About the series

X Company is an emotionally driven adventure drama, set in the thrilling and dangerous world of WWII espionage and covert operations. It follows the stories of five highly skilled young recruits – Canadian, American and British – torn from their ordinary lives to train as agents in Camp X: an ultra-secret training facility on the shores of Lake Ontario.

Our agents parachute behind enemy lines, where they’re fair game for torture and execution. From elegant hotels to hell-holes in the field, it’s one risky operation after another, masterminded by the brains of Camp X. Sabotage, bombs, arming and training guerrilla fighters, rescue operations, deception campaigns, even assassination: we feel, up close and intimate, both the adrenaline joyride and the dirty-hands nightmare as shining ideals collide with the emotional realities of fighting a war where no rules apply.

Inspired by remarkable true stories, X Company is about the origin of spycraft. It’s an aspirational world, combining glamour, grit, and gadgets. It’s about the birth of mass propaganda, the first fights against terror, and the heroes that led the charge to change our world.
