Originally telecast as a single two-hour TV movie, the pilot episode of Wiseguy has since been re-edited as two one-hour episodes for syndication. In the concluding episode, ex-con Vinnie Terranova (Ken Wahl) has befriended crime boss Sonny Steelgrave (Ray Sharkey) and has been invited to accept a lower-level job with the Steelgrave "family." Little does Sonny realize that Vinnie is actually a federal undercover agent: Indeed, no one except Vinnie's bosses at the OCB are aware of his double life, not even his own mother or brother. Unfortunately, Sonny's right-hand man Jerry Grecco (Robert Miranda) has his doubts about Vinnie, obliging Sonny to force his new employee to prove his loyalty--by shooting a fellow Fed.
