In the next episode of “Undercovers,” Steven (played by Boris Kodjoe) and Samantha (Gugu Mbathe-Raw) are tasked with tracking down a code-breaking device that could expose the identities of every CIA agent.
“It’s in Germany, which is fantastic, because Boris gets to speak his native language,” co-creator and executive producer Josh Reims tells Zap2it. “It’s kind of an exciting episode, it has a little twist as far as the spy story goes that you won’t be expecting.”
Reims tells us that Kodjoe, a German citizen, was especially helpful on this one. “He corrects everybody else who is speaking German and tells them how to say it right,” jokes Reims.
One of the running storylines in the series is how Steven and Samantha, who have been out of the spy game for five years, try to get their skills up to snuff. “They are not perfect spies yet,” Reims says. “And I like that we show the human side of them.”
Plus, the executive producer tells us that things get nuts when Steven and Leo (Carter MacIntyre) happen upon an interesting Berlin hot spot.
“Leo and Steven go to some crazy club where there’s half naked women hanging on ropes and dancing,” he says. “I don’t know what’s going on there. I wanted to go to the set that day, but I couldn’t.”
