Episode 1 – Abacus
A dead agent catapults Action Team into an Austrian adventure, as they try and protect an international charity conference from a deadly attack. But who can be trusted and what is the secret of ‘Abacus’?
Series Overview 
Action Team is a spoof comedy action thriller series following the exploits of a special branch of MI6. The team is made up of four secret agents; the heroic Logan Mann, mix martial arts and bomb expert Monica Lang, crack sniper Graham Hooper and Huxley, who’s just on work experience. They are overseen by the straight shooting head of operations Ruth Brooks and her assistant called Anne.
In this first series Action Team are faced with an evil network masterminded by Vladimir Schevchenko, an attention seeking leader of a tiny republic of Russia, that no one has heard of, who is as inept as he is unpredictable.
