"Undercovers" is a new fall show that I cannot wait to see. This show premiers on NBC in September. J.J. Abrams brings more spies to the small screen. This time it is a married couple who are retired spies.
Samantha and Steven Bloom are retired spies who now make a living as caterers. When they are recruited by the CIA, the Blooms each accept the offer. The couple did not know one another who they were spies. Now they are back in the spy game and getting to know each other in a whole new way.
"Undercovers" stars Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as the Blooms who have been described as a modern day "Hart to Hart." I have seen a lot of previews and am looking forward to watching it on my Direct TV packages in California. At first I was looking forward to watching because it reminded me of J.J Abram's "Alias." Now I am convinced that "Undercovers" will be something fresh and not reminiscent of Abrams' former show.
This is my top pick this fall. Spy television shows are always fun, but "Undercovers" needs to stand out to make it. "Undercovers" will hopefully live up to expectations.
