TV: Moody, Short, Intense Teaser For Hitchcock Drama ‘The Girl’! UPDATED!


Updated with a second teaser.

We’ve been giving you a lot of looks at Toby Jones (Red Lights, Your Highness) and Sienna Miller (Factory Girl) portraying the iconic Alfred Hitchcock and Tippi Hedren in the BBC Two production of The Girl. Now, a new 30 second teaser has come along that really sells Jones’ intensity as Hitchock.

The film, penned by Gwenyth Hughes, follows the life and relationship of Alfred Hitchcock and his discovery of Tippi Hedren and the turmoil that surrounded them while making The Birds (1963), and how his ultimate failure ended up destroying both their careers. According to BBC Two Hedren has cooperated by giving interviews to Hughes, while Hitchcock biographer Donald Spoto is attached as a consultant. Becoming Jane’s Julian Jarrold is directing with Imelda Staunton and Penelope Wilton also in the cast.

Head inside to take a look at the teaser. The Girl premieres on HBO on Sunday, October 20th at 9PM.
