Plot Synopsis

This fact-based drama series -- based on Charles Falco's 2013 memoir, "Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws: My Infiltration of America's Deadliest Biker Gangs" -- chronicles the mission of this meth dealer turned ATF infiltrator, who went inside one of America's most notoriously violent outlaw motorcycle gangs. Season 1 of GANGLAND UNDERCOVER follows Falco's three-year mission living a double-life as an ATF informant planted inside 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 20 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 Vagos gang members. Each one-hour episode opens with a silhouetted interview with the real Charles Falco, who, while working undercover, snuck into three different outlaw biker gangs, climbed their ranks, and facilitated a total of 62 arrests among the three groups.
Season 2 of GANGLAND UNDERCOVER premiered on Thursday, December 8, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT on A&E. The new season joins Falco trying to adjust to a strange new life in Witness Protection, two years since his undercover infiltration of the Vagos biker gang forced him to disappear. But fueled by a restless unease and an inability to embrace his new world, Falco takes the chance to return to undercover work. He joins ranks with Bullet, a relentless undercover agent with a personal grudge against biker clubs, and together, they recruit a team of informants to infiltrate not just the Mongols, but also their notoriously violent rivals: the Outlaws. Before long, Falco finds himself in over his head and thrust on to the front line of a territorial biker war between multiple clubs. While Falco's undercover life grows increasingly dangerous, he simultaneously gets drawn into a passionate relationship with a sparky waitress named Sarah Jane. Trying to balance his personal and professional life proves increasingly complicated, and soon Sarah Jane finds herself hopelessly entangled in Falco's dark and dangerous world.
