Plot Synopsis

"The Wanted" brings together an elite team of people with backgrounds in intelligence, unconventional warfare and investigative journalism. This team performs surveillance operations of some of the world's famous terrorists. In the first episode, the team follows Mullah Krekar (aka Bin Laden 2.0), who lives free in Oslo even though the Norwegian Supreme Court declared him a threat to national security and ordered him deported because he is the founder and leader of Ansar Al Islam. In the second episode, the team surveils Mamoun Darkazanli in Germany and begins negotiations for his deportation to Spain, where officials indicted him in 2003 for providing logistical and financial support to Al Qaeda, specifically in connection with 9/11.
