The new project follows an ex-CIA black ops officer and private contractor (Welling), who, after a personal tragedy strikes, joins a secret organization that carries out the most difficult high-stakes assignments.
Welling will executive-produce the show along with writer Carla Kettner, of Bones. Welling previously co-executive-produced the final two seasons of Smallville and has also executive-produced CW's cheerleading drama Hellcats.
