Spoilers for TVB Drama “Line Walker”
Line Walker <使徒行者> sets a new boundary for undercover cop thrillers. The TVB drama stars critically acclaimed actors such as Michael Miu (苗僑偉), Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), Raymond Lam (林峯), and Elena Kong (江美儀).
Chief Inspector Hong Do Hang (Au Sui Wai) of the Criminal Investigation Bureau dispatched five undercover cops to infiltrate various triads in the city. However, Hang later passed away and the police lost contact with the undercover cops. Official police records of these cops were wiped out. Hang’s partner and good friend, Chief Inspector Cheuk Hoi (Michael Miu), decides to locate all five of these undercover agents and save them from the triad world.
From a clue left behind by Hang, Hoi finds his first undercover Ting Siu Ka (Charmaine Sheh). Siu Ka owns a pedicure spa as a cover-up and her initial mission was to infiltrate an illegal bookmaking organization and collect evidence of its misdeeds. In dire need of help, Hoi sends Siu Ka out on a second mission – to find the remaining four undercover cops. Through their collaboration, Siu Ka and Hoi become close friends.
To complete her mission, Siu Ka goes against all odds to befriend Bao Seed (Raymond Lam), a rising star within the triad. Through Bao Seed, Siu Ka meets his big boss Tam Foon Hei (Benz Hui), who was just released from prison. Kobe Lin (Sammy Sum) serves as Foon Hei’s young financial expert. With the help of Siu Ka, Bao Seed rises even quicker in the triad ranks. Through Siu Ka’s information, Hoi learns that Bao Seed and Kobe may also be the undercover cops who were sent to infiltrate Foon Hei’s organization by Hang.
Suspicious with Hoi’s fast promotion within the force, ICAC officer Mok Sin Yan (Sharon Chan) has been keeping Hoi’s record on check. She has been secretly investigating him since the death of Hang. Hoi, aware that Sin Yan is monitoring him, checks on Sin Yan’s investigative methods. In his attempt, he accidentally discovers a dark family secret – Sin Yan’s elder sister, Katie Mok (Elena Kong) has been suffering physical abuse from her husband for many years.
Line Walker is slated to premiere in Hong Kong on August 25.
