As pointed out earlier, here's a three minute peek into this new spy show on The CW called Nikita. The new series has Maggie Q in the lead.
Nikita is a rouge agent who is rescued from death row by the government. They faked her death and kept her away from the outside world, promising a new life for her. But the government actually trained her to become an assassin against her will. Finding a way out of the system, she vows vengeance and is running after the people who have done this to her.
Nikita's storyline has been played out so many times in TVs and movies. My favorite is actually that of Bridget Fonda in Point of No Return.
There was also a TV series called La Femme Nikita from 1997.
I can't tell how Nikita 2010 is going to do... but this, I think, is the first time The CW's picking a story that has nothing to do with affluent teens flaunting their designer items and talking like 28 year old sex starved ladies (yes, I'm pointing out Gossip Girl and 90210, in case you can't tell. :P ).
Anyway, here's Nikita's teaser:
Like what you've seen so far?
Maybe I found my new Sydney Bristow right there.
