NBC's Latest Cooking Show: Caterers Who Are Spies!

Catering usually means insanely long hours, mediocre pay, a big pile of worn-out cooking clogs, and -- unless you work for Wolfgang Puck Catering -- very little glamour. But who needs real life when you've got NBC. Jay Leno's home network has just picked up a new series from J.J. Abrams called Undercovers, which is about two married caterers who are secretly spies.

The plot of the show involves "a typical married couple who own a small catering company in Los Angeles," and stars Boris Kodjoe (Soul Food) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Doctor Who) as the caterers who are -- lest we forget any relevant details -- also ex-CIA. That would be the Central Intelligence Agency, not the Culinary Institute of America. A note to any current culinary school students who may still think that $50K in student loans is practical mathematics for an eventual job peeling vegetables for $10/hour: the career path from spy (maybe) to celebrity chef only worked for Julia Child.
