TV show description:      
This drama is based on the real life events of CIA counter-intelligence officer Sandy Grimes (Jodie Whittaker). The story takes place in 1985 during the end of the Cold War.

Sandy and her partner Jeanne Vertefeuille (Harriet Walter) have vowed to find the mole that would turn out to be the most notorious traitor in US History, Aldrich Ames (Paul Rhys). Sandy is in a race against time to save the Soviet intelligence officers from being caught and killed.

Also a beautiful wife and mother, Sandy lives her own double life and has vowed to stop at nothing until she uncovers the truth.

Series Finale:     
Episode #8 — Avenger
Despite the task force being fully convinced of Ames’ guilt, Sandy seeks more definitive proof to convince the Justice Department to proceed with their own investigation. As the hunt closes in on Ames, Sandy’s commitment to the job pushes her husband’s patience and commitment to the brink. After Ames is finally caught and brought to justice, he mulls over a major decision — to go down defiantly or to confess and protect his wife and child. (Courtesy ABC)

    I can’t believe after 2 episodes this great series has been cancelled. Finally a great show from abc and you couldn’t wait a bit longer to see if others would be interested!

    History and no one is interested?

    You give us a taste of some good television then just take it away. At least you could but it on netflix or something so we could finish it.


    I only saw the first episode and found it very well written and enteraining . The show was very educational.ABC has a way with taking a quality show and not giving that show a chance to develope. I realize that TV is a business and the bottom line is important but ABC should give a show of this caliber a chance.

    You have got to be kidding!!! After having us choose between one reality show or another you cancel a show that has REAL meaning and truth?! Grow some balls and let the viewers choose what they want to see for a change. Not just something that makes you money. Remember we now pay for digital TV or pay for a box to receive even regular channels.

    What in the world…. ABC cancelled yet another show that had a good plot. It was not on of those shows that makes you not want to watch TV anymore. People don’t want to see reality shows all the time. At least give people the option to watch it on line.

    What the heck, I was just getting into the show and you cancel it? Your acting just like NBC and not even giving shows a chance!!! What are replacing it with, reruns? Oh that’s a novel idea!!! There was only eight shows, what’s so important that you can’t even show the other 6 shows. You could at least move it to Saturday so we could find out how the show ends.

    I enjoyed the first two episodes. Let’s see the last ones. The show is as good or better than other current shows.

    Disappointed this was pulled! If all eight (8) episodes were taped then why not air them in their entirety? I guess the subject matter was too negative from a political standpoint given the current political arena!

    I’m disappointed. I hadn’t watched/followed an ABC series in a number of yrs. This season I came back for Assets and S.H.I.E.L.D. I’ll stick w/the Marvel entry and this seems par for the course, w/abc, JUNK tv.
