Once upon a time I was obsessed with Alias. Still crying internally that it's over and Jennifer Garner is somewhere being domestic with an Affleck instead of disarming a bomb at a Society Ball in Croatia.
So I am pleased that J.J. Abrams has created another CIA based TV series.
Mr. & Mrs. Smith style!
With BLACK PEOPLE! <-- Selling Point.
And um... with VERY Beautiful Black people!
Undercovers stars the ridiculously perfect male specimen and seasoned actor that is the German born Boris Kodjoe and a gorgeous newcomer to American viewers, British bred Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Mekia Cox is also on the cast. If you own Michael Jackson's This Is It, like I do and for shame if you do not, then you will recognize her as one of the dancers selected for the few coveted spots on the tour.
I appreciate the casting. If it's purely a ploy schemed by producers intent on garnering interest from a specific demographic. Consider me intrigued.
