Series Premiere: Undercovers Starring Boris Kodjoe And Gugu Mbatha-Raw

Written By: MIM!Tonight, acclaimed writer/producer/director JJ Abrams' sexy spy action drama Undercovers, starring leading man Boris Kodjoe (as Steven Bloom) and leading lady Gugu Mbatha-Raw (as Samantha Bloom), premiers on NBC at 8 p.m. According to the press release, the premise of the show is:
Outwardly, Steven Bloom (Boris Kodjoe, Tyler Perry's Madea's Family Reunion, Soul Food, Resident Evil: Afterlife) and his wife, Samantha (Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Dr. Who, Bonekickers), 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, 90210, This Is It). 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, American Heiress, Nip/Tuck) goes missing while on the trail of a Russian arms dealer, the Blooms are reinstated by boss and agency liaison, Carlton Shaw (Gerald McRaney, Deadwood, Jericho), to locate and rescue Nash. With assistance from resourceful CIA field agent Bill Hoyt (Ben Schwartz, Parks and Recreation, Bronx World Travelers), 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 realize that perhaps this supercharged, undercover lifestyle provides exactly the kind of excitement and romance that their marriage has been missing.
We'll be tuning in!
