Charles Falco’s true story of infiltrating an outlaw motorcycle gang – out now on DVD.

18th May 2017

The long-awaited thrilling crime drama series Gangland Undercover has finally arrived on DVD. The very first season follows meth dealer turned ATF infiltrator Charles Falco’s mission inside one of America’s most notoriously violent outlaw motorcycle gangs, Vagos. Based on Falco’s memoir, “Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws: My Infiltration of America’s Deadliest Biker Gangs”, the scripted series from A+E Networks (Vikings, Bates Motel) takes a rare look inside this historically infamous and violent biker gang through of the eyes of an undercover informant.

The California-based Vagos is a criminal motorcycle organisation involved in drug trafficking, arms smuggling, money laundering and murder and Falco initially took on the assignment out of self-preservation to avoid 20 years in prison on drug charges. Drawing on the wealth of material from Falco’s book, along with broader documented historical research of inter-gang rivalries, the series captures the reality of outlaw biker counter-culture: a world in which freedom is equated with the right to carry guns and trade drugs with impunity, a world in which respect can be earned through fear.

The first season is brought to life by a stellar cast led by Damon Runyan (CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery) as Charles Falco, along with Paulino Nunes (Designated Survivor, The Firm) James Cade (Orphan Black, Copper), Don Francks (La Femme Nikita, Hemlock Grove), Melanie Scrofano (Wyonna Earp, Designated Survivor), Ari Cohen (The Kennedys After Camelot, Smallville), and Patricia McKenzie (Cosmopolis, Charlie Jade).

Gandland Undercover: Season 1 is now available to purchase on DVD.
