ABC Greenlights ‘The Assets’ Limited Series

ABC Logo

The Cold War is proving to be very in vogue at the moment (almost as in vogue as miniseries): first FX gave us The Americans and now ABC has greenlit the Cold War set limited series The Assets for 2014.

According to Deadline, The Assets is based on former CIA officers Sandra Grimes and Jeanne Vertefeuille’s book Circle of Treason: A CIA Account of Traitor Aldrich Ames and the Men He Betrayed. Grimes and Vertefeuille are famous for weeding out a mole within the CIA who was feeding information to the Soviets that led to the deaths of ten Soviet agents who spied for the United States. The series will take viewers inside the complex world of the CIA at the end of the Cold War.

Are you up for another Cold War drama?

The Assets is set to air on ABC in 2014.
