State of Affairs The Faithful

State of Affairs “The Faithful” Episode 11 airs Monday Feb at 10PM ET/PT on NBC. In tonight’s episode, Charlie (Katherine Heigl) and Lucas (Adam Kaufman) join the FBI manhunt for an Ar Rissalah terrorist who escaped custody in the woods of West Virginia. Meanwhile, President Payton (Alfre Woodard) makes a deal with the news media that protects CIA’s top secret Operation Bellerophon–at the cost of exposing her own secrets on national television. On the other side of the world, Nick (guest star Chris L. McKenna) and Fatah (guest star Farshad Farahat) wait in a terrorist stronghold as they anticipate the arrival of the most dangerous man on the planet, Sheikh Hakam (guest star Yousuf Azami). Also starring Sheila Vand, Cliff Chamberlain, Tommy Savas and David Harbour. Adam Arkin and Matthew Lillard guest star.

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.
