J.J. Abrams co-created the series with Josh Reims, which starred Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as a married couple, who are also former spies, who get called back into action. The series aired in the Wednesday night 8 PM timeslot and never found a solid footing. Undercovers dropped to a series-low 1.3 rating in the all-important 18-49 demographic during last night's episode.
The series is currently in production of Episode 12 in its original 13-episode order. The series will remain on the air in its original timeslot for the next two weeks and it will be pre-empted on November 24 for an NBC holiday special with the last airing set for December 1. It wasn't clear when the rest of the produced episodes of Undercovers will air, if they will air at all.
