- "Go over the wall and find the car on the lot. Only the principal actors and stunt people are authorized to go near it, so, you could get in wardrobe and play the part, or...try something else. When you're out of there, and clear of studio security, call me."
- ― Molly Schultz
Franklin approaches the Backlot City movie studio in Downtown Los Santos. Once there, he calls Molly Schultz who directs him to his current target, the famous movie car JB 700. Molly informs Franklin that only actors and stunt people are authorized to be on the lot, so he will need to either steal Brandon Roberts's costume or find some other way to approach the car.
Franklin enters the lot. He sneaks up on Brandon and knocks him out with a stealth attack. Franklin drags Brandon into a nearby trailer and there dons Brandon's white tuxedo. From there, Franklin approaches the set where the JB 700 is awaiting filming and is occupied by an actress. If Franklin loiters around the shot for too long, the security will attack. They will also attack immediately after Franklin enters the car. Franklin drives out of the lot, the actress in the passenger seat yelling at him and occasionally grabbing the wheel, which results in the JB 700 veering off to the side. Franklin uses the JB 700's spike strips to disable the three studio security cars following him, then uses the car's ejector button to get rid of the actress. When he has removed all pursuers and witnesses, Franklin calls Molly, who tells him to take the car to Hayes Auto. Molly also tells Franklin to be on the lookout for a stranger who seems to be watching the garage.
When Franklin arrives at the lockup, he meets Weston. Suddenly, Lamar Davis appears. Weston is excited by Lamar's appearance and encourages Franklin to include Lamar in the next heist. Franklin disparages the suggestion. He leaves the garage alone.

Daily Globe Newspaper
"In the most audacious piece of action drama to grace the Richards Majestic movie lot in many a year, a car custom-modified for upcoming spy thriller 'Deep Inside' was stolen from under the nose of director Anton Beaudelaire during filming. Mr Beaudelaire is in the middle of a two picture deal with the studio and is dividing his time between "Deep Inside' and 'Meltdown'. The LSPD and Richards Majestic are yet to release an official statement but reports indicate injuries, and possible casualties, but these are still unconfirmed. The loss of the car, worth millions of dollars, comes as another blow to Solomon Richards who has already been forced to drastically slash the budget on both "Deep Inside' and his financial crisis epic 'Meltdown'."
- Devin Weston - "Good work again, slick. Keep it up - you know I'll look after you. Stick with Team Weston and you'll always be a winner."
- Andre Barnes - "Is it true what they saying about you working as a male geisha for white boys thse days?"
- @radjamieslck - "guy that stole the jb700 from the canyon studios set is my fuckin hero man those trick secret agent cars shoot out spikes and shit SOOOOOO awesome"
- @mouskater - ""Actor found unconscious in trailer on movie set" since when was that news?"
- @lonnie_fig3 - "Check this out! Just saw a woman being ejected from a car! I think she was famous too!"
- The mission's name is another of Rockstar's sexual puns, as well as a play on the fact Franklin is going 'deep undercover' by posing as an actor to steal the car.
- During the mission, Franklin's female passenger is launched out of the car's roof with an ejector seat. This is an obvious reference to James Bond, specifically the film Goldfinger, in which Bond drives an Aston Martin DB5 (on which the JB 700 is based) which features a passenger ejector seat and several other gadgets, just like the car in the game.
- The car's name is a direct reference to Bond: JB for his initials, and his code number 007 is rearranged as 700.
- After this mission, the JB 700 will be available to buy via the website Legendarymotorsport.net.
- This mission and Pack Man, are the only missions in the campaign that the player can drive the JB 700, after this, the car is only available if you buy it via internet. The JB 700 outside this mission and Pack Man also will not have the spike strip gadgets or the ejector button.
- To the right of the car park, the player can find Anton Beaudelaire directing Meltdown on greenscreen. If Franklin comes too close to the set or kills Anton or Milton McIlroy, security will be alerted and the mission will fail. They will disappear after the player takes Brandon's clothes.
- The way the woman attempts to escape Franklin by grabbing the steering wheel is extremely similar to how Gracie Ancelotti tries to escape Niko Bellic in the pink Feltzer during the mission I'll Take Her....
- Even if the player does not eject the actress with the ejection seat, there is still going to be a bleet after the mission, saying that the actress was ejected.
- Although Michael might have free access to Backlot City by this point (upon completing "Mr. Richards"), this does not apply to the other protagonists, hence Franklin's need for a disguise.
- After the mission ends, Franklin will continue to wear the unique white tuxedo. Unfortunately, the outfit cannot be kept, but Franklin will be shown wearing it (occasionally with the bowtie removed) until his clothes are changed by the player, by a mission, or by swapping characters. The tux will be seen hanging in Franklin's closet. However, he can purchase a black tux from Ponsonbys.
- This white tuxedo can be worn again after the player beats the storyline.
- As with other Devin missions, although it's mentioned that the vehicle needs to be kept in good condition, the game doesn't actually penalize you if the JB 700 takes some damage while driving back to the garage (there's a good chance it may get rammed by pursuing police vehicles, for example). The "Not a Scratch" criteria can still be met even if the car gets noticeably banged up.
- The score that plays during this mission is slightly similar to the 007 theme.
