Subject: SPY - new reality series - starts Thurs. in U.S. on PBS

SPY is a gritty, London-based reality series that follows eight ordinary people as they train to become spies. The volunteers range in ages from 18 to 58 and are trained by ex-members of MI6 and the CIA, as well as intelligence and surveillance experts. The recruits undergo rigorous training and psychological pressure parallel to that of real intelligence operatives. They can be dismissed from the course at any stage if they don't adhere to the rules. Only one person will achieve the ultimate prize and it isn't a million dollars. It is merely the satisfaction of beating the odds and performing at the level of a professional spy!

#101 Into the Unknown
Stripped of their old identities, the raw recruits meet for the first time in London on day one. They receive their first briefing from their 'Spy Masters.' With no time to unpack, they are sent on their first mission: a real test used by Mossad, the Israeli Secret Service. They are given just 10 minutes to talk their way into a stranger's flat and be seen by their trainers drinking a glass of water on the balcony. After only 24 hours on the course, the recruits must learn a vital lesson: every spy can break under pressure. Without warning they are abducted from their safe-houses in the middle of the night and interrogated by intelligence professionals. They must stick to their cover names and avoid giving away any details about their real lives.

#102 Open Your Eyes
The wannabe spies hone their skills at 'going grey' - the art of mingling in a crowd without being noticed. The trainers instruct them in using effective body language and building an instant rapport with strangers. The recruits then embark on their toughest mission yet, which will test their skills of persuasion, nerve and the ability to think on their feet. They attempt to gain access to an office building (during working hours) and take photographs of confidential documents without getting caught.

#103 Under Cover
The greatest spies in history are those who blend effortlessly into any new environment. Will the recruits be up to the job? Their mission brief is simple go undercover, assume a new identity and fool those around them into believing that they're someone they're not. Their trainers, real former spies, are monitoring their progress and have a devious trap to find the recruits out. Will all of them make it through?
