Monsieur Spade (AMC) -- S: Clive Owen as Sam Spade -- Based on the character from The Maltese Falcon



Monsieur Spade centers around the infamous protagonist of American writer Dashiell Hammett's 1930 classic novel The Maltese Falcon. The year is 1963, and the legendary Detective Sam Spade (Owen) is enjoying his retirement in the South of France. By contrast to his days as a private eye in San Francisco, Spade's life in Bozouls is peaceful and quiet. But the rumored return of his old adversary will change everything. Six beloved nuns have been brutally murdered at the local convent. As the town grieves, secrets emerge, and new leads are established. Spade learns that the murders are somehow connected to a mysterious child who is believed to possess great powers.

Shot on-location in France, Monsieur Spade features a prominent ensemble cast in up-and-comer Cara Bossom (Radioactive) as Teresa, Denis Ménochet (Inglorious Basterds) as Chief of Police Patrice Michaud, Louise Bourgoin (The Romanoffs) as Marguerite Devereaux, Chiara Mastroianni (On a Magical Night) as Gabrielle, Stanley Weber (Outlander) as Jean-Pierre Devereaux, Matthew Beard (The Imitation Game) as George Fitzsimmons, Jonathan Zaccaï (Robin Hood) as Philippe Saint Andre and Rebecca Root (The Queen's Gambit) as Cynthia Fitzsimmons.

This is a 6 episode limited series coming in 2024

It's created by Tom Fontana and Scott Frank, the creators of Oz and The Queen's Gambit.

That looks good. Too bad we have to wait until 2024.

It's been a while since I've seen a good nunsploitation flick!

I watched the first two episodes. Pretty good, right in my wheelhouse. Kind of fills the void left when HBO criminally canceled Perry Mason. And I love the French countryside (who doesn’t?). Not sure where it’s headed, and it’s pretty slow and leisurely, but overall I like it and I’m in for the season.
