Reel Television | Rogue


One of cable television’s best kept secrets is DirecTV’s drama, Rogue. Such are the travails of distributing a show on a network with such an exclusive audience.

The show centers on Grace (Thandie Newton) who has left her life as an undercover cop to be a better mother to her daughter. She’s recently separated from Tom and with the arrival of her estranged mother, she’s got plenty of drama at home. Grace’s new job as a handler for a FBI task force has her investigating corporate espionage in San Francisco. But when her undercover operative, Sarah, goes missing, Grace is forced to go back undercover to save her.

That’s when she meets Ethan (Cole Hauser), the owner of the security consultancy Sarah investigated before disappearing. Grace looks to gain Ethan’s trust to learn what happened to Sarah, but Ethan has his own agenda. His close friend and business partner was murdered the night Sarah vanished. He’s determined to find who’s responsible—creating a dangerous game of cat and mouse. As Grace gets closer to Ethan, her feelings grow. But can she trust him?

Rogue airs every Wednesday at 8pm. By virtue that we don’t have DirecTV, we haven’t had the opportunity to see the show but we LOVE Newton and hope the show reaches a wider audience in the future.
