Fleming - First Teaser Promo

Captain America: The First Avenger and Mamma Mia star Dominic Cooper is set to take the lead role in Fleming, a brand new four-part drama about the life of celebrated James Bond creator, Ian Fleming, coming soon to Sky Atlantic HD.

Other talent now confirmed to star in the drama include Lara Pulver, Annabelle Wallis, Lesley Manville, Anna Chancellor, Samuel West and Rupert Evans.

Set against the permissive society of war-torn London, where the martinis were always flowing and beds always being swapped, the series explores the early life of the charming, enigmatic 007 author.

The outbreak of World War II saw the young Fleming working as an unsuccessful stockbroker, with a failed army career behind him and living off his rich family while indulging in the very Bond-esque passions of womanising, alcohol and, erm, erotic literature.

It wasn’t until Fleming was forced to join the Naval Intelligence that he found his true calling. Using his mischievous sense of humour, sharp charm and vivid imagination, Fleming was responsible for some of the most outrageously dangerous counter intelligence mission against the Nazis – honing his inspiration for Bond in the process.

About landing the role, Dominic Cooper said, ‘Stepping into the shoes of the spy who not only created the enigmatic character of 007, but who fantasised about being him, has to be every actor's dream. I am honoured.’

Laura Pulver (Sherlock, Da Vinci's Demons, Spooks) will star as Ann O'Neill, the elegant Baroness whose wartime meeting with Ian Fleming was to alter the course of the rest of both of their lives. Ann is not the only woman in Fleming's life, however, and we meet Muriel (Annabelle Wallis, Pan Am, The Tudors), who in contrast to Ann is an innocent tomboy who proves irresistible to the young Fleming.

The drama joins a long list of original UK drama airing on Sky Atlantic HD that began with the critically acclaimed Hit & Miss, the recent detective thriller Falcón, and The Tunnel, coming soon.

We’ll start airing out our tuxes and preparing the Martinis now, shall we?
