TCA Press Tour: Going 'Undercovers' with Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw [Video]

August 1, 2010 |  1:15 pm

Boris Kodjoe hopes “Undercovers” will lay the foundation for other networks to take more risks and diversify their lead stars.

When J.J. Abrams’ new spy thriller premieres this fall on NBC, viewers will see a TV rarity: an action-packed show led by two black actors.

Kodjoe (Showtime’s “Soul Food”) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“Doctor Who”) star as a married couple who, after having retreated to a regular life, return to their espionage ways, fronted by a booming catering company.

Both stars took the time to chat with us at a TCA after-party this weekend about the show’s buzz and whether they felt like the show was revolutionizing television.
