New York – March XX – BBC Home Entertainment brings the thrilling drama Spies of Warsaw to Blu-ray (with Ultraviolet copy) and DVD on April 16, 2013. The BBC AMERICA miniseries, based on The New York Times Bestselling author Alan Furst’s acclaimed novel, finds French and German intelligence operatives locked in a life-and-death struggle in the years leading up to the Second World War. Adapted by the Emmy®-winning writing team of Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, this beautifully portrayed tale of espionage and pure intelligence stars David Tennant (Broadchurch, Doctor Who, Fright Night) and Janet Montgomery (Black Swan, Entourage).
At the French embassy in Warsaw, the new military attaché, Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier (Tennant), a decorated hero of the 1914 war, is drawn into a world of abduction, betrayal and intrigue in the diplomatic salons and back alleys of the city. At the same time, the handsome aristocrat finds himself in a passionate love affair with Anna (Montgomery), a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations. Risking his life, Mercier works in the shadows amid a remarkable cast of characters, some known to him as spies, some never to be revealed. It is a city where people drink and fight and spy and love, because no one knows what tomorrow will bring.
Spies of Warsaw premieres on BBC AMERICA’s Dramaville programming block on April 3, 2013.
