Kate Wyler (Keri Russell) is the new US Ambassador to the United Kingdom. She was supposed to go to Afghanistan. She’s great in a crisis zone. In a historic home… less so. War is brewing on one continent and boiling over on another. Kate will have to diffuse international crises, forge strategic alliances in London, and adjust to her new place in the spotlight — all while trying to survive her marriage to fellow career diplomat and political star Hal Wyler (Rufus Sewell). From showrunner Debora Cahn (THE WEST WING, HOMELAND), THE DIPLOMAT is a high-stakes, contemporary political drama about the transcendence and torture of long-term relationships, between countries and people. Also starring David Gyasi, Ali Ahn, Rory Kinnear, and Ato Essandoh, with executive producers Debora Cahn, Janice Williams, and Keri Russell.
The series will star Rufus Sewell, David Gyasi, Ali Ahn, Rory Kinnear, and Ato Essandoh. With guest stars already confirmed Celia Imrie, Michael McKean, Nana Mensah, T’Nia Miller, and Miguel Sandoval.
The Diplomat will premiere on Netflix from 20th April, so expect the trailer very soon.
