The Diplomat, a political drama starring three-time Emmy nominee Keri Russell, has been set to premiere on April 20, 2023 on Netflix. In the first official photo, Russell portrays Ambassador Kate Wyler.
The Diplomat is described on Netflix as follows.
"Kate Wyler is the new US Ambassador to the United Kingdom. She was originally scheduled to travel to Afghanistan. In a historic home, she is excellent in a crisis zone." "She will have to manage international conflicts, forge strategic alliances in London, and adjust to her new role in the spotlight."
David Gyasi, Ali Ahn, Rory Kinnear, and Ato Essandoh are among the guests on this episode. Celia Imrie, Michael McKean, Nana Mensah, T’Nia Miller, and Miguel Sandoval are also on the guest list.
Debora Cahn, series creator, showrunner, and executive producer of "The Diplomat," says the show. "We don't want these relationships to last forever."
"In the world of diplomacy, you're dealing with a lot of rule-bound, protocol-driven behavior, but underneath all of that, these are people who sweat, and spill coffee on their clothes, and forget the name of the person they're talking to."
Executive producers include Keri Russell, Janice Williams, and Simon Cellan Jones (episodes 1 and 2).
