"Gangland Undercover" is a fact-based drama series on History Channel.

The series chronicles meth dealer turned ATF infiltrator Charles Falco's mission inside one of America's most notoriously violent outlaw motorcycle gangs. Giving a rare look inside this historically infamous organized crime gang through of the eyes of an undercover investigator, the series is based on Falco's 2013 memoir, "Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws: My Infiltration of America's Deadliest Biker Gangs."

The series follows Falco's three-year mission living a double-life as an ATF informant planted inside the one of the most historically dangerous motorcycle gangs, the California-based Vagos — a criminal group involved in drug trafficking, arms smuggling, money laundering and murder. Falco initially took on the assignment out of self-preservation, to avoid twenty years in prison on drug charges, but his outlook soon shifted, becoming a quest to achieve justice. Operation 22 Green, as it was known, ended in March 2006 with the arrests of 25 gang members.

Drawing on the wealth of material from Falco's book, along with broader documented historical research of inter-gang rivalries, the series will capture the reality of outlaw biker counter-culture: a world in which freedom is equated with the right to carry guns and trade drugs with impunity, a world in which respect can be earned through fear.

"Gangland Undercover" is produced for History by Cineflix Productions in association with Shaw Media and in association with Stephen Kemp ("Paranormal Witness," "After Armageddon"). Charles Tremayne ("First 48," "American Pickers and Surviving Evil") and Kim Bondi are amongst Cineflix's executive producers. Noel Baker ("Hard Core Logo") is the lead writer.
