David Tennant (Fright Night, Doctor Who, Hamlet, Casanova) and Janet Montgomery (Black Swan, Merlin) have been cast in Alan Furst’s celebrated novel, The Spies Of Warsaw, adapted by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais.

A thrilling spy story set in Poland, Paris, London & Berlin in the years leading up to the Second World War. French and German intelligence operatives are locked in a life-and-death struggle on the espionage battlefield.

At the French embassy, the new military attaché, Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier (Tennant), a decorated war hero of the 1914 war, is drawn into a world of abduction, betrayal and intrigue in the diplomatic salons and back alleys of Warsaw.

At the same time, the handsome aristocrat finds himself in a passionate love affair with Anna (Montgomery), a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations. Their complicated love affair intensifies as German tanks drive through the Black Forest.

Two 90-minute film adaptations of one of Furst’s most acclaimed novels will bring to BBC Four a combination of historically located, intelligent narratives, interlaced with flawed, romantic and utterly compelling characters.

Richard Klein, Controller of BBC Four, says: “Spies Of Warsaw is Alan Furst at his best - a tense, passionate and sexy love story set against the increasingly strident clang of coming war.

"I think David Tennant playing Mercier and Janet Montgomery as Anna is such an exciting way to explore Furst's hugely convincing central characters, and I am delighted that Ian and Dick have produced such an enthralling script.

"Spies Of Warsaw is an entertaining, thrilling and insightful drama with a very different take on the Second World War, seen through the eyes of characters who know from the start that they and their fellow countrymen will face the brunt of the horrors to come: this is top class drama, and perfect for BBC Four.”

Richard Fell, Executive Producer and Head of Drama, Fresh Pictures, adds: “We are thrilled and delighted that David and Janet are going to be in Spies Of Warsaw. They are both actors of such great range and quality they will light up the screen as the star crossed lovers Jean Francois and Anna. As Europe is dragged into the nightmare that will be the Second World War, their illicit love affair gets ever more complicated, and the chemistry between these two extraordinary actors becomes irresistible.”

Spanning the decade from 1933 to 1943, as the Germans slowly consolidate their political stranglehold on Europe, Furst’s stories are portraits of subjugated peoples who try to resist the suffocating inevitability of Hitler’s regime. They show the potency and importance of espionage and pure intelligence in the run up to the war.

Joining Tennant in the role of Mercier and Montgomery in the role of Anna is an impressive supporting cast including: Ludger Pistor (Casino Royale) as Edvard Uhl, Ann Eleonora Jørgensen (The Killing) as Olga Musser, Jan Pohl (Captain America: The First Avenger) as Zoller, Rad Kaim (Harry Brown) as August Voss, Piotr Baumann (The Street) as Maxim Mostov, Burn Gorman (The Dark Knight Rises) as Jourdain, Ellie Haddington (Creation) as Mme Dupin, Viktor Rosen (Gladiator) as Alan Corduner, Linda Bassett (The Hours) as Malka Rosen, Anton Lesser (The Hour) as Doctor Lapp, Richard Lintern (White Heat) as Colonel Lessard, Richard Teverson (Upstairs Downstairs) as Roddy Fitzware, Nicholas Blane (The Tudors) as Papa Heininger, Adam Godley (Charlie And The Chocolate Factory) as Halbach, Kenneth Collard (Albert Nobbs) as Johannes Elter, Dan Fredenburgh (The Bourne Ultimatum) as Armand, Tuppence Middleton (New Tricks) as Gabrielle, Tusse Silberg (Drop The Dead Donkey) as Helena and Julian Harries (EastEnders) as Duff Cooper.

Shooting of the drama will begin next month on location in Poland. Commissioned by Richard Klein, Controller, BBC Four and Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning.

This is a Fresh Pictures production, executive produced by Richard Fell for Fresh Pictures and Jamie Laurenson for the BBC, co-produced by Apple Film for TV Poland in association with ARTE FRANCE and BBC Worldwide.

Amazon.com, Inc. today announced that 16 of the top 100 best-selling paid Kindle books in March are exclusive to the Kindle Store and available for Prime members with a Kindle to borrow for free through the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. These 16 books, which include only paid units and do not take into consideration borrowed or free units, include Kindle Singles “An Unexpected Twist” by Andy Borowitz and “Bearded Lady” by Mara Altman, “Easily Amused” by Karen McQuestion, books 1-3 in Michael Wallace’s Righteous Series, and independently-published books from T.R. Ragan and A.K. Alexander. Other popular Kindle-exclusive books include Kurt Vonnegut’s new Kindle Single “Basic Training” and Stephen Covey’s groundbreaking business book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.”

