Watch The Assets
- 1 Season
A new eight-part miniseries that is based on actual events and focuses on the story of CIA counterintelligence officer Sandy Grimes who is investigating the possibility of a mole in the agency. The mole, Aldrich Ames, a close coworker of Grimes, is now known as the most notorious traitor in United States history with nine years spent selling secrets to the Russians that resulted in the deaths of many people. The miniseries starts with what was the beginning of Ames' downfall close to the end of the Cold War. It was in 1986 when the team was put together to find the mole and put a stop to the deaths of their operatives. The series does a great job of capturing the style of the 1980's and the fact that they include Agent Grimes family setting adds to the realness of the story. This show is great for people who like to learn about history without feeling that they are in school or watching a documentary.
