Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Previously adapted for German television as Operation Schmetterling, the four-part British miniseries The Writing on the Wall starred Bill Paterson in the central role of Bull. A government agent working on behalf of NATO, Bull found himself up to his neck in conspiracies and double-crosses as he tried to solve a political kidnapping. American actor Dennis Haysbert, best known for his recurring appearances as the imperiled presidential candidate in the Fox Network series 24, was seen as Sullivan. The Writing on the Wall made its first British TV appearance in 1996.
