‘Little Drummer Girl,’ ‘Escape at Dannemora’ join miniseries’ new golden age

The miniseries is in full flower right now, offering major stars willing to commit to six or seven episodes but not open-ended runs. Enter two such projects, both dealing, as it happens, in sexual manipulation: “Escape at Dannemora” — a stranger-than-fiction prison escape story, airing on Showtime — and AMC’s “The Little Drummer Girl,” which expands John le Carre’s espionage novel into a sharply drawn, six-part international thriller.
