SBS nabs free to air rights to The Night Manager


Scintillating UK spy drama The Night Manager, which concludes this Sunday on BBC First, will be getting a Free to Air screening on SBS.

The series, based on a John Le Carre novel has won rave review for performances by Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie, Olivia Colman and Aussie Elizabeth Debicki. It is about to launch in the US.

SBS it tipped to screen the 6 part series next year.


  1. jezza the first original one

    This seems a bit of a waste of a great mini series. It should be on ABC so it gets a wider audience and SBS should concentrate on multicultural offerings. You can see why some folk call for a merger of the 2 networks

  2. Secret Squïrrel

    This is a great mini-series, really well-written and produced. Coleman is fantastic as always, Hugh Laurie seems to be really enjoying himself as the villain, and Hiddleston and Aussie Debicki were revelations. Tom Hollander was pretty good, too.

  3. Why are they waiting so long to show it? This is the internet age – and this article is basically free promotion for people to get online and download/stream this series way before SBS broadcast it
