Following an emotional breakup, tough but tender FBI super-agent Will Chase (codename: Whiskey Cavalier) is assigned to work with CIA operative Francesca “Frankie” Trowbridge (codename: Fiery Tribune). Together, they lead an interagency team of flawed, funny and heroic spies — including Will’s best friend, behavioral scientist Susan Sampson and jittery genius Edgar Standish — who periodically save the world — and each other — while navigating the rocky roads of friendship, romance and office politics.
Frankie is very much queer coded, and the cast believe she doesn’t care about gender, but that did not materialized on screen. The show was canceled before it got anywhere with that.
