Bold and gripping, Undercover is a new six-part thriller written by the BAFTA-winning Peter Moffat.
The drama follows Maya played by Sophie Okonedo, a spirited and passionate barrister who, after years of acting as a defence lawyer, is about to become the first black Director of Public Prosecutions. But just as Maya’s life comes under intense public scrutiny, she discovers that Nick, played by Adrian Lester, her husband and the father of her children, has been lying to her for years.
His web of lies threatens to destroy everything she’s worked so hard for – including and most importantly the case she’s based her entire career on. Undercover weaves a tale of corruption, betrayal, and miscarriages of justice with a stellar cast including multi-award winning Dennis Haysbert.
