UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., March. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- OVERVIEW: The sexy, action-packed first season of the smash-hit espionage series, "Covert Affairs" starring Piper Perabo (The Prestige, Coyote Ugly) debuts on DVD May 17, 2011 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Annie Walker (Perabo) is the CIA's newest field operative in one of their most secretive branches. Suddenly summoned by headquarters for active duty one month before training is over, she's quickly thrown into a shadowy world full of cons, killers and international crime rings. What she doesn't know is that there is something – or someone – from her past that her bosses want badly enough to put her in harm's way. Her mission now is to survive long enough to find out why.
Hailed as "fast-paced, fun and every bit as charming" (Mary McNamara, Los Angeles Times), "Covert Affairs" Season One also stars Christopher Gorham ("Ugly Betty," "Harper's Island"), Sendhil Ramamurthy ("Heroes," "Psych"), Kari Matchett ("24," "Invasion"), Anne Dudek ("Mad Men," "House M.D.") and Peter Gallagher (Burlesque, "The O.C.") with guest appearances by Eriq La Salle ("ER"), Lauren Holly ("NCIS"), Liane Balaban (Last Chance Harvey) and Anna Chlumsky (My Girl).
