J.J. Abrams expands 'Undercovers' cast

Carter MacIntyre joins NBC drama pilot about CIA agents

Carter MacIntyre has joined the cast of J.J. Abrams' NBC drama pilot "Undercovers."

"Undercovers," from Warner Bros. TV, revolves around Steven (Boris Kodjoe) and Samantha (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), a husband and wife who are re-activated as CIA agents after years of retirement.

MacIntyre, repped by Henderson Hogan and Magnolia, will play a CIA agent with a drinking problem who goes "missing" while trailing a Russian arms dealer.

In addition to Kodjoe and Mbatha-Raw, MacIntyle joins previously cast Gerald McRaney, Jessica Parker Kennedy and Ben Schwartz.

Abrams co-wrote "Undercovers" with Josh Reims. Abrams also is on board to direct, marking the first pilot he has helmed since "Lost" in 2004.
