IMG, Ink Factory Set International Sales For ‘The Night Manager’

IMG and Ink Factory have set deals in Germany, Italy, Australia and other territories for the upcoming BBC/AMC miniseries “The Night Manager,” starring Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston.

The adaptation of the 1993 John le Carre novel is set for a global rollout early next year. The series revolves around a former British soldier who gets wrapped up in the international arms trade. Ink Factory is producing the six-part drama.

WME connected Ink Factory with its IMG international sales arm to complete worldwide sales of the project. The sales effort on behalf of the British indie is another sign of IMG expanding its operations beyond its core talent representation and event management businesses. The international sales are crucial to financing the high-end production, written by David Farr and directed by Susanne Bier. Olivia Colman, Tom Hollander, David Harewood and Elizabeth Debicki also star.

“With the support and vision of the BBC and AMC, along with WME and IMG and the commitment of great broadcasters around the world, we’ve been able to deliver tremendous scale in the production,” said Ink Factory co-founder Simon Cornwell.

“Night Manager” is set to air across Tele-Munchen channels in German-speaking territories, Sky Italia, C More and TV4 in Nordic regions, DR in Denmark, BBC First and SBS in Australia and AMC Global channels in most other major markets in Eastern Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.

IMG also set a deal with Sony Pictures to handle North American home video rights.
