Charlie flashes back to her first interactions with Fatah (guest star Farshad Farahat) on Midnight City. Meanwhile, President Payton’s (Alfre Woodard) rival Senator Green (guest star Melinda McGraw) reveals just enough about the upcoming senatorial convoy attack report to cause her to question Charlie’s faithfulness. Charlie and team have to employ Jack Dawkins (guest star Derek Ray) to contain a smallpox contamination in Panama while avoiding detection in the country. Kurt (Cliff Chamberlain) continues to pine for Maureen (Sheila Vand) but an unexpected kindness distracts her from his attentions. Adam Kaufman, Tommy Savas and David Harbour also star. Guest starring Nestor Carbonell, Courtney B. Vance and James Remar

Each day the President is faced with dozens of life and death decisions, and to prioritize the biggest international crises facing the country, one top CIA analyst — Charleston Tucker (Katherine Heigl, “Grey’s Anatomy”) — assembles the President’s Daily Briefing (PDB). This list of the most vital security issues facing the nation brings with it moral and political judgment calls for Charleston and her trusted group of brilliant analysts at the agency. Aside from the political minefields she has to walk, Charlie has a close personal relationship with the President (Alfre Woodard, “Desperate Housewives”) because she was once engaged to her son before a tragic terrorist attack took his life. Charlie survived that attack and is now determined to bring the perpetrators to justice. Navigating a complex personal life and a pressure-cooker profession is, of course, a challenge, and Charlie sometimes engages in boundary-pushing behavior to avoid facing her grief. But when the clock strikes 2 a.m., she is all about her job — protecting her nation, serving her President and still trying to get to the bottom of her fiancé’s murder that will reveal itself as a shocking mystery.

The cast also includes Adam Kaufman, Sheila Vand, Cliff Chamberlain, Tommy Savas and Leslie Odom, Jr.

Writer-director Joe Carnahan (“The Blacklist”) serves as executive producer with Katherine Heigl, Nancy Heigl, Robert Simonds, Sophie Watts, Henry Crumpton, Rodney Faraon and Julia Franz. “State of Affairs” is a production of Universal Television, Bob Simonds Company and Abishag Productions.
