NBC has just announced its first pick up for the 2010-2011 season. J.J. Abrams’ CIA pilot, “Undercovers.” The hour-long pilot stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Boris Kodjoe who play a married couple retired from the CIA but are reinstated after running a quiet catering business for more than five years.
“J.J. has delivered another signature series along with our partners at Warner Bros and we couldn’t be happier,” Jeff Gaspin, Chairman of NBC Universal Television Entertainment, said. The pick up probably has a lot to do with Abrams’ track record with shows like “Lost”, “Fringe and “Alias”, making the full season order no surprise.
