Saturdays on NBC (10-11 p.m. ET)

Take three gorgeous ex-cons, one clandestine government organization, and more low-lifes than you can shake a stick at, and you have entered the world of “She Spies”, the brand-new one-hour weekly action/adventure series premiering on NBC from 10:00 – 11:00 p.m. Saturday, July 20. Following its four-episode sneak preview on NBC, the show moves to first-run syndication, where it will air throughout the 2002-03 television season.

Throw everything you thought you knew about spies and espionage out the window – Cassie, Shane and D.D. are a trio of ex-cons who are enlisted by the very government that put them behind bars in the first place. They bring the bad guys down with sleek moves and street smarts.

The series stars Natasha Henstridge (“Species”) as Cassie – elegant, intelligent, charming – a fierce con-woman, with the looks to match. She’s a career con artist who was destined for greatness before one of her schemes backfired. Now it’s either lead this trio of bad girls-turned-undercover agents, or spend the best years of her life in women’s correctional prison.

Cassie is joined by D.D. (Kristen Miller, “That’s My Bush”); childlike and naïve, yet brilliant when sitting in front of a computer. She cracks computer codes like squirrels crack nuts.

And then there’s Shane (Natashia Williams, “So Little Time”) – tough, sexy and fearless and happy to put the bad guy on the receiving end of a flying scissor-kick or a full-force head butt.

The girls officially report to Jack Wilde (Carlos Jacott, “Being John Malkovich”), but they really have the guy eating out of their hands – he just doesn’t know it yet. Jack tries to keep them in line with his rules and curfews.

The new series is executive-produced by Craig Van Sickle and Steven Long Mitchell, whose credits include the critically acclaimed NBC series “The Pretender.” They are joined at the “She Spies” helm by Vince Manze and Joe Livecchi, the NBC executives behind the network’s now-legendary “Must See TV” campaign. The show comes to television via a unique agreement between MGM Television and NBC Enterprises, which will preview the show on the NBC network prior to its run in syndication.

The show is filmed on location, in and around Los Angeles.
