Watch the new trailer for the BBC political thriller


Marriage is complicated. But this union appears much more so than most…


Sophie Okonedo and Adrian Lester star as Maya and Nick, a husband and wife with some serious secrets.

Maya is about to become the first black Director of Public Prosecutions. Just as her life comes under intense public scrutiny, she discovers that her husband 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?


Created by Peter Moffat, the six-part political thriller Undercover will air on BBC1 later this year.
