Look out for CIA drama State Of Affairs this Fall, as JDHF co-founder Katherine Heigl's new show debuts on NBC!
State Of Affairs centers on Charleston 'Charlie' Tucker (Katherine Heigl), a top CIA analyst whose task it is to assemble the daily briefing for the President of the United States. This list of the most vital security issues facing the nation brings with it moral and political judgment calls for Charleston and her trusted group of brilliant analysts at the agency.
Aside from the political minefields she has to walk, Charlie has a close personal relationship with President Constance Payton (Alfre Woodard) because she was once engaged to her son before a tragic terrorist attack took his life. Charlie survived that attack and is now determined to bring the perpetrators to justice.
Navigating a complex personal life and a pressure-cooker profession is, of course, a challenge, and Charlie sometimes engages in boundary-pushing behavior to avoid facing her grief. But when the clock strikes 2:00 a.m., she is all about her job - protecting her nation, serving her president and still trying to get to the bottom of her fiancé's murder, which will reveal itself as a shocking mystery.
The Foundation team is particularly excited about the show, because in addition to her starring role, Katherine will also executive produce alongside Nancy Heigl - our other co-founder! The duo pitched the show to the network under the banner of their production company Abishag.
So mark the date in your calendar (Monday, November 17 at 10/9C), check out the trailer and be sure to tune in for the first episode!
