Re: the spy/assassin genre resurgence

And now Frank Spotnitz, a writer and executive producer for "The X-Files" is in development for an original prime-time show for Cinemax, a yet-titled show about
a female security operative who goes undercover with a private military contractor.
will also feature a strong, sometimes butt-kicking female character.
Its protagonist will merge elements of strong-willed hacker Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" and resourceful government agent Evelyn Salt in the Angelina Jolie action film "Salt," according to a person who was briefed on the project but not authorized to talk about it publicly

To me a show about a protagonist going undercover falls under the spy genre. This should be a good 13 episode series with lots of action. Better than Covert Affairs and Alias?
