X Company is set in the thrilling and dangerous world of WWII espionage and covert operations. Inspired by the true story of Camp X, a top secret Allied spy training facility in Lake Ontario, we follow the stories of five highly skilled young recruits, torn from their ordinary lives and trained to conduct one risky mission after another to help Allied forces change the world.
These agents parachute behind enemy lines, where they’re fair game for torture and execution. From elegant hotels to hellholes in the field, it’s one risky operation after another, masterminded by the brains of Camp X. The series stars Jack Laskey (Hatfields & McCoys), Evelyne Brochu (Orphan Black), Warren Brown (Luther), Conner Price and Dustin Milligan.
“World War II has provided a chilling and dramatic backdrop for many movies and TV series over the years, but we found that each of these series use the historical touch points of this era to enrich some very unique and engaging character studies and plot lines,” said Scott Woodward, EVP of Programming and Production, Ovation. “Both The Halcyon and X Company (new series) have first-rate production values and top-notch performances by their ensemble casts. Ovation has had great success with this type of ‘event’ programming and we anticipate that our viewers will find new favorites to obsess over when these series debut.”
