Premiere episode, later released as a TV and theatrical movie entitled To Trap A Spy
The United Network Command for Law Enforcement is a worldwide organization who's main purpose is to keep peace in the world and try to keep the bad guys at bay.
But this day, U.N.C.L.E.'s New York headquarters have been breached by a team of assassins from their arch enemies, THRUSH. Agents manage to get through the soon to be well known "secret" entrance in the rear of Del Floria's tailor shop and infiltrate the building. The invaders are discovered quickly but one manages to get away, deep into the building, eventually coming face to face with top U.N.C.L.E. agent Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn), who eliminates the threat.
Apparently, the attack was preemptive to assassinate U.N.C.L.E. man in charge Mr. Waverly, prior to other assassination plans leading up to the overthrow of a new African nation, which THRUSH would then move into. It's up to U.N.C.L.E. to stop them.
The later movie version would re-name characters, add or delete scenes and change the plot slightly from the television episode. Share this article with your friends
