Welcome to the Occupation

Welcome to the Occupation

Pablo Delgado and three other armed eco-terrorists have stormed a conference room in Mexico City and taken a group of oil executives hostage. But little does Delgado know, one of the oil executives, Megan Wilkins, is a deep-cover CIA agent. She's texted an emergency tweet and tipped off Langley of the situation. That's why Auggie hands Annie orders to lead a team of Special Ops down to Mexico and "resolve" the situation.

Jai's father, Henry Wilcox, pulls strings in order to get Annie and her team access to the oil company's building. Annie's cover will be an "American news crew from Eco-TV." But Annie is shocked to hear that her producer who will be accompanying her is Joan, and her cameraman is an even bigger surprise.

The team is to serve strictly as reconnaissance. They are to assess, establish proof-of-life, and evaluate the threat. No guns are to be fired if they want to maintain their cover. All in a day's work.

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.
