Popular USA Network Series Covert Affairs Films in the District
“Covert Affairs,” a one hour spy series on the USA Network, will be filming in the District today. The series stars Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly and Cheaper by the Dozen) as a young CIA trainee, Annie Walker, who is unexpectedly promoted to work as a field operative at the Domestic Protection Division (DPD). Her cover story is that she works in Acquisitions at the Smithsonian Museum.
The filming in the District will take place around the monuments and downtown DC. Lead actors Piper Perabo and Christopher Gorham (Ugly Betty), who plays a blind special ops agent who guides Annie in her new job, will travel to the District for the shoot.
If his schedule permits, Mayor Vincent C. Gray will visit the set today and speak to “Covert Affairs” producers about filming more of the series in Washington, DC, where the show is based. The series is currently filming its second season.
