The story revolves around suburban housewife Helen (Gonzaga) who one day discovers that her seemingly boring husband Harry (Howey), who claims to be a computer specialist, is actually an international spy with numerous skills, who are not even that unsexy. Suddenly, the broken marriage turns into a single adventure with many dangers. Helen is supposed to work with Harry to save the world – and by the way, the two also save their relationship.

Super director James Cameron, who was responsible for the original strip at the time, is set to executive produce the new CBS series. Rae Sanchini also returns, as do McG, Mary Viola, Corey Marsh, Josh Levy and Anthony Hemingway. Incidentally, the new edition has nothing to do with the 2017 plan for a series adaptation at FOX by Arrow maker Matt Guggenheim…
