Frank Spotnitz ("The X-Files," "Strike Back") created this spy thriller focusing on Sam Hunter (Melissa George), the best agent at private espionage firm Byzantium who returns to work after surviving an attempt on her life, possibly by one of her co-workers. It's about time a kick-ass lady agent joins the likes of "Nikita" on TV. George, a veteran of the spy-gal thriller "Alias," knows exactly how high to kick.
