Undercovers is a thrilling espionage drama series created by J.J. Abrams and airing on NBC in 2010. The show follows the story of Steven Bloom and his wife Samantha, both former CIA agents who retired from the agency to run a catering business in Los Angeles. However, their seemingly mundane life takes a sudden turn when they are recruited by the CIA to embark on a global mission.

The show features Gugu Mbatha-Raw in the lead role of Samantha Bloom, a smart, confident, and athletic former spy who is not afraid to get her hands dirty. She is paired up with her husband Steven, played by Boris Kodjoe, who is equally skilled and suave. The couple's chemistry is one of the highlights of the series, as they work together to solve complex missions while navigating the twists and turns of their personal life.

The premise of the show is intriguing, as each mission takes the couple to different locations around the world, ranging from exotic beaches to dangerous war zones. In each episode, the couple faces a new challenge, which tests their skills and teamwork. The show distinguishes itself from other spy dramas by putting a unique spin on the genre. For instance, the characters' personal stories and relationships are given more prominence than the typical espionage tropes of gadgets and gunfire.

As the couple embarks on their missions, they are supported by a cast of recurring characters, including Carlton Shaw, played by Gerald McRaney, who serves as their handler. Shaw is a seasoned CIA veteran, who provides guidance and direction to the duo as they navigate through the murky world of espionage. Another notable character is Leo Nash, played by Carter MacIntyre, who is a former thief turned informant. Nash provides comic relief and serves as an essential asset to the duo during their covert operations.

The show also explores the theme of love and trust in a unique way. In each episode, the couple delves into their past, revealing secrets that test their relationship. The stakes are always high, both in their professional and personal lives, and the show keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. The action scenes are well choreographed, the dialogue is snappy, and the chemistry between the characters is palpable.

Overall, Undercovers is an entertaining spy drama that is sure to captivate viewers with its action-packed episodes, charismatic performances, and unique spin on the genre. Though the show only lasted for one season, it made a lasting impact on viewers and critics alike for its fresh take on the age-old premise of espionage.
