Inspired by remarkable true stories, fast-paced spy drama X Company is an emotionally-driven character drama, set in the thrilling and dangerous world of Second World War espionage and covert operations. It tells the story of five highly-skilled new recruits from Canada, the US and Britain who have been torn from their everyday lives to train together as agents at Camp X, an ultra-secret facility on the shores of Lake Ontario, Canada. X Company combines spy craft, glamour, grit and gadgets with fast-paced action, intrigue and passion in a dramatic telling of the real-life camp where British spies – including Ian Fleming and Roald Dahl - were allegedly trained during the war.
