Seeing as I completely missed it because I was buried in my BA thesis, have another look at the trailer for the upcoming Sky HD drama, Fleming. Starring Dominic Cooper, the series will take a good long look at the man who created James Bond — especially a “wartime encounter” with a baroness, played by Lara Pulver.
In my defence, not only I missed this trailer when it came out in July, and the vid only has 128,000 views — which is lightweight compared to the prospective audience they’re undoubtedly trying to reach. I don’t know if it’s an affliction troubling all UK channels at the moment, but their social media promotion, which especially us customers outside of the UK rely on, isn’t really up to snuff at the moment. But then, we don’t know when exactly in 2014 this is going to premiere — in which case I’d say, releasing the press pack in July without follow-up promotion isn’t the smartest thing to do.
The RadioTimes also features a First Look at the series, offering a few stills and the official blurb on the new show.
