Tennant fronts BBC America miniseries

Cabler will co-produce 'Spies of Warsaw'

Former “Doctor Who” star David Tennant has taken a leading role in miniseries “The Spies of Warsaw,” which BBC America will co-produce and air.

Janet Montgomery (“Entourage”) will co-star in the adaptation of the Alan Furst novel, set in the years leading up to World War II, by scribes Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais.

Production on the four episodes begins in May in Poland. BBC America is co-producing with Apple Film for TV Poland in association with Arte France and BBC Worldwide. Richard Fell and Jamie Laurenson are exec producing.

Tennant will play a decorated French war hero who is caught up in a world of intrigue in Warsaw. Montgomery will be a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations who finds herself in an affair with Tennant’s character.

The news follows last month’s announcement of BBC America co-production “Ripper Street,” which is targeted for a fall premiere.
