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 are Kari Matchett, Anne Dudek and Sendhil Ramamurthy, with special guest star Peter Gallagher.
From Universal Cable Productions, Covert Affairs is executive produced by Doug Liman and David Bartis through Hypnotic and written and co-executive produced by Matt Corman and Chris Ord.
