“The Night Manager” will be co-produced by AMC with The Ink Factory and BBC One. Executive producers are Stephen Cornwell and Simon Cornwell for The Ink Factory, Stephen Garrett, David Farr, and Polly Hill for the BBC.

The series was commissioned for BBC One by Charlotte Moore and Ben Stephenson, and for AMC by Joel Stillerman and Kristin Jones. It is adapted by “Hanna” writer David Farr. Rob Bullock will produce for The Ink Factory.

The series will premiere in 2016.
