Covert Affairs (USA Network 2010-2014, Piper Perabo, Christopher Gorham)

Published

on

Crime, spy drama series Covert Affairs harks back to the golden age of TV with it’s plot line about Annie Walker, a CIA trainee who is drafted into the covert Domestic Protection Division. Helped by blind colleague Auggie Anderson, Annie to keep her new role secret and as far as everyone outside the job is concerned she works for the Smithsonian Museum.

From USA’s press release, September 2014… USA announced today that its hit original drama series WHITE COLLAR will air its sixth and final season beginning Thursday, November 6 at 9/8c, followed by the return of the international espionage drama, COVERT AFFAIRS, at 10/9c. From Fox Television Studios and creator Jeff Eastin (GRACELAND), WHITE COLLAR returns with EMMY(R) nominee Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay, as well as Tiffani Thiessen, Willie Garson, Sharif Atkins and Marsha Thomason. Universal Cable Production’s COVERT AFFAIRS stars Golden Globe(R) nominee Piper Perabo (“Looper”), Christopher Gorham (“Ugly Betty”), Peter Gallagher (“The O.C.”), Kari Matchett (“Invasion”), Hill Harper (“CSI: NY”) and new series regular, Nic Bishop (“Body of Proof”). In the globe-trotting drama series, Perabo stars as Annie Walker, a young CIA operative whose exceptional linguistic skills and killer instinct make her invaluable to the Agency. After a whirlwind international exploration at the start of the season, Annie Walker (Perabo) finally has her sights set on the culprit behind the Chicago CIA facility bombing – Georgian diplomat Aleksandre Belenko (guest star Shawn Doyle). We resume the season with Annie and Ryan’s (Bishop) relationship in a delicate balance. Annie continues working outside the CIA as a private contractor but the task of bringing Belenko to justice will prove to be a challenge. She’ll have to throw out the Langley playbook as she begins her investigation into his motives – and more importantly – discovers who else is locked in his sights. Meanwhile, Auggie (Gorham) begins to uncover a mysterious connection between his past and Belenko’s targets, while Calder (Harper) recruits Sydney (guest star Nazneen Contractor) to infiltrate the Russian Embassy and Joan (Matchett) protects a secret that could destroy her career.

Copper’s End (ITV 1971, Bill Owen, Josephine Tewson)

Sitcom Coppers End was very much from the Will Hay  (and Ask A Policeman in particular) school of comedy; When the series began the boys at the station led by Sergeant Stan Short, had the art of doing nothing down to a tee, so much so that they were even able to hire out their squad car for all manner of weddings, driving lessons and even stock car racing. All until the arrival of the super efficient W.P.S. Penny Pringle that is.
