Sky and BBC 'Fleming' will debut Wednesday 12 February at 9pm on Sky Atlantic HD
Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) plays Ian Fleming, the cunning creator of one of the most famous fictional heroes, James Bond, in Sky Atlanticâs four-part dramatization of Flemingâs life. Thereâs no questioning the iconic status of the man they call 007, and FLEMING explores how some of the real-life exploits of Ian Fleming became the inspiration for one of the most enduring and successful characters ever..
Untroubled by the spectre of impending war, roguish playboy Ian Fleming chases women, collects rare books and lives off the family fortune. Forever in the shadow of his brother Peter (Rupert Evans) and an eternal disappointment to his formidable mother Eve (Lesley Manville), Ian is finally given some direction in his life when heâs recruited by Admiral John Godfrey (Samuel West) to help in the effort against the Nazis. With the somewhat sceptical support of tough-cookie Second Officer Monday (Anna Chancellor), Ianâs extraordinary imagination and ability to spin a yarn makes him a perfect fit for espionage.
