Synopsis

With a funky sense of style, a smooth way with the ladies and an absolute hunger for justice, Undercover Brother has lived by his own rules since the day he heard his first Parliament Funkadelic groove. Fueled by the funk, he became the man he is today--Robin Hood of the 'hood, ready to step in, give the downtrodden a hand and fight the powers-that-be. With his Bruce Lee moves, Cadillac attitude and an arsenal of outrageous disguises and gadgets, he is patiently waiting for that one really heavy mission. He known it's coming... A sinister underground movement has begun, unleashing a terrifying top-secret weapon: an irresistibly packaged psycho-hallucinogenic drug that will reduce the entire population to mindless zombies. However, a dedicated group of Good Guys, know as the B.R.O.T.H.E.R.H.O.O.D., has been tracking their activities and is now braced for a showdown. But they know that a fight this big means they must produce their own secret weapon: the one crime fighter cool enough to infiltrate the enemy on the streets or in between the sheets. And thus, Undercover Brother trades in his Afro, shades and platforms for khakis, horn-rims and penny loafers to pose as preppy nerd Anton Jackson at a multinational conglomerate. But while he and his sassy partner Sistah Sistah Girl try to find out What's Going On, the leader's ruthless right arm, Mr. Feather, discovers the conspiracy's sexy secret weapon, Penelope Snow.
