The details for ‘Undercovers’, the new TV show from JJ Abrams which will debut on NBC this fall, were leaked on the internet recently. Warner Bros quickly shut down the leak by having it pulled from everywhere they could find it. The internet being what it is, here’s the note that preceded the script:
“The pace of this series is intended to be unusually, almost unspeakably, fast. Sure we won’t deny the script is long. But that’s only if you judge by something as arbitrary as page numbers. So when reading the script, assuming you get past this page, whether it’s an action sequence or just two people speaking, imagine scenes moving lighting fast. Then imagine them just the slightest bit faster. This will hopefully give you a sense of what we’re going for.”
The show revolves around Steven and Samantha, a married couple who are also retired secret service agents. Carlton Shaw, a colleague, recruits the pair to help rescue old friend Leo Nash from an arms and drug dealer. Sound good to you?
