Covert Affairs : new USA Network Show

premieres July 13th (Tuesday Nights)

Piper Perabo who I know from "Coyote Ugly" "Lost and Delirious" and the 2000 live action movie "Rocky and Bullwinkle" stars.
Christopher Gorham (Jake 2.0, Ugly Betty, and Out of Practice)
Sendhil Ramamurthy (Mohinder on Heroes)
Peter Gallagher (The O.C. among other notable work)

New jobs are tough- especially when your new employer is the CIA. Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) is fluent in six languages, has traveled all over the world and is besting her fellow CIA trainees in every test, but that doesn't explain why she's suddenly summoned by CIA headquarters to report for active duty as a field operative a month before her training is over. What she doesn't know is there may be something-or someone-from her past that her CIA bosses are really after. With the help of Auggie Anderson (Christopher Gorham), a tech ops expert who was blinded while on assignment and is Annie's unofficial guide to this inscrutable world filled with intrigue, danger, and bureaucratic red tape, this quick study won't be kept in the dark for long.

another CIA show, but pretty much everything the USA Network brings on is gold right now. With the cast and premise, no matter if the creators, are unknown, I expect this to be another good show. And they even got to direct (the pilot I imagine) Tim Matheson, who has directed and appeared on some of their shows in recent years.
