Golden Globe Award-winning actress Jennifer Garner is Sydney Bristow. Syd's not exactly your average grad student. Her life might appear normal, but she's hiding a secret life working as a spy for the CIA.
Sydney's world is turned upside down when she learns she may work for the very enemy she thought she was fighting. Now she's entangled in a covert lifestyle where she is forced to question the allegiances of everyone, including those closest to her.
Based on the Israeli version called "Prisoners of War." A U.S. soldier who was thought to have been killed in Iraq over 8 years ago who is now being questioned as to whether he is a member of a sleeper cell sent to cause a terrorist attack. Claire Danes stars in this Showtime pilot as a CIA agent with bipolar disorder who comes to suspect that an Afghanistan war hero who has returned home after years as a POW might be part of a terrorist plot. Expect a psychological thriller with a strong focus on character development.
Bill Cosby and Robert Culp star as two of the hippest secret agents in television history in I-Spy. Travelling to exotic locales while posing as a tennis pro and his trainer, intelligence operatives Kelly Robinson (Culp) and Alexander Scott (Cosby) take on the espionage community with both grit and lighthearted banter.
Barry Sonnenfeld (from the movie "Men in Black") served as executive producer for this lighthearted espionage show about a cocky spy who teamed with two by-the-book agents to battle global menaces. It had nothing in common with Patrick McGoohan's 1960s cult hit "Secret Agent", except for its theme song, updated here by Supreme Beings of Leisure.
