Slow Horses, AppleTV’s adaptation of the popular “Slough House” spy novel series by Mick Herron is finally in production. In a very different role than Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Gary Oldman is starring as the shambolic spy Jackson Lamb, who oversees the Slough House, a Limbo for disgraced agents. Also in the cast are Kristin Scott Thomas, Jonathan Pryce and Olivia Cooke. The first season will be 2 mini seasons each based on a different book, à la Wisting. The first half of the season will be based on Slow Horses, and the second half based on Dead Lions, both of which you can buy here. (affiliate link) We love the books, and can’t wait for the series, which should be out in 2021.
