New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy Visits the Set of THE ENEMY WITHIN
Governor Phil Murphy highlighted the economic benefits of the Garden State Film and Digital Media Jobs Act on Friday, Oct. 5 as he visited the set of NBC and Universal Television's "The Enemy Within," the first production to begin filming in New Jersey since the act became law in July. Matt Corman, an executive producer of "The Enemy Within," introduced the governor.
In "The Enemy Within" - a fast-paced, spy-hunting thriller - Erica Shepherd (Jennifer Carpenter) is a brilliant former CIA operative, now known as the most notorious traitor in American history serving life in a Supermax prison. Against every fiber of his being but with nowhere else to turn, FBI Agent Will Keaton (Morris Chestnut) enlists Shepherd to help track down a fiercely dangerous and elusive criminal she knows all too well. For Keaton, it's not easy to TRUST the woman who cost him so much. While Shepherd and Keaton have different motivations for bringing the enemy to justice, they both know that to catch a spy... they must think like one.
The cast includes Jennifer Carpenter, Morris Chestnut, Raza Jaffrey, Kelli Garner, Cassandra Freeman and Noah Mills.
"The Enemy Within" was created by Ken Woodruff, who executive produces alongside Matt Corman, Chris Ord and Charles Beeson. Mark Pellington directs and executive produces the pilot. Vernon Sanders also executive produces the pilot. "The Enemy Within" is produced by Universal Television and will debut midseason on NBC.
