The soon-to-be primetime series chronicles the life of a former CIA agent named Erica (Jennifer Carpenter) who is known as “the most notorious traitor in American history” and “is serving life in a Supermax prison,” reports Deadline. But fellow FBI agent, Will Keaton (Morris Chesnut) begrudgingly taps Agent Carpenter “to help track down a fiercely dangerous and elusive criminal she knows all too well.”
The show’s motto: “To catch a spy, they must think like one.”
The Enemy Within is one of NBC’s new series to be announced on its fall schedule, which will be released next Monday (May 14).
