The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz, and director McG, bring us Chuck, a new drama pilot at NBC, laced with humor about young twenty-something spies.
Chuck: From executive producer Josh Schwartz (The O.C.) and executive producer-director McG (Charlie’s Angels) comes a one-hour, comedic spy thriller about Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi, Less Than Perfect) — a computer geek who is catapulted into a new career as the government’s most vital secret agent. When Chuck opens an e-mail subliminally encoded with government secrets, he unwittingly downloads an entire server of sensitive data into his brain. Now, the fate of the world lies in the unlikely hands of a guy who works at Buy More. Instead of fighting computer viruses, he must fight assassins and international terrorists. With the government’s most precious secrets in Chuck’s head, Maj. John Casey (Adam Baldwin, Firefly) of the NSA assumes the responsibility of protecting him. His partner is the CIA’s top agent (and Chuck’s first date in years) Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strzechowski). They’ll keep him safe by trading in his pocket protector for a bulletproof vest. Also starring are Joshua Gomez (Without a Trace) as Chuck’s best buddy Morgan and Sarah Lancaster (What About Brian?) as Chuck’s ever-supportive sister Ellie.
On May 10, 2007, Chuck was officially given a series order by NBC.
