About the Show

Undercovers is an American action spy drama television series created by J.J. Abrams and Josh Reims about a husband and wife spy team who are re-activated as CIA agents years after going into retirement to take on special missions the average agent cannot handle.

The series aired in the USA on NBC from 22 September to 29 December, 2010. There are 13 hour-long episodes in the series, although only 11 aired in the USA.

Undercovers premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel on Wednesday 16 November 2011, at 21h30. New episodes broadcast weekly.

Synopsis

From acclaimed writer/producer/director J.J. Abrams and executive producer/writer Josh Reims comes a sexy, fun, action-packed spy drama that proves once and for all that marriage is still the world's most dangerous partnership.

Outwardly, Steven Bloom (Boris Kodjoe) and his wife, Samantha (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), are a typical married couple who own and operate a small catering company in Los Angeles - with help from Samantha's easily frazzled handful of a sister, Lizzy (Mekia Cox).

Secretly, the duo were two of the best spies the CIA had ever known, until they fell in love on the job five years ago and retired.

When fellow spy and good friend Leo Nash (Carter MacIntyre) goes missing while on the trail of a Russian arms dealer, the Blooms are reinstated by boss and agency liaison, Carlton Shaw (Gerald McRaney), to locate and rescue Nash.

With assistance from resourceful CIA field agent Bill Hoyt (Ben Schwartz), whose professional admiration for Steven isn't hard to miss, the pair is thrust back into the world of espionage, disguises and hand-to-hand combat.

Following leads that take them to cities spanning the globe, Steven and Samantha quickly realise that perhaps this supercharged, undercover lifestyle provides exactly the kind of excitement and romance that their marriage has been missing.

Undercovers is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Abrams directed the pilot and co-wrote it, along with Reims. They also serve as executive producers along with Bryan Burk.
