Premieres Exclusively in the US on April 15
NEW YORK – April 6, 2021 – AMC+ has released the trailer for its newest original series, Spy City, premiering exclusively in the US on Thursday, April 15. The six-part series stars Dominic Cooper with new episodes premiering weekly on the service each Thursday.
The espionage Cold War series follows the awful dilemma faced by the English spy Fielding Scott (Dominic Cooper, Preacher, Captain America: The First Avenger), as he is sent to Berlin in 1961 on a mission to find out the source of the leak of vital security information. The Russians, it seems, know everything. Someone in Berlin is giving away all the secrets of the Western – American, British, and French – powers. Fielding has been given possibly the hardest job in the world: clean up Berlin. He must find out who the traitor is and expose, arrest, or eliminate that person.
Along with Cooper, Spy City stars Romane Portail (Sense8), Leonie Benesch (The Crown) and Johanna Wokalek (Tatort).
Created and written by novelist and screenwriter William Boyd (Restless, Chaplin) and directed and photographed by German Portuguese filmmaker Miguel Alexandre (The Inspector and the Sea), Spy City is a ODEON FICTION production in co-production with ZDF, SEVEN STORIES and WILMA FILM and in association with MAGENTA TV. The series was co-financed and executive produced by Miramax, and distributed globally through ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group funded by FFF BAYERN, NORDMEDIA, GERMAN MOTION PICTURE FUND and CZECH FILM FUND.
