Follows spymaster Professor Wolfgang McGee, an academic who secretly manages a roster of espionage assets. These assets, referred to as Romeo or Juliet spies, are informants engaged in intimate long or short term relations with state intelligence targets. Wolfgang is a semi-retired Romeo operator, having worked his way up from youth in an unnamed and officially deniable "service" under the umbrella of Canada's Intelligence Community.
Actor/director Ian Tracey has been a regular in four television series from acclaimed showrunner Chris Haddock. He plays undercover cop Fergie on The Romeo Section, was Jimmy Reardon on Intelligence, and portrayed detective-turned-coroner Mick Leary on Da Vinci's Inquest and Da Vinci's City Hall. See more »
Another great show from this team of creators
As soon as I saw who had created this new series, Chris Haddock of Da Vinci's Inquest and Intelligence, I was pretty sure I would like it. Having watched the first episode, I wasn't disappointed. His signature is complex characters and plots with interwoven stories. Nothing is ever immediately obvious.
Though occasionally raw, this show isn't action packed, depending more on psychology and intrigue. Haddock creates the thinking person's mysteries. The Romeo Section is about spies with a special talent: Romeo Section of the title is a covert intelligence operation that uses seduction as its tool for spying. The Romeos and Juliets are recruited for their ability to get information by getting romantically/sexually involved with their intelligence targets. (Yes, there are some fairly explicit sex scenes. Just so you know.)
I will definitely keep watching this show. From my experience with Haddock's other productions, I expect it to get more and more complex as the various stories ravel and unravel and the tension climbs.
