Undercovers

"Now that we have a sexy, happily married black couple in the White House, a sexy, happily married black couple has magically appeared in a non-sitcom on primetime TV." - Jezebel DOTcom




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!


I'm vain.
Sue me. 

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.
