Clarkson will play Cornelia Gray, a CIA spy coming in from the cold after 20 years in hiding, dodging the government agents who suspected her of being a traitor. But when she returns to her old life, it is discovered there is a new mole within her old spy network putting both Gray and her contacts in jeopardy.
Writer John McLaughlin (Black Swan) and director Ruba Nadda (Magnum P.I., Roswell) will adapt the series, which is based on an original concept by best-selling novelist David Baldacci (Absolute Power).
