Action Team is a new ITV2 comedy series but who's on the cast and what's it all about?
Action Team is a spoof comedy action thriller series following the exploits of a special branch of MI6. The team is made up of four secret agents; the heroic Logan Mann, mix martial arts and bomb expert Monica Lang, crack sniper Graham Hooper and Huxley, who’s just on work experience.
They are overseen by the straight shooting head of operations Ruth Brooks and her assistant called Anne.
In the first series Action Team are faced with an evil network masterminded by Vladimir Schevchenko, an attention seeking leader of a tiny republic of Russia, that no one has heard of, who is as inept as he is unpredictable.
Action Team cast
Written by Tom Davis and James De Frond, Action Team stars Tom Davis (Plebs, The Keith Lemon Show, Murder In Successville), Jim Howick (Horrible Histories, Broadchurch), Kayode Ewumi (Are You Being Served, #HoodDocumentary) and Laura Checkley (Cradle to Grave, Bridget Jones’s Baby).
“Every year I sit there as the bookies predict who they think will play the next James Bond and I’m always left off the list, so I’ve decided to do something about it.” says Tom Davis.
In tonight's fifth of six episodes, Ruth Brooks has successfully retrieved the Antelopes Tail, securely locating it back at MI6. But all is lost for Action Team as they are shut down and Logan is presumed dead.
With no one to stop him, Vlad’s fury is unleashed as he threatens the world with the unveiling of his Super Mega Robot.
Elsewhere, Graham and Monica try to warn MI6 that they have a mole in their midst. But with Action Team disbanded, who is left to stop the Super Mega Robot being unleashed at midnight (Russian time)?
Action Team airs Monday nights at 10PM on ITV2.
