On top of the Fall presentation made by NBC Universal execs Jeff Gaspin and Angela Bromstad on Sunday, May 16, NBC has released some clips to introduce its new series including the anticipated project by J.J. Abrams, "Undercovers". Additionally, there's a behind the screen footage of the "Lost" producer talking about the spy series.
Described as a sexy, fun, action-packed spy drama, "Undercovers" wants to prove that marriage is still the world's most dangerous partnership. Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw star as the Blooms, married couple and former spies who are thrust back into action when one of their colleague goes MIA. Steven (Kodjoe) and Samantha (Mbatha-Raw) realize that this supercharged, undercover lifestyle provides the excitement and romance that their marriage has been missing.
The pilot is directed by Abrams, his first return to the position since doing "Lost". NBC puts the drama on Wednesdays at 8/7c before the two "Law & Order" franchises.
