UnderCovers -- Cancelled

Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw starred in the NBC spy drama UnderCovers. The story line was ok, but the dialogue was pretty bad and Hoyt the assistant tech nerd was very annoying. The show could have had a chance simply if it were better. I think the creator J.J. Abrams (of LOST, ALIAS, Cloverfield and Star Trek fame) was just banking on Black people being happy about a Black Spy show. Such was not the case. NBC isn't really the right channel for that sort of thing either so that was against them as well. If on the CW, or even FOX I think the show would have stood a better chance. The show was cancelled so they say because they weren't getting enough young viewers. I just don't think it caught peoples attention's after they saw the first two episodes. It was kinda crappy. Make a better show, get better ratings (not always true!)

I agree, the dialogue is pretty awful. I couldn't sit through a whole episode.
