Plot Synopsis

THE SHADOW LINE is an eight-part conspiracy thriller that follows cops and criminals, as they investigate the recent death of a drug baron, Harvey Wratten, who was just released from jail following a royal pardon. From the cop with a bullet in his brain, whose amnesia leaves him doubtful of his own moral compass; to the drug-lord driven by a profound personal tragedy, risking it all on one last deal; to the brilliantly lethal puppet-master who gradually emerges from the shadows to bring the story to its shocking climax, this series explores the morality of the slippery characters who navigate the fine line between right and wrong. DirecTV aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Sunday, February 19, 2012 at 9pm ET/PT on its Audience Channel.
