Churchill's Secret Agents: The New Recruits (originally released in the UK as Secret Agent Selection: WW2) is an American/British reality competition television program released by Netflix on June 29, 2018.
In 1940, during the height of World War II conflict in Europe, British Minister of Economic Warfare Hugh Dalton founded the Special Operations Executive. The SOE was a secret organization responsible for espionage and reconnaissance during wartime efforts. The organization would take everyday citizens from all backgrounds and walks of life and put them through rigorous training to extract the traits necessary for a secret agent.
Now, a group of 14 modern day recruits will be put through the same rigorous testing as those agents in 1940 to determine if they would have had what it took to be an agent of SOE.
