A new trailer for Fleming: The Man Who Would be Bond is now available thanks to BBC America. The mini-series features Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) as Ian Fleming, the man who would become best known as the author behind the suave super-spy James Bond, but not before he’d have a few adventures of his own. While I don’t know for sure whether or not Fleming’s real-life exploits were anywhere near as explosive as this new trailer, the series certainly looks to be a fun watch.
Also starring Lara Pulver (True Blood, Sherlock), Annabelle Wallis (Hello Carter, The Tudors), Lesley Manville (Maleficent, Another Year), Anna Chancellor (The Hour, How I Live Now) and Samuel West (Van Helsing), the four-week event stars Wednesday, January 29th at 10pm/9C on BBC America. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.