More than 100,000 books are now available in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, including over 100 current and former New York Times Best Sellers. The vast majority of these titles are exclusive to Kindle and published using Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) – a self-service, easy-to-use platform for independent authors and publishers. When KDP authors choose to participate in KDP Select, their books are automatically included in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.

In March, each time Kindle owners borrowed a KDP Select book from the lending library, the author received $2.18, leading to significant increases in income for independently-published authors. One example is Martin Crosbie, the independent author of “My Temporary Life.” After enrolling the book in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library in February, he earned over $45,000 in one month from paid sales and loans combined – a huge increase from the $100 he earned the prior two months when his book was not enrolled in the program. “Because of Amazon, and KDP Select in particular, I can now call myself an author – before my experience with this program that was only a dream,” said Crosbie. “Through KDP Select, I have been able to get my work to thousands and thousands of readers quickly and effectively. My experience with KDP Select is truly life-changing.”

“Stories like Martin’s are becoming increasingly common and a great benefit of the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library,” said Russ Grandinetti, Vice President of Kindle Content. “KDP authors get a new way to reach more readers and customers discover great books. Every time a customer borrowed an independently-published book in March, the author earned $2.18. That’s more than many authors earn when their books are sold.”

Early sales data indicates that inclusion in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library not only generates additional revenue from loans for authors, but actually increases customer purchases of authors’ work as well.

In the case of Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy, 24% of customers who borrowed “The Hunger Games” bought “Catching Fire” and 24% bought “Mockingjay,” despite the entire series being available to borrow for free in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
Debora Geary was one of the top 10 KDP Select authors in February, and 51% of customers who borrowed one of her books from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library went on to buy one of her titles.
L.J. Sellers, author of the Detective Jackson Mystery/Thriller series, saw that 25% of customers who borrowed one of her books also bought one of her books, all of which are also available in the lending library.
Since the launch of the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library in November 2011, the paid retail sales of backlist trade titles in the library have seen 229% higher growth than corresponding titles that are not enrolled.
Other independent authors who’ve experienced success with KDP Select include:

Contemporary romance writer Kathy Dunnehoff earned nearly $9,000 from the KDP Select fund in February, and her royalties from paid sales increased more than 18 times month over month. “As an indie author, I count on KDP Select to help put me on the radar of my readers,” said Dunnehoff. “Through the free promotion days and exposure in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library, all three of my novels continue to find a wider audience.”

In February, romantic thriller writer Nina Bruhns earned over seven times more money from paid sales of her KDP Select books compared to January. “KDP Select is another great example of the innovative and game-changing opportunities that Amazon has provided to every single person out there with a dream to be a published author,” said Bruhns. “I am thrilled to be part of KDP with my indie titles, and have loved the results of my venture into KDP Select.”

T.R. Ragan is the best-selling thriller author of the Lizzy Gardner Series and was the number one KDP Select author in February. She earned over $11,000 from the KDP Select fund, and her royalties from paid sales of her books increased by more than four times from January to February. “My goal from the start has been to reach as many readers as possible and the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library has made it easy for me to do exactly that,” said Ragan. “Every time I enroll a new book in KDP Select, my expectations are blown out of the water. I can’t wait to see what Amazon will think of next!”

Press Releases / Doctor Who: Worlds in Time game now in open preview
« on: December 21, 2011, 04:20:00 AM »
BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment and Games today announced the open preview launch of Doctor Who: Worlds in Time, the new browser-based, free-to-play multiplayer online game. Developed in partnership with Three Rings, an award-winning developer of persistent online worlds, such as Puzzle Pirates and Spiral Knights, the game is the first-ever multiplayer game based on the Doctor Who television series.

Beginning today at DoctorWhoWIT.com, Doctor Who fans and gamers everywhere can enjoy the mystery and community of Doctor Who: Worlds in Time, which draws on the rich mythology, locations and excitement of the beloved television show.

"Our goal with Doctor Who: Worlds in Time is to expand engagement with the immensely popular Doctor Who brand and allow fans to deeply immerse themselves in that universe," said Robert Nashak, executive vice president, BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment and Games. "The game's multiple worlds, its varied, wonderful characters and monsters, and changing story arcs will appeal to both Doctor Who fans and casual gamers alike."

Doctor Who: Worlds in Time is designed for devotees of the show looking for a quick pick-up-and-play game, and life-long gamers and sci-fi enthusiasts seeking increased social engagement. Players choose among four races and endless possible character combinations to create their avatars. They can join together in missions identified by the mysterious Time Lord to defend civilization by undertaking interventions against infamous villains bent on creating chaos and destruction in the universe. Throughout the game, players will explore deep immersive worlds (e.g., Skaro, Messaline, The Library and New New York) featuring iconic monsters (e.g., Daleks, Cybermen and Weeping Angels), delivering the authentic experience of being part of the Doctor Who realm.

