If done right, “Covert Affairs” could be the female version of the USA Network’s “Burn Notice”. I’m pretty sure that’s what the suits are hoping, and there’s a fine line to walk there, but here’s hoping “Covert Affairs” manages it. Check out some images of the cast and crew from the upcoming show, due out next month. And for those who missed it, check out video promos for the show here.
New jobs are tough — especially when your new employer is the CIA. Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) is fluent in six languages, has traveled the world and is besting her fellow CIA trainees in every test. But that doesn’t explain why she’s suddenly summoned by CIA headquarters to report for active duty as a field operative one month before her training is over. She doesn’t know there may be something — or someone — from her past that her CIA bosses are really after.
Annie’s unofficial guide to the CIA is Auggie Anderson (Christopher Gorham), a tech ops expert who was blinded while on assignment. As Annie navigates this new world of intrigue, danger and bureaucratic red tape, Auggie is there to make sure this quick study won’t be kept in the dark for long.
Also starring Peter Gallagher, Kari Matchett, Sendhil Ramamurthy and Anne Dudek.
“Covert Affairs” premieres on July 13, 2010 on the USA Network.
