NBC Officially Gets Into Bed with J.J. Abrams

Good News: In a no-brainer of epic proportions, NBC has issued its first scripted series pickup for the 2010-2011 season to UNDERCOVERS, the high-anticipated new drama from J.J. Abrams and Josh Reims.

Better News: In a refreshing change of pace, a big-budgeted network drama doesn’t feature a slew of really good looking white people, but rather Boris Kodjoe (SOUL FOOD) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (DOCTOR WHO) as married ex-CIA agents who get thrust back into the world of espionage when their friend Nash (Carter Macintyre) goes missing while on the trail of a Russian arms dealer.

Best News of All: If all goes according to [our] plan, Monday nights just got a helluva lot hotter thanks to the perfect pairing of CHUCK and UNDERCOVERS. We’re just sayin’

    Not to rain on your parade, but do you seriously think this thing stands even a slim chance of success? I loved Alias and J.J., but color me very skeptical.
