USA is rolling out new series for the summer, including CIA drama/comedy Covert Affairs. Hoping to repeat the success of quirky spy intrigue shows Burn Notice and White Collar, USA will add Covert Affairs to the line-up this July. Piper Perabo stars as a newly minted CIA field agent, and Christopher Gorham (Ugly Betty, Out of Practice) costars as a blind ops tech who acts as her guide (yes, you read that right). Early buzz is positive--you can check out my full review and cast list on Covert Affairs at AC.
You can also see the trailer right here:
After her role as a sexy but angsty lesbian teen in Lost & Delirious, and a singing, dancing bar girl in Coyote Ugly, I'd always expected the pouty-lipped Piper Perabo to have a bigger career. She's been working steadily, but perhaps this might be a new break-out role for her. I'll post updates as soon as we get an actual start date for Covert Affairs.
P.S. Keep an eye out for Mohinder--Heroes star Sendil Ramamurthy is also joining the cast of Covert Affairs.
