Tradecraft: ABC Orders Spy Dramady Starring Toni Collette
Deadline reports that ABC has ordered the spy dramady Unit Zero to pilot. Unit Zero was created by Black-ish creator Kenya Barris and producer Lindsey Shockley. Shockley wrote the hour-long pilot. Toni Collette (Velvet Goldmine), who's been on a spy kick lately with roles in XXX: Return of Xander Cage (currently in theaters) and the upcoming Michael Apted thriller Unlocked, will star. According to the trade, "Unit Zero follows Jackie Fink (Collette), a brilliant but unassuming CIA engineer and single mom, as she leads a team of desk jockeys into the field as secret agents. Overlooked in the workplace, their invisibility makes them perfect for the CIA’s most covert missions." So it sounds kind of like Spy for television... which is certainly not a bad thing.
