Sky has released a teaser trailer for Fleming, Sky Atlantic’s new series about the life of James Bond creator Ian Fleming.

Starring Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia!) as Fleming and Lara Pulver (Sherlock) as Ann O’Neill, an elegant Baroness, the four-part drama will air later this year.

Watch the trailer…

The official synopsis reads: “The outbreak of WWII saw a young Fleming as an unsuccessful stockbroker already with a failed army career behind him, living off his rich family whilst indulging his passions of alcohol, erotic literature and sexual conquests.

“But having been forced into Naval Intelligence through family connections, Fleming found a calling. Utilising his vivid imagination, charm and mischievous sense of humour he was responsible for some of the most outrageous counter intelligence missions against the Nazis, full of danger and intrigue, the experience of which would form the basis of the Bond books.

“Set against the permissive society of war-torn London, where champagne (and martinis) were always flowing and beds were always being swapped, Fleming explores the early life of the charming, enigmatic creator of 007.”
