Storyline

John Tavner doesn't really fit in with his quirky colleagues at the industrial piping corporation where he works. They don't really know much about him, but what they don't realize is that his life has been anything but mundane. To prevent Iran from going nuclear, he has assumed a fake persona as an average businessman when in reality he is actually a highly skilled intelligence officer, who took the piping job because of the routine business trips to Luxembourg, and because the job is secluded and too dull to be noticed. Unfortunately for him a European cop is at his heels trying to discover who he is, his incessantly grim and nervous coworker Mr. Icabod has figured out that he isn't who he says, and Steven, a chubby employee with a recent brain injury, is starting to remember a horrible act which John may have inflicted.

Trivia

The "Luxembourg" scenes were actually filmed in the beautiful Czech city of Prague in the area surrounding the Charles Bridge. Constructed between 1357 and 1402 and named after King Charles IV, it is well known for its stunning Gothic Tower and the 30 mainly Baroque statues that span the length of the bridge. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scene, the pipeline company executives grill the main character about his knowledge of pipelines. The head honcho mispronounces the type of weld he is asking about - a fillet weld - which is correctly pronounced "fill-it". See more »

One of the Best Most Creative Shows of All Time
4 August 2019 | by The-AmbassadorSee all my reviews

Extremely creative writing. Stellar cast. Excellent acting. Full of surprises. Part thriller part comedy part human condition exploration plus great music. This show is freaking brilliant. The executives at Amazon prime are idiots for not renewing it.
