FIRST PHOTOS WITH COLIN FIRTH, MATTHEW MACFADYEN
|Operation Mincemeat arrives January|
THE STORY IS SET IN 1943
when the Allies were determined to break Hitler’s grip on occupied Europe, the remarkable true story follows intelligence officers Ewen Montagu (Firth)
and Charles Cholmondeley (Macfadyen) who conjure
an inspired and improbable disinformation strategy centered on the most
unlikely of secret
agents: a dead man. They would trick the Nazis into
thinking that Allied forces were planning to attack southern Europe by
way of Greece rather than Sicily.
Their plan was to get a corpse, equip
it with misleading papers, then drop it off the coast of Spain where
Nazi spies would take the bait. It was a plan that helped turn the tide
of the whole war.

Speaking of first photo, here's one from a new multicam sitcom that NBC has just ordered into series: NIGHT COURT will be a follow up to the classic sitcom following an unapologetic optimist judge Abby Stone (Melissa
Rauch), the daughter of the late Harry Stone, who follows in her father’s footsteps as she presides over the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court and tries to bring order to its crew of oddballs and cynics, most notably former night court prosecutor Dan Fielding (John Larroquette is reprising his role from the original).
|It is not known if the sitcom arrives midseason or next season|
