NBC has released the Official Synopsis of The Enemy Within episode “The Embassy” (1.11) that will be aired on Monday, May 6 at 10:00-11:00 PM.
When a highly sophisticated Tal operative (guest star Michael James Shaw) evades FBI custody and flees to the Swiss embassy, Keaton and the Cointel team must go undercover. What begins as a smooth counterintelligence operation quickly devolves into a tense hostage situation.
‘The Enemy Within’ stars Jennifer Carpenter, Morris Chestnut, Kelli Garner and Raza Jaffrey.
In The Enemy Within, Erica Shepherd, 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 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.
