NBC Picks Up J.J. Abrams’ Undercovers For This Fall

NBC has picked up the J.J. Abrams conceived show Undercovers that will begin airing this fall and likely run into 2011.

The show circles a retired married couple who are pulled back to their former job as spies. Boris Kodjoe (Resident Evil: Afterlife) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Bonekickers) star as the couple, Steven and Samantha Bloom.

Abrams wrote the pilot and will direct it for NBC. The pick-up is the first for next season and no surprise considering its creator is responsible for helping hatch Lost, Alias, Fringe and the Star Trek reboot.
