Nic Bishop ("Body of Proof") has been tapped to join USA Network's globe-trotting hit espionage series, COVERT AFFAIRS, opposite Golden Globe®-nominated Piper Perabo ("Looper"), Christopher Gorham ("Ugly Betty"), Hill Harper ("CSI: NY"), Kari Matchett ("Invasion") and Peter Gallagher ("The O.C."). The series, produced by Universal Cable Productions, films in Toronto and will span 16 episodes when it returns this summer for its fifth season.
Bishop joins as a series regular and will play Ryan McQuaid. Handsome, magnetic and charming, this former Navy SEAL turned private contractor billionaire is a man of action. McQuaid and Annie (Perabo) first meet in the field as uneasy allies, but as their relationship intensifies so will Annie's fears that McQuaid may have a secret agenda.
Season five of the series picks up after CIA operative Annie fakes her death, alters her identity and goes deep undercover in the streets of Hong Kong to defeat her most cunning opponent, Henry Wilcox (guest star Gregory Itzin). The new season will examine the price Annie will have to pay for this risky maneuver and the implications it will have on her relationships - both personally and professionally - as she attempts to re-emerge into the world she once knew.
