Usa Network Renews ‘covert Affairs’ For Season 5

Covert Affairs Chris Gorham Piper Perabo - H 2013

With its intricate storytelling, diverse characters and authentic locations, the series continues to be a cornerstone in our lineup of USAs original signature dramas. The renewal comes mere weeks before Covert Affairs returns for the second half of its fourth season, which wrapped its summer run in mid-September. It was one of summers top 10 cable scripted shows, with nearly 4 million viewers. When Covert Affairs returns for the remaining six episodes, co-creatorsMatt Corman and Chris Ordpromise a “totally different show” following CIA agent Annie Walker’s (Piper Perabo) decision to fake her own death and go deep undercover in her continued mission to topple Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin). “This change that we see in Annie at the end [of the finale] is a seismic one and a major one,”Corman told THR in September . “It’s going to launch us into a back six where we see a totally different Annie and a totally different show, and we hope people enjoy it.” “Every episode and every script we’ve been doing is exciting because we get to see a whole new side to Annie and how she operates, and the choices she’s forced to make are a whole new chapter. She’s never been faced with many of these challenges and she doesn’t have the support system to help her. It’s very interesting how she copes with this new paradigm,” Ord told THR. Christopher Gorham, Peter Gallagher, Kari Matchett and Hill Harper also star in the Universal Cable Productions series fromCormanandOrd, who are executive producers along withDoug Liman, David Bartis, Gene KleinandStephen Kay. Gorham will direct the fourth episode of the remaining half of the season. International locations featured this season include Medellin, Rome, Vienna, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Grand Bahama Island and Geneva. Covert Affairs’ renewal comes as USA preps its big original comedy push following the syndication debut of Modern Family, and the return of veteran drama White Collar later this month.

Miss USA Erin Brady’s stalker found unfit for trial by court doctors

In 2011, Causey and the rest of the 130 members of Oracle Team USA began preparing for the 2013 regatta. At the end of 2010 Causey was working on the Luis Vuitton Series, participating in a number of events that took him from Sardinia, to England and to Dubai, among other locations. Once Oracle Team USA announced the team members and the location of the Americas Cup, Causey hit the ground running. He helped test products and build systems for the AC72 boat that would be used in 2013. Halfway through 2011, Oracle Team USA saw the workload increase, which is what Causey had expected prior to getting involved. It was six-to-seven days a week, not many breaks, said Causey, who was on the boat for every America Cup race as a reserve sailor. It was a grueling process, but thats what I expected. The first AC72 was launched in September 2012. Prior to the launch, Causey focused on the rigging systems that would be used on the boat. Eighteen months ago, Causey began his work with the wing program of the AC72, which included checking and maintain the working parts of the wing and building all of the rigging that went into the parts control system. Success came to the Oracle Team USA after overcoming a significant deficit in the Americas Cup. Eight days after the launch of the AC-72 last September, the Oracle Team USA boat capsized in the waters around San Francisco and for the next three and half months, the team rebuilt the boat while their opposition from New Zealand was logging sailing hours. We had done about half as much as sailing as Emirates Team New Zealand going into the regatta, said Causey. I think going into the event, we felt that disadvantage. It took us a week to close the learning gap they had on us. After falling behind significantly in the Cup standings, Causey said the team came to terms with the do-or-die situation they had put themselves in, and developed the appropriate attitude. Mentally, for a while, I was, and others were too, resigned to the fact that we were going to lose, said Causey. In a funny way, it took the pressure off. It didnt slow us down, we were still working just as hard, but we developed that nothing to lose mentality. Realizing the comeback was complete was a special moment for Causey. It was so frustrating at times for a number of reasons, and we had some rough moments, Causey noted. But coming back, seeing everybody work towards succeeding, it was a great moment. There are so many emotions because you have had so many experiences with the team and the boat. Causeys love and passion for sailing was harnessed as a youngster, sailing on traditional wooden boats in the waters surrounding Olympia. That interest in sailing kept evolving, and Causey began participating in more competitive youth racing in the region. Its something Ive always been interested in, said Causey of his passion for racing sailboats. It definitely started when I was growing up in Olympia. Now an Americas Cup champion and part of a team on the forefront of the sports newest innovations and technologies, Causey has his eyes set on future events, including the Sydney to Hobart and San Francisco to Hawaii yacht races. However, with only a week having passed by since the big victory, Causey is focusing on spending some much needed time with his family. Honestly, Im still decompressing.
