointment to his formidable mother Eve (Lesley Manville), Ian is finally given some direction in his life when he’s recruited by Admiral John Godfrey (Samuel West) to help in the effort against the Nazis. With the somewhat sceptical support of tough-cookie Second Officer Monday (Anna Chancellor), Ian’s extraordinary imagination and ability to spin a yarn makes him a perfect fit for espionage.
In tandem, the stakes increase as Ian’s chance encounter with the captivating Lady Ann O’Neill (Lara Pulver) becomes a passionate affair that shapes both their lives. Directed by Mat Whitecross (Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll and the BAFTA®-nominated Road to Guantanamo) and written by John Brownlow and Don Macpherson, Fleming captures both the opulence of high society London and the suspense and intrigue behind enemy lines.
While Bond fans will spot many a nod to the legendary agent, the series is ultimately a gripping account of a playboy spy and the woman who won his heart.
Fleming will be available to watch live and on-demand on NOW TV following its Sky Atlantic broadcast on Wednesday 12th February. Existing Sky customers will be able to download the show on-demand using Sky Go (compatible with mobile devices and consoles) at no extra cost from Wednesday 5th February.
A NOW TV Entertainment Pass costs £7.99 a month with no minimum contract and allows you to stream all of Sky’s brand channels both on-demand and live, alongside channels such as FOX UK and MTV.
