But this time, the staff of the Townsend Agency — disgraced cop Kate (General Hospital alum Annie Ilonzeh), ex-con Eve (Friday Night Lights' Minka Kelly), reformed thief Abby (Rachael Taylor of Grey's Anatomy) and former hacker Bosley (The Wire's Ramón Rodriguez) — aren't just a sinfully sexy quartet out to save the day.
