NEXT EPISODE

A deep cover operative for the Organized Crime Task Force division of the FBI, Vinnie Terranova (Ken Wahl) is assigned an 18-month prison sentence and instructions to infiltrate the world of organized crime. When out of the joint, Terranova appears to have genuine "wiseguy" credentials, giving him the ability to get in deep with criminal organizations. Working closely with his superior, Frank McPike (Jonathan Banks), and buddy in the field, Daniel "Lifeguard" Burroughs (Jim Byrnes), Terranova systematically dismantles a number of criminal syndicates.
