MI-5
NEW SEASON!
THURSDAYS AT 10 PM
EIGHT, ARIZONA PBS

A series takes us into the thrilling world of M.I.5 – known to insiders simply as ‘Five' – the clandestine security service, and the people who make up the elite team. They tackle organized crime, terrorist activities, embassy sieges, weapons proliferation and anarchists, not to mention the conflicts and power struggles back in the office.

MI-5 is a topical and edgy drama about passion, jeopardy and the intrigue of people who have to lie for a living – and who have to deceive their loved ones about what they do.

In the post-9/11 world where the role of the Intelligence services and secret agents is being thrown into greater relief, MI-5 is a timely drama from a first-class creative team and boasts a very strong cast.

MI-5 airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. starting April 21, 2011 on Eight, Arizona PBS.
