BBC AMERICA’s Undercover is a new political thriller told through a family on the brink of destruction. From BAFTA-winning screenwriter Peter Moffat (The Night Of, Criminal Justice), the six-part series follows Maya Cobbina (Sophie Okonedo), a spirited and passionate barrister (lawyer), who is about to become the first black Director of Public Prosecutions – the highest-ranking public prosecutor role in England. But just as Maya’s life comes under intense public scrutiny, she discovers that Nick (Adrian Lester), her husband and the father of her children, has been lying to her for years. His web of lies threatens to destroy not only her career (and the twenty-year-long case she’s based it all on), but also the life she and Nick built together.
Starring Academy Award nominee Sophie Okonedo, Olivier Award winner Adrian Lester and Golden Globe® nominee Dennis Haysbert, Undercover debuts with a two-night premiere event on Wednesday, November 16 and Thursday, November 17 at 8/7c on BBC AMERICA.
