NBC has released a first look for new midseason drama, “The Enemy Within,” premiering February 25th at 10pm and airing Mondays after “The Voice.” The series stars Morris Chestnut (“Rosewood,” “Goliath.”) and Jennifer Carpenter (“Dexter”).
In this character-based psychological thriller, Erica Shepherd (Jennifer Carpenter), a brilliant former CIA operative now known as one of the most notorious traitors in recent American history, is serving life in a Supermax prison. Against every fiber of his being, but with nowhere else to turn, FBI agent Will Keaton (Morris Chestnut) enlists Shepherd to help track down a fiercely dangerous and elusive criminal she knows all too well. While Shepherd and Keaton have different motivations for bringing the enemy to justice, they both know that to catch a spy… they must think like one.
The cast includes Jennifer Carpenter, Morris Chestnut, Raza Jaffrey, Kelli Garner, Cassandra Freeman and Noah Mills.
Freeman will play Jaqueline Pettigrew. From a police family in Baltimore, Pettigrew is the newest member of Keaton’s FBI team and is very good at her job.
“The Enemy Within” was created by Ken Woodruff, who executive produces alongside Matt Corman, Chris Ord and Charles Beeson. Mark Pellington directs and executive produces the pilot. Vernon Sanders also executive produces the pilot. “The Enemy Within” is produced by Universal Television.
