The Undercover; Mary Shanley Story

A pioneer for females in law enforcement, Mary Shanley joined the NYPD in 1931, quickly becoming a Gotham all-star and tabloid sensation. During her 30-year career, she worked undercover to achieve a staggering 1000 career arrests, became the 4th woman in history to make detective 1st grade, and then nearly lost it all. Capturing her at a major crossroads of career, identity, and love–her most elusive culprit of all–Undercover: The Mary Shanley Story grapples with the legend of “Dead Shot Mary,” a trail blazer, a maverick, and a true New York original.
