UC: Undercover

UC: Undercover


Synopsis: From the co-writer of "Shaft and "Armageddon" comes this complex action-thriller which focuses on the secret lives and private demons of an elite Justice Department crimefighting unit that confronts the country’s deadliest, most untouchable lawbreakers by going undercover to bust them.

The unit is headed by authoritative Donovan (Oded Fehr, "The Mummy" and "The Mummy Returns") and comprised of undercover agents Jake Shaw (Jon Seda) and Alex Cross (Vera Farmiga, "Fifteen Minutes" opposite Robert DeNiro), psychological profiler Monica Davis (Bruklin Harris) and young techno-wizard Cody, played by Jarrad Paul, who runs all of the high-tech surveillance operations that the team conducts.

As a federal team, the group can respond to emergencies all over the country -- taking down elite bank robbers, drug kingpins, domestic terrorists, spies, jewel thieves and dirty cops.

The drama’s character-driven storylines will emphasize the taut, cat-and-mouse game played by the undercover agents as they attempt to infiltrate the lives of a gallery of criminals, including murderous master thief Jack "Sonny" Walker (William Forsythe, "Gotti" and "The Rock") and imprisoned drug lord Carlos Cortez (Steven Bauer, "Traffic," in a recurring role). The series also explores the psychological toll undercover work takes on the agents who play this deadly game of false identities and who commit treachery as a daily profession.

Watch without being seen, listen without being heard, and seduce without being seduced—that’s what this team of agents and experts does as it uses cutting-edge technology to surveil criminals and extraordinary courage and skill to take them off the streets.

The team often butts heads with Paul Bloom (Brian Markinson, "Enemy of the State"), their obstructive and fiercely ambitious, career-climbing Justice Department boss.

Film composer and Grammy Award winner David Arnold has agreed to write the main title theme and to score the pilot episode. Arnold, who composed the award-winning scores for "Independence Day," "Shaft," "Stargate," and the last two James Bond films, is widely considered to be one of the top composers in Hollywood. In 15 years of composing, this marks only the second time that he has agreed to score a television show.
