US spy series Covert Affairs begins on Seven soon.
The drama stars Piper Perabo as Annie Walker, a young CIA trainee who is thrust into the inner sanctum of the agency when she is unexpectedly promoted to field operative. While it appears that she has been plucked from obscurity for her exceptional linguistic skills, there may be something or someone from her past that her CIA bosses are really after.
The cast also features Christopher Gorman (Ugly Betty), Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes) and, in a recurring role, Peter Gallagher (The OC).
The series is produced by Doug Liman (Go, The Bourne Identity, The OC), David Bartis (The OC, Knight Rider) and Jonathan Glassner (Stargate SG-1).
Produced for the USA Network, it only premiered in the US in July where 4 episodes, including the Pilot, have aired.
It premieres 9:30pm Monday August 16.
