Premiering in the fall, Undercovers is receiving more attention than most new shows for two reasons:
- It's co-written by J.J. Abrams, who will also direct the pilot episode.
- It will air on NBC and it actually looking promising.
As you digest that second, astounding fact, consider the latest show casting news: Carter MacIntyre will play a CIA agent on the series.
His character has a drinking problem and goes missing while following a Russian arms dealer.
Might this development lead to the reactivation of Steven (Boris Kodjoe) and Samantha (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), a husband and wife that return to work for the CIA after years of retirement? We'll find out in a few months.
MacIntyre has appeared in episodes of Bones and The Mentalist. He joins a cast that includes the aforementioned actors, along with Gerald McRaney, Jessica Parker Kennedy and Ben Schwartz.
