USA Orders Some Covert Affairs
The USA Network is adding another spy drama to its impressive roster. According to The Hollywood Reporter, USA has given a series order to Covert Affairs.
The network issued an 11-episode order for the series, which stars Piper Perabo as Annie Walker, a CIA trainee who suddenly gets promoted to field agent and is also dealing with a shady ex-boyfriend who could be a person of interest to her higher-ups.
The rest of the cast in the pilot are expected to return, including Christopher Gorham, Peter Gallagher, Kari Matchett and Anne Dudek. Eion Bailey, who played Walker's elusive boyfriend, is expected to guest star in at least one episode in the first season.
The network is waiting on their other pilot, Facing Kate, which is currently shooting now, to determine a release schedule.
