UC: Undercover

Show Summary

"To catch a criminal, you have to become one..." "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) and comprised of undercover agents Jake Shaw (Jon Seda) and Alex Cross (Vera Farmiga), psychological profiler Monica Davis (Bruklin Harris) and young techno-wizard Cody (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) and imprisoned drug lord Carlos Cortez (Steven Bauer, 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), their obstructive and fiercely ambitious, career-climbing Justice Department boss." (NBC press release)moreless

  • Has a really good premise, but fails to deliver.

    This could have been a really good show with it's undercover cop drama. But something was wrong here. It didn't have that same flare of a good under cover show that made such shows like wiseguy or 21 jumpstreet so good. it had the right formula and perfectly good cast. the concept needed some fixin to make it right and the producers failed in that area. it's really sad that there were good actors on the show such as oded fehr and william forsythe. this concept could have been the perfect police drama but sadly it didn't deliver. it just wasn't that good.moreless
  • Good show though short

    I don't know why this show wasn't given a chance

    As I thought that it would be a great show

    As well as grow with time but sadly the dumb brass

    At NBC killed the show before it got a chance to

    Really developed and grow on its own. I guess that

    Bad ratings will do that to a show!
  • To be honest, I would have preferred to spend my time elsewhere than finish watching this. However, I kept thinking that there is great potential behind this and I was half right.moreless

    To be honest, I would have preferred to spend my time elsewhere than finish watching this. However, I kept thinking that there is great potential behind this and I was half right. There was potential to say the least but this potential was poorly exploited leaving a show that is half decent. Nonetheless, you really have to see SHOW to get what I'm talking about.
