X Company is a relatively new television series created by Stephanie Morgenstern (Sailor Venus #1) and her partner Mark Ellis. The series is about a secret organization in World War II era.
Here the series description from IMDb:
X COMPANY is an emotionally-driven character drama, set in the thrilling and dangerous world of WWII espionage and covert operations. It follows the stories of five highly skilled young recruits – Canadian, American and British – torn from their ordinary lives to train as agents in an ultra-secret facility on the shores of Lake Ontario. These agents parachute behind enemy lines, where they’re fair game for torture and execution. From elegant hotels to hellholes in the field, it’s one risky operation after another, masterminded by the brains of Camp X.
It’s worth noting that Camp X was a real spy facility, the first in North America, and trained hundreds of spies. The series inspired by Camp X (which includes many historically accurate details) airs on CBC on Wednesdays at 9pm eastern, and you can watch full episodes of X Company on the CBC website.
In episode 5, Jill Frappier (Luna) plays the role of Lisette. She’s seen at the beginning of the episode, just after the title screen, talking on the train to two of the main characters who have gone undercover as a married couple as a means to enter a town in France where young girls are disappearing.
