The international espionage drama series, Covert Affairs, returns for an all-new, action-packed fifth season. The series stars Piper Perabo (Looper), Christopher Gorham (Ugly Betty), Peter Gallagher (The O.C.), Kari Matchett (Invasion), Hill Harper (CSI: NY) and new series regular, Nic Bishop (Body of Proof).
In the critically-acclaimed spy drama series, Perabo stars as Annie Walker, a young CIA operative whose exceptional linguistic skills and killer instinct make her invaluable to the Agency.
Season 5 of the series picks up with Annie returning to the Agency after having faked her death to go deep undercover to find a traitor to the CIA.
This season examines the price Annie will have to pay for this risky maneuver and the implications it will have on her relationships – both personally and professionally – as she attempts to re-emerge into the world she once knew.
Guest stars include Amy Jo Johnson (Flashpoint), Michael A. Goorjian (Party of Five), Perrey Reeves (Entourage), Max Martini (Captain Phillips) and Nazneen Contractor (Star Trek Into Darkness).
From Universal Cable Productions, Covert Affairs was created, written and executive produced by Matt Corman and Chris Ord, and is executive produced by Doug Liman (Suits, the Bourne trilogy, Mr. and Mrs. Smith), David Bartis (Suits, The O.C.) and Gene Klein (Suits) through Hypnotic.
Stephen Kay (Sons of Anarchy), Sean Ryerson (Bait, Beyond Rangoon), Stephen Hootstein (What About Brian) and Henry Alonso Myers (Ugly Betty, Chuck) also serve as executive producers.
