About the Show
In "Covert Affairs," Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) is a young CIA trainee who is suddenly thrust into the inner sanctum of the agency after being promoted to field operative. While it appears that she has been hand-picked for her exceptional linguistic skills, it may be something from her past that her CIA bosses are really after.
Christopher Gorham plays Auggie Anderson, a CIA military intelligence agent who was blinded while on assignment, and now is Annie's guide in the world of bureaucracy, excitement and intrigue. Peter Gallagher is Arthur Campbell, the formidable director of Clandestine Services for the CIA. Kari Matchett plays Joan, head of the CIA's Domestic Protection Division -- and Arthur's wife. Anne Dudek plays Danielle, a married mother of two and Annie's older sister who knows nothing of life as a spy.
In the second episode, Sendhil Ramamurthy joins the show as Jai Wilcox, an agent with a rich family history within the walls of the CIA.
"Covert Affairs" is produced by Universal Cable Productions. David Bartis, Doug Liman and James Parriott are the executive producers.
