I looks like Forever Knight
co-creator and executive producer James D. Parriott is headed back to Toronto (sort of). According to the Hollywood Reporter
, he's joined USA Network's Covert Affairs
as an Executive Producer and co-showrunner. The series stars Piper Perabo as a multilingual CIA trainee unexpectedly promoted to field operative while reeling over a mysterious ex-boyfriend who appears to be of particular interest to her agency bosses.
The series will shoot their 11 episode order in Toronto.
The series also stars Christopher Gorham, Peter Gallagher, and Kari Matchett who played Nick's wife Alyssa in season 3's "Dead of Night". (Yay for another FK connection)
Okay, so The Border
has apparently not heard my requests to cast Geraint Wyn Davies alongside Catherine Disher AND Nigel Bennett in a single episode (Was I not a good girl this year?), so I will now turn some of my attention to Covert Affairs
. Now I know the producers are usually L.A. based, but hopefully Jim Parriott's previous experiences with Toronto will lead him to take an active role in casting. Then, he can bring all of the FK players in for guest appearances. So far the show only has an 11 episode order so he better get cracking.
And if The Border
gets a 4th season pick up, I will continue to send positive vibes for Ger to make an appearance. It's only fair. ;-)
