Non-official cover is a term used in espionage for agents or operatives who assume covert roles without ties to the government for which they work. Such operatives are typically abbreviated as a NOC pronounced ‘knock’.
Betrayed from within his Division, his network of operatives all murdered, a Latino Special Operations Officer enters the seedy world of John le Carre and the dark manipulation of governments to survive and expose the truth.
NOC is The Fugitive meets Homeland. The series main character, VICTOR VALEZ, is a Paramilitary Operations Officer in the Special Activities Division (SAD) of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service responsible for covert operations known as ‘special activities’. Considered the most secretive special operations force in the US, SAD conducts the deniable psychological operations known as ‘black propaganda’ as well as ‘covert influence’ to effect political change as an important part of any Administration’s foreign policy. NOC will be a contemporary series dramatizing fictional and current political issues.
Betrayed and framed from within SAD, Velaz is forced to operate outside its protection. Although from the military elite, the underground is the landscape Valez lives in. Working outside of the law assisted by a handful of loyal friends, Valez, stalks the dark manipulation of Governments and his betrayers as they pursue his elimination.
