While James Bond fans around the world patiently wait for the followup to "Skyfall," and for Sam Mendes to make up his mind already, a brief reprieve will arrive with "Fleming," a new Brit TV mini-series biopic on the famed creator of the international lothario and spy. And a new teaser trailer is here to give you a little sampling.

Dominic Cooper takes the title role as the playboy, gambler and spy, and it seems to present the author as a Bond-esque figure himself, before he started writing the novels, with the focus on his WWII posting in the British Naval Intelligence which inspired his literary creation. Mat Whitecross (“Sex And Drugs And Rock And Roll”) helms the four-part series, with Annabelle Wallis ("The Tudors") as Muriel Wright, the woman Fleming had an affair with and may have inspired the Bond Girl archetype. 

Lara Pulver, Samuel West, Lelsley Manville, Rupert Evans and Anna Chancellor round out the cast for "Fleming" which won't air until 2014. But take an early look below. [Deadline/Bleeding Cool]
