What's the Frequency, Kenneth?

What's the Frequency, Kenneth?

While Annie keeps up her appearance as a Smithsonian employee, a British man named Kenneth Martin stealthily steals her wallet so that he can pass along a message to her to meet him later. When she does, he proposes that she work for England's own spy agency: MI6. After talking it over with the Agency, Joan has her suspicions about Martin but wants Annie to accept the offer and find out why the U.K. has spies hanging around the Smithsonian Institute.

Martin's first assignment for Annie is to get him access to Karim Bichri, a Smithsonian Institute art restorer. But getting into to Bichri's workplace will be harder than it looks. Annie and Henry will have to work after hours at the museum if they're to find out whether Bichri is engaging in extra-curricular activities.

Meanwhile, Jai's father, Henry Wilcox, advises him to reopen a dormant operation called "Ministry." When Jai approaches Hadley, the man who drafted the operation's original protocol, he courts Hadley with the promise of higher pay and a promotion if he can get the operation back off the ground and run it. Jai authorizes the operation's team to head to Bolivia and infiltrate the country's communication infrastructure. But is this a legitimate campaign or is Jai Wilcox just trying to gain leverage on Arthur Campbell?

About Covert Affairs

The critically acclaimed original, COVERT AFFAIRS, follows the pursuits of CIA operative Annie Walker, whose exceptional linguistic skills and killer instinct take her on dangerous top-secret assignments around the globe. Last season, Annie traveled to Russia in pursuit of her former boss turned double agent Lena Smith (guest star Sarah Clarke), who shot her twice in the chest and killed Simon (guest star Richard Coyle), an asset and the man Annie was falling in love with. Thanks to a dramatic rescue led by Auggie (Christopher Gorham), Annie escaped her Russian prison cell and returned home. Back in the States, Auggie made a dramatic, long-awaited move when he finally kissed Annie resulting in the reveal of their romantic feelings for one another. 

Season four picks up with even more complications at the agency, when Annie aligns with the infamous former head of the Department of Clandestine Services, Henry Wilcox (guest star Gregory Itzin), in a dangerous, undercover mission that puts those closest to her in jeopardy. Hill Harper will play Calder Michaels, an ambitious CIA station chief based in Latin America.  Intelligent, charismatic and a bit cocky, Michaels ascended to a very high position at a relatively young age and is plotting his way into a bigger position back in Washington. In his journey for greater power, he will attempt to make Annie and Auggie his allies, but his questionable actions will cause them to doubt his intentions.  Recurring guest stars this season will include Latin telenovela star Manolo Cardona (“Beverly Hills Chihuahua”) and Michelle Ryan (“Bionic Woman”). COVERT AFFAIRS is shot on location in Toronto, ON, and international shooting locations this season include Medellín, Columbia; Lyon, France; Rome, Italy; Vienna, Austria; Frankfurt, Germany; Copenhagen, Denmark and Taipei, Taiwan.
