Civilians turn heroines in this compelling British WWII series
In the midst of WWII, brave British women risk their lives as secret agents in occupied France. Their assignment is sabotage, subversion, and propaganda; their fate, if caught, is torture or worse.
Now an experienced operative, Liz Grainger (Kate Buffery, Trial & Retribution) is working in the London home office under the direction of Colonel James "Cad" Cadogan (Julian Glover, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade). Desperately needed recruits join the team, but they bring troubles of their own. Vivien (Lynn Farleigh, Pride and Prejudice) carries a secret that may compromise her judgment, while Emily (Jane Snowden, All Passion Spent) is a skilled radio operator but dangerously raw at the spy game. How will they fare in France, where even the smallest mistake can prove fatal?
Based on the real-life stories of women recruited by Britain’s Special Operations Executive, Wish Me Luck features strong female characters, tension-filled plots, and historical authenticity. Also starring Jeremy Northam (The Tudors), Jane Asher (A Voyage Round My Father), and Michael J. Jackson (Doctors) as Resistance leader Kit Vanston.
