” I have been playing the role of Detective Olivia Benson on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit but Bob Hamer wasn’t playing; for him it was all too real. This undercover FBI agent has been on the front lines for the past 26 years, going toe-to-toe with some of the worst society has to offer. The Last Undercover is truly an enlightening look into a world many of us only hope is the product of some TV writer’s imagination. This is drama at its very best… and it’s true.”
