The Hollywood Reporter says that Piper Perabo has landed the lead role in USA Network’s spy thriller “Covert Affairs.”
Written by Matt Corman and Chris Ord, “Affairs” centers on Annie Walker (Perabo), a CIA trainee who speaks six languages and excels at any endeavor she undertakes.
Walker joins the CIA while still reeling over a mysterious ex-boyfriend who appears to be of particular interest to her new bosses. She vows never to let herself be hurt again, but that proves to be a tall order.
With the lead role cast, attention now shifts to finding an actor to play Auggie Anderson, a blind tech expert who assists Walker in her assignments.
