MI-5 (Spooks) to begin airing on BBC America



BBC America will have a 2 hour premiere of MI-5 starring Matthew Macfadyen this Tuesday on June 5, 2007 at 8:00 pm ET. See the official website for further information.


Follow the adventures of 'Section B,' a crack team of spies in MI-5's counter-terrorism department led by Senior Case Officer Tom Quinn (Matthew Macfadyen, Pride and Prejudice). MI-5's officers deal with everything from terrorist plots and immigration rings to arms smuggling and drug trafficking. They must outwit the world's smartest criminal minds by using their powers of perception and deception.

But, the on-the-edge world of being a spy comes with a price. The very nature of their jobs dictates that they must never reveal their true identity, however, this deception extends to their private lives where they must deceive even those closest to them.

MI-5 also stars Keeley Hawes (Wives and Daughters) and David Oyelowo (The Last King of Scotland) as Junior Case Officers Zoe Reynolds and Danny Hunter, Jenny Agutter (The Parole Officer, Logan's Run) as Senior Case Officer Tessa Phillips and Peter Firth (Pearl Harbor) as Harry Pearce, Head of the Counter-Terrorism department.
