NBC Picks Up New J.J. Abrams Spy Show!

J.J. Abrams, exectuive producer of Lost and Alias, has a new pilot coming to NBC!

The show features two married ex-CIA agents who get pulled back into the business. The show stars Boris Kodjoe (Soul Food) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Doctor Who) as Steven and Samantha Bloom.

The official pilot synopsis is below, via Entertainment Weekly.

“Outwardly, Steven Bloom (Kodjoe) and his wife, Samantha (Mbatha-Raw), are a typical married couple who own a small catering company in Los Angeles and are helped by Samantha’s easily frazzled younger sister, Lizzy (Jessica Parker Kennedy). Secretly, the duo were two of the CIA’s best spies until they fell in love on the job five years ago and retired. When fellow spy and friend Nash (Carter MacIntyre) goes missing while on the trail of a Russian arms dealer, the Blooms are reinstated by boss Carlton Shaw (Gerald McRaney) to locate and rescue Nash. The pair is thrust back into the world of espionage as they follow leads that span the globe — and Steven and Samantha realize that this supercharged, undercover lifestyle provides the excitement and romance that their marriage has been missing.”
