UnderCovers was recently cancelled–well not so recently. Apparently JJ Abrams felt it was his fault by giving the series a light edge instead of the serious stuff he’s done like Alias.
I thought Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Boris Kodjoe had great chemistry and worked well, but perhaps it’s reality that a show like that doesn’t make it to another year.
Talking with a screenwriter, the complex shows need to do more early on to build their following and that needs time. A show like theirs is what’s working on cable these days thinking about Monk, Psych or White Collar.
