USA NETWORK GREENLIGHTS PILOT “COVERT AFFAIRS”

LOS ANGELES, California July 30, 2009 – USA Network has given a green light to the pilot COVERT AFFAIRS. A Universal Cable Productions original, COVERT AFFAIRS is executive produced by Dave Bartis and Doug Liman through Dutch Oven and written and co-executive produced by Matt Corman and Chris Ord. The announcement was made today by Jackie de Crinis, USA’s senior program executive.

“We are thrilled to be collaborating with Dutch Oven on COVERT AFFAIRS, a show with an exciting backdrop of action-packed suspense and an entertaining, character-driven premise that fits so perfectly into the USA brand,” said de Crinis.

Covert Affairs centers on a young CIA trainee, Annie Walker (Piper Perabo), mysteriously summoned to headquarters for duty as field operative. While Annie believes she’s been promoted for her exceptional linguistic skills, there may be something or someone from her past that her CIA bosses are really after. Christopher Gorham plays Auggie Anderson, a CIA military intelligence agent who was blinded while on assignment and is Annie’s guide in this world of bureaucracy, excitement and intrigue.

From Universal Cable Productions, COVERT AFFAIRS stars Piper Perabo (“Coyote Ugly,” “Cheaper by the Dozen,” “Beverly Hills Chihuahua”). Written and co-executive produced by Matt Corman (“Deck the Halls”) and Chris Ord (“Deck the Halls”). Dave Bartis (“Knight Rider”) and Doug Liman (“Knight Rider,” the “Bourne” trilogy, “Heist”) are Executive Producers through their company, Dutch Oven.
