USA NETWORK PREMIERES A NEW ORIGINAL SERIES “COVERT AFFAIRS” TUESDAY, JULY 13 AT 10/9c
A New Series From the Producers of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” and the Producer of the Bourne Trilogy
Continuing to deliver powerful weekday blocks of originals, USA Network promises to maintain its position as the Network with the most exciting summer shows when it presents the newest original series in the line-up, COVERT AFFAIRS starring Piper Perabo (“Coyote Ugly,” “Beverly Hills Chihuahua”), Christopher Gorham (“Ugly Betty,” “Jake 2.0”), Peter Gallagher (“The O.C.,” “American Beauty”), Kari Matchett (“Invasion”), Anne Dudek (“House,” “Mad Men”) and Sendhil Ramamurthy (“Heroes,” “It’s a Wonderful Afterlife”). COVERT AFFAIRS will premiere on Tuesday, July 13 at 10/9c. USA’s new hit series, WHITE COLLAR, will serve as the show’s lead-in at 9/8c. In COVERT AFFAIRS, we meet Annie Walker (Perabo), a young CIA trainee who is suddenly thrust into the inner sanctum of the agency after being promoted to field operative. While it appears that she has been hand-picked for her exceptional linguistic skills, it may be something from her past that her CIA bosses are really after. Gorham plays Auggie Anderson, a CIA military intelligence agent, blinded while on assignment, and Annie's guide in this world of bureaucracy, excitement and intrigue. Gallagher is Arthur Campbell, the formidable director of Clandestine Services for the CIA. Dudek plays Danielle, a married mother of two and Annie’s older sister who knows nothing of her life as a spy. Matchett plays Joan, head of the CIA’s Domestic Protection Division...and Arthur’s wife. In episode two, Ramamurthy joins the show as Jai Wilcox, an agent with a rich family history within the walls of the CIA. From Universal Cable Productions, COVERT AFFAIRS is executive produced by Doug Liman (the “Bourne” trilogy, “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” “The O.C.”) and David Bartis (“The O.C.,” “The Heist”) through Dutch Oven and written and co-executive produced by Matt Corman (“Deck the Halls”) and Chris Ord (“Deck the Halls”). James Parriott (Grey's Anatomy," "Ugly Betty") executive produces. Jonathan Glassner ("Stargate SG-1," "CSI: Miami") is co-executive producer and director. Tim Matheson (USA’s BURN NOTICE, PSYCH, “Criminal Minds”) directed the pilot.
