From acclaimed writer/producer/director J.J. Abrams ("Star Trek," "Fringe," "Lost," "Alias") and executive producer/writer Josh Reims ("Brothers and Sisters," "What About Brian") comes "Undercovers," 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, "Tyler Perry's Madea's Family Vacation") and his wife, Samantha (Gugu Mbatha-Raw, "Dr. Who"), are a typical married couple who own and operate a small catering company in Los Angeles. 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") 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.
The pair suddenly is thrust back into the world of espionage, disguises and hand-to-hand combat in adventures that span 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.
