Premiering on AMC and AMC+ in early 2024, Monsieur Spade stars and is executive produced by Golden Globe®, SAG®, and BAFTA® Award winner Clive Owen (Closer, Children of Men, The Knick) as hard-boiled private detective Sam Spade, the iconic protagonist of American author 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. In 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, the six-episode crime drama features a prominent ensemble cast, including up-and-comer Cara Bossom (Radioactive) as Teresa, Denis Ménochet (Inglorious Basterds) as Chief of Police Patrice Michaud, Louise Bourgoin (Interns) 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 (Downton Abbey: A New Era) as Philippe Saint Andre, and Rebecca Root (The Queen’s Gambit) as Cynthia Fitzsimmons.

Co-created, written, and executive produced by Emmy® Award winners Scott Frank (The Queen’s Gambit, Logan, Minority Report), who also serves as director, and Tom Fontana (City on a Hill, Borgia, Oz), Monsieur Spade is also executive produced by Barry Levinson, Teddy Schwarzman, Michael Heimler, Clive Owen, Caroline Benjo, Barbara Letellier, Simon Arnal, Carole Scotta, Carlo Martinelli, and David Helpern. In conjunction with the Dashiell Hammett Estate, the series is produced by Black Bear and co-produced by Haut et Court TV (The Returned, No Man’s Land), which also handled local production services in France, and Canal+. FilmNation Entertainment (I Know This Much Is True) handles international distribution outside of North America.

Stay tuned for updates.
