This dramatic four-hour miniseries written by Pulitzer Prize winner Norman Mailer is the true story of FBI Special Agent Robert Hanssen, derived from interviews with those involved in this historical spy case. MASTER SPY: THE ROBERT HANSSEN STORY is the story of a man with divided loyalties and conflicting internal motivations. It explores the schism that erupts when a very devout and conservative Catholic is confronted with conflicting American and Soviet ideology. It is the true story as no one knows it and reveals startling facts even unknown to the U.S. government. Mailer draws his screenplay from his conversations with Hanssen family members, those who worked with Hanssen at the FBI and knew him personally, and even the KGB officers that dealt with him on a daily basis.
