A Spy Among Friends is set to air in November 2022 on the new streaming platform ITVX in the UK. US release pending.

At one point in the evening Damian took to the stage to speak to the viewing audience before introducing the film.

In 1963, MI6 agent Kim Philby (Guy Pearce) was revealed to be a KGB spy in one of the most humiliating chapters of Britain’s involvement in the Cold War. This adaptation of Ben Macintyre’s best-selling book explores the impact of this notorious betrayal of the British establishment. It focuses specifically on what happened during the final meeting between Philby and his close friend and fellow MI6 agent Nicholas Elliott (Damian Lewis), in the days leading up to his defection.
