• Speaking with The New York Times about The Night Manager, Hugh Laurie says, “I actually tried to option the novel when it came out. I was a huge admirer of le Carré. I thought to myself: This has got to be on the screen. I can see every frame of this; I can hear it and taste it.”
• Interview has Benedict Cumberbatch speak with Tom Hiddleston, who says of The Night Manager, “I just loved the experience of making it. It always felt as though we were making a six-hour feature. We storyboarded it and scheduled it as one 360-page screenplay, with one director.”
• Profiling Elizabeth Debicki, The Guardian says The Night Manager “became that show – the one you’d better watch, as a matter of national imperative, in order not to be left out of conversations the whole time.”
• New York Post extols limited series like The Night Manager, noting they “offered their casts a chance to play against type, enriching the viewing experience. House star Hugh Laurie portrayed a villain to great effect on The Night Manager.”
• According to Screen Daily, the team behind The Night Manager will be honored with a 2016 UK Production Guild Award.
• Exstreamist reports that The Night Manager will be available on Amazon Prime in November.