"As a huge Doctor Who fan, the chance to develop this game with BBC Worldwide was a dream opportunity," said Daniel James, CEO of Three Rings Design, Inc. "We've worked to provide Doctor Who fans an experience that matches the quality and imagination of the TV show, and a forum to introduce casual gamers to this remarkable world with an experience accessible to players of all levels."

While the game is free-to-play, revenue is generated through micro-transactions. Players can enhance their experience and accelerate their progress in the game through the purchase of Chronons, which will help them to complete missions, customize their avatars, build new contraptions and more.

Doctor Who, one of BBC Worldwide's flagship brands, is the longest-running science fiction series in the world. It's the story of the Doctor, the mysterious traveller in time and space, who has saved the universe so very many times. The Doctor is a Time Lord, one of a legendary race of powerful beings whose job it is to observe and record, but never interfere. 2011 was the biggest year ever for Doctor Who on BBC AMERICA with record ratings and mass critical acclaim. The series broadcasts in more than 70 million homes and On Demand across all major digital platforms. The Christmas Special, "The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe," premieres on December 25 at 9 p.m./8 p.m. Central on BBC AMERICA and at 8 p.m. on BBC One in the UK. 

Doctor Who: Worlds in Time will launch commercially in the first quarter of 2012.

Adrian Lester, who plays master con-man Mickey 'Bricks' Stone, stars in the last series of Hustle, as the gang of grifters continue to scam the high-flying and filthy rich by hitting them where it hurts most – their wallet!

What have been your favourite moments over the last eight series?

The Trafalgar Square moment was one of those moments you get to do something totally weird and outrageous. As Marc Warren said, how many people can say I’ve run through Trafalgar Square naked! And I did it eight times! It's right up there with playing Hamlet. It could only work in a show like this because it was tongue in cheek, entertaining and silly but also poignant. It’s one of my favourite episodes because it had the perfect balance of character, disappointment, desire, jeopardy, fun, skill and clever plotting. All the cons we did on the streets were done in one shot for each angle. It had to flow. I had to pick a pocket for real, in one go, like I was doing the actual con.

Another of my favourite sequences is where I had to do the magician’s trick of hiding the pound coin, in Episode 1 series 5. I reached to the floor with nothing in my hands and then made it appear in my palm. Then the pick-pocketing ... knocking over the wine, going in for the wallet and removing the credit card with one hand, close and replace the wallet, pocket the credit card and then saying goodbye with the man's car keys under my hat. Those sequences have been among my favourites.

Who is your favourite character that Mickey has played in a con?

I had the most fun with fashion designer, Hilary. The flamboyance of the character was really fun to play. I’d said many things in improvising that we just couldn’t keep! I also couldn’t believe that ‘hugs’ became a phrase people started using on Twitter! (@adrianlester) It’s so catchy, I had a lot of fun with it.

Who have been your favourite guest stars this year and over the last eight series?

One of the amazing things about the show is the quality of the guest artists that we get to act with. I think Robert Pugh was brilliant. He was in the second episode of the first series. He had to play a violent hotel owner, a gangster with a passion for musicals. His character shot Danny, had some guy beaten to a pulp, beat up Albert and did a tap routine all in the same episode. Hustle was off the wall then, reinventing television with each episode. So many shows have tried to copy its form. In this series, Sheila Hancock’s great and Martin Kemp was fantastic in my episode.

What was it like directing your debut TV episode for Hustle?

It was nerve-wracking! I wasn’t worried about directing the acting, that’s my field. I know how actors feel and how they go through the process. My learning curve was on the technical side of things. Scheduling, post-production - how am I supposed to deliver a scene with the various shots and angles I had planned within such a strict time-frame. But, having been in the show for so long and having watched so many directors manage their ideas to get the Hustle feel, helped.

Me and the other main cast of actors are part of what makes the show work. It means I had a bit of authority when it came to telling the team how the scene was going to be played. At script stage, because I knew the acting, I could make different choices. Ultimately it was quite a confidence boost as I’d spent a long time wondering if I could do it and now I know I can.

How was it directing your co-stars?

They were brilliant and so eager to help. They did what I asked almost before I'd asked it. Directors are under a lot of pressure on Hustle, as it’s not an easy show to get right. The cast would only ask a couple of questions – I mean, I wouldn’t even have finished giving them direction and they’d just do it. Mr Vaughn was brilliant. What a gent.

Which side of the camera do you prefer being on?

Ultimately, I prefer being in front of the camera. I didn’t train to be a director and my eye on it is purely a narrative exercise. I deal with the emotions of the characters involved because I’m an actor.

What was it like having to direct and film at the same time?

