Spies are really having a moment right now, between “Homeland,” “Skyfall,” USA Network’s ongoing “Covert Affairs,” FX’s upcoming Keri Russell drama and, of course, the Petraeus affair. So the time’s ripe for “Restless,” the new original miniseries from Sundance Channel about a young woman named Ruth Gilmartin (Michelle Dockery of “Downton Abbey”) who finds out her mother Sally (Charlotte Rampling) was a spy during World War II.
The two-part British coproduction also stars Rufus Sewell, Michael Gambon and Hayley Atwell, and is based on a novel by William Boyd, who will be writing the next James Bond novel. Part one will premiere December 7th at 9pm, with part two airing on December 14th. Check out the trailer below:
