Monsieur Spade Teaser: First Look At Clive Owen As The Infamous Private Eye In AMC Limited Series

PI Sam Spade (Clive Owen) finds his quiet life in retirement interrupted in Monsieur Spade, AMC’s upcoming six-episode crime drama series from Owen, The Queen’s Gambit creator Scott Frank and City on a Hill showrunner Tom Fontana.

AMC has released the first trailer for the six-episode series in which Owen stars, co-writes and executive produces. It’s set to premiere on AMC and AMC+ in early 2024.

Per the logline: Monsieur Spade centers around the infamous protagonist of American writer 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. By 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.
