Tom Hiddleston is finally taking the plunge of returning to TV. According to new reports, Hiddleston is joining Hugh Laurie in a limited series called “The Night Manager” that will air on AMC.
This news comes not long after AMC bought into BBC America for $200 million. “Night Manager,” an adaptation of John le Carre’s 1993 book of the same name, will be a co-production between AMC, BBC One and Ink Factory, and will also air on BBC.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, AMC plans to air the limited series in six or eight episodes. The project was picked up straight to series.
Though Hiddleston is best known in the States for his role as Loki in the Marvel movies, he has an established history on television. In the U.K., he appeared on series like “Wallander,” “Suburban Shootout” and “Cranford,” though all for limited arcs. This will be Hiddleston’s first role in a live-action American TV show.
