It follows the stories of five highly skilled young recruits - Canadian, American and British - torn from their ordinary lives to train as agents in an ultra-secret facility on the shores of Lake Ontario. These agents parachute behind enemy lines, where they're fair game for torture and execution. From elegant hotels to hellholes in the field, it's one risky operation after another, masterminded by the brains of Camp X.

Top quality Canadian production about Canada's World War II spycraft. Canada's Camp X, spies in France and Germany. Great plots, twists, writing, acting, costumes, locations...everything. The first episode is the pilot episode and is a bit more grim and nasty than the other episodes.

Camp X, for those who don't know, was North America's only spycraft training facility during WWII. It was situated east of Toronto. Several good books about this place. Read up. Fascinating stuff.

Cast includes:
Evelyne Brochu of Orphan Black
Hugh Dillon of Flashpoint and of Durham County
Jack Laskey of Endeavour and of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
Dustin Milligan of Schitt's Creek and of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency
Warren Brown of Luther and of Occupation
Lara Jean Chorostecki of Hannibal and of Designated Survivor
Connor Price of Being Human

Excellent TV series about Canadian espionage during WW II. Not sure why it's not better known, because both the writing and acting are much better than other series like Murdoch Mysteries or Republic of Doyle.
