Cast: Jonathan BanksJim ByrnesKen Wahl

Vinnie Terranova does time in a New Jersey penitentiary to set up his undercover role as an agent for the OCB (Organized Crime Bureau) of the United States. He has to fight with protection rackets, international arms dealing, foiling white supremacist plotters, uncovering a government conspiracy to set up a compliant new head of state in a third-world country, and the crime boss named Don Aiudo.

The series is an original one at the time was interesting and entertaining. It looks at an under cover cop who goes deep under cover and has to deal with his family also. A great performances from all the actors in this one. I think there was Kevin Spacey in the first season. He was trying to make his mark in the is series, he played in 7 episodes. Overall this was a kick ass series.