That was very difficult and tricky with the time constraints. On one day I had 15 actors, a 10-man punch up, 5 vehicles, 3 cameras, a bit of CGI and it did my head in! It took so long that by the time we were nearing the end, I just improvised to tie it up properly. We did it with two covers, shot the scene twice and were out. We took care of two pages in that one moment because it was necessary.

How was it working with Jaime Murray again?

It was lovely. Jaime’s slightly different now because she’s been doing the TV thing for so long. When she did Hustle, she hadn’t done that much television and it was a learning process for all of us. But she’s gone away and, as we’ve done so many Hustle series and found our groove, she’s found hers doing Dexter and Spartacus among other things. Then when she came back to Hustle, she had more chops and really knew her stuff!

What can you tell us about the final episode?

There were many ideas thrown at it. We had to have a Hustle con, a bad guy and a plan B. But the opening 30 seconds of the last episode ... it's ace. You won’t forget it!

If you could have written the ending, what would you have done?

I don't know. It's not really a task I envy. An ending that left the audience wondering what really happened. They would want to rewind it and look at it again and again. It should be, and I think is, one of those endings you talk about with your mates for ages afterwards.

How would you sum up the Hustle experience?

I find it quite hard to sum up a show that’s been as much fun as Hustle. The upsetting thing is the thought that I may not have this kind of experience again; working with that group of people and doing something where your energies and efforts result in a show that's truly popular. That’s the drug about doing a successful show. Because the audience don’t see it when you make it, you’re gambling that it will work. So when it goes out and people think it was amazing, the sense that you judged correctly and it paid off time and time again is something I don’t know I'll find again. If I – like Mr Vaughn – reach 78 or so and still have this kind of success in my work, then I’ll be happy. That’s all you can ask for.

What are your plans for the future?

There’s a chance of me doing Othello at the National Theatre in 2013 which I’m greatly looking forward to and hope nothing disturbs it. There is also the short film that I directed, Of Mary. We’ve had one nomination so far and have 20 other festival responses to come in. It's going to be screened as part of the London Short Film Festival in 2012. Apart from that, I think it's time for me to get back to some film work.

The Fades, the coming of age fantasy drama from writer Jack Thorne (This is England ’86, Skins, Shameless), earned critical acclaim in the UK and is now set to premiere in the US on January 14 as part of BBC AMERICA’s Supernatural Saturday. Seventeen-year-old geek Paul (Iain De Caestecker, Young Herriot) is haunted by apocalyptic dreams that his therapist can’t explain. Neither can best friend and fellow social outcast, Mac (Daniel Kaluuya, Johnny English Reborn), or unsympathetic and much cooler twin sister, Anna (Lily Loveless, Skins). But trying to fit in becomes the least of Paul and Mac’s worries, as Paul’s horrific dreams become a reality and they are embroiled in a battle between the living and the dead. The Fades premieres Saturday, January 14, 9:00pm ET/PT on Supernatural Saturday.

Natalie Dormer (The Tudors, Captain America: The First Avenger), Johnny Harris (Snow White and the Huntsman), Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones, Skins), and Tom Ellis (Merlin) also star in this smart new series that embraces both comedy and horror.

Paul and Mac love comic books, video games, riding bicycles and talking about - but not particularly with - girls. Their stats are on par with your average social outcasts. But for a long time, Paul’s mind has been filled with dark nightmares of an abandoned world where the sky rains ash.  Worse still, Paul has started to see things - horrible creatures that aren’t human. Then late one night, his dreams start to become real. As fate would have it, Paul meets Neil (Johnny Harris) and his nightmares - though still terrifying - start to make more sense. Neil explains that the things he can see are Fades.  Paul is special - he’s one of a small group of people who can see them.

Fades are the ghosts or spirits of human beings. Everyone who dies becomes a Fade. They cannot be seen, heard, smelt or touched by the living, and they are completely unable to interact with our world. The Fades should ascend, but for some reason, that isn’t happening. They’re trapped in a world they can’t experience.  And now an embittered and vengeful Fade has found a way to break the barrier between the dead and the living.

Soon the fate of humanity rests in the hands of two best friends who already have enough trouble surviving high school, let alone saving the world.

Creator Jack Thorne on the series: "What makes The Fades different is that it is a fantasy show rather than a science fiction show. It's about fairly ordinary people, none of these people act or behave like they're superheroes. The Fades is about the world itself being an extraordinary thing and how you battle it. This old school fantasy element combined with some pretty original characters - I hope is what will make people want to watch.”

"I think The Fades is a love story between Mac and Paul. As a kid I didn't have a best friend that I could share everything with and could be a team with, and this show is about a kid that's got one – it's a love story about two best friends.”

Following The Fades premiere on BBC AMERICA, the next special of The Nerdist premieres at 10:00pm ET/PT and features host Chris Hardwick’s interview with star Lily Loveless in London.
