A Spy Among Friends
Based on the New York Times best-selling book by Ben Macintyre, the six-episode series dramatizes the true story of Nicholas Elliott and Kim Philby, two British spies and lifelong friends. Philby was the most notorious British defector and Soviet double agent in history. This story is about intimate duplicity, loyalty, trust, and betrayal. Philby’s profoundly personal betrayal, uncovered at the height of the Cold War, resulted in British and American intelligence’s gutting.
