A short-lived series about inner workings of the {{CIA}} -- a mix of SpyDrama, GovernmentProcedural and office drama. The show lasted from [[ShortRunner September, 2001 to May, 2003]].

9/11 had a huge impact on the show. It was nine days before the intended start of the series, an episode which involved stopping a terrorist strike masterminded by one UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden. That episode was shuffled to later in the season, along with one involving an anthrax scare after several real-world anthrax attacks. The show was {{retool}}ed, involving a major shakeup at the top of the Agency, to focus more heavily on the CIA's role in the TheWarOnTerror.

Lots of EspionageTropes, naturally.
