The Alphabets

10 x 1 returning 1940s spy thriller series
Director Jon Amiel (THE BORGIAS, ENTRAPMENT)
Writer Mathew Newman (SOME KIND OF BEAUTIFUL)
A Headline Pictures and Gaumont production

A taut political thriller set in Berlin and Washington DC in the three years following the end of WW2. Based on the true story of OPERATION PAPERCLIP.

Four best friends from Yale (their names are Andrew, Ben, Charlotte and David, so they call themselves The Alphabets) join the legendary OSS, full of dreams of changing the world. Soon they find themselves caught up in OPERATION PAPERCLIP, a secret operation to catch selected Nazi war criminals, not to bring them to justice, but to bring them to America to help build the American Dream. The friends are dragged into the post-WWII war � a dangerous, treacherous and murky theatre of operations every bit as deadly as the actual war itself. By the end, one of the friends is murdered by one of the others, their friendships are fractured and each are faced with the uncomfortable truth that the world they�ve helped to change may not have changed for the better.
