From BBC America:
A six part limited series, Undercover, features lead character Maya, who is about to become the first black woman to hold the highest ranking public prosecutor role in England. Just as her life comes under intense public scrutiny she discovers her husband Nick, and the father of her children, has been lying to her for years. Is he concealing an affair, or is it something altogether more sinister? If she digs up his real past will she jeopardize her own future? What price do you pay for uncovering lies? And who wants her in the top job, and why? From BAFTA-winner Peter Moffat (Criminal Justice) and directed by James Hawes (Penny Dreadful), the series stars Academy Award-nominee Sophie Okonedo (The Secret Life of Bees, Hotel Rwanda) as Maya, Adrian Lester (Red Band Society, London Spy) as Nick and Golden Globe®-nominee Dennis Haysbert (24, The Unit) as Rudy Jones.”
Undercover debuts on November 17th.
