Dig for Fire

Dig for Hire Covert Affairs

Upon her return from Columbia, Annie gets a surprise visit from Arthur, disgraced following his recent revelation of infidelity and resignation from the CIA. Determined to protect his secret connection to terrorist Teo Braga—and most of all to protect Joan from being damaged by it—Arthur asks Annie and Auggie to keep what they know to themselves and help figure out Henry’s endgame.

Their investigation soon turns up a connection between Henry and Amstar Oil, an energy company whose business in Columbia has been hurt by recent bombings led by Teo and his terror group. A phone tap also reveals that Henry has an inside man at the CIA feeding him intel, but the mole’s identity remains a mystery.

Meanwhile, after Joan asks Auggie to look into Arthur’s affair, Auggie discovers that the whole thing was a sham, made up to deflect attention from Arthur’s connection to Teo and protect Joan. It looks like Arthur’s ruse is working: after Joan aces a polygraph, she learns from former flame Seth Newman that she’s up for Arthur’s job as DCS. But even more surprisingly, as Annie and Auggie overhear the conversation between Seth and Joan they make a startling discovery: Seth is the mole.

Knowing he has dinner plans with Joan, Annie, Auggie and Arthur decide that Annie should break into Seth’s house to try to find proof of his link to Henry. Unfortunately, they can’t anticipate that Joan might change her mind, sending Seth home early enough to catch Annie snooping. Or that when he does, he’ll do whatever it takes to prevent her from escaping with evidence that could destroy his life…

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.
