Netflix Sets Premiere Date for New Drama 'The Diplomat' Starring Keri Russell

Netflix has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original drama series The Diplomat starring Keri Russell.

All 8 episodes of the first season will be available on Thursday, April 20.

Kate Wyler (Russell) is the new U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom. She was supposed to go to Afghanistan. She's great in a crisis zone. In a historic home... less so. War is brewing on one continent and boiling over on another. Kate will have to diffuse international crises, forge strategic alliances in London, and adjust to her new place in the spotlight - all while trying to survive her marriage to fellow career diplomat and political star Hal Wyler.

In addition to Russell, the drama stars Rufus Sewell, David Gyasi, Ali Ahn, Rory Kinnear and Ato Essandoh.

Guest stars include Celia Imrie, Michael McKean, Nana Mensah, T'Nia Miller and Miguel Sandoval.

Debora Cahn created the drama. She executive produces with Russell, Janice Williams and Simon Cellan Jones.
