Acclaimed writer/producer/director J.J. Abrams serves as co-writer, executive producer – and also directs, his first direction of a TV pilot since Lost, with executive producer/writer Josh Reims (Brothers and Sisters).

Outwardly, Steven Bloom (Boris Kodjoe) and his wife, Samantha (Gugu 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 lifestyle provides the excitement and romance that their marriage has been missing.

A new J.J. show is always a good thing and it's nice to see NBC finally living up to their 'more colorful' slogan. Coming wednesdays this fall.
