Press/Gallery: Lauren Cohan, Scott Foley lock horns in ‘Whiskey Cavalier’ trailer

UPI – ABC released the first trailer for Whiskey Cavalier, its new action drama starring The Walking Dead actress Lauren Cohan and Scandal alum Scott Foley.

 

The title refers to the code name of Foley’s FBI agent Will Chase.

 

“Following an emotional break-up, Chase is assigned to work with badass CIA operative Francesca ‘Frankie’ Trowbridge (codename: ‘Fiery Tribune,’) played by Lauren Cohan,” a message accompanying the clip on YouTube said. “Together, they lead an inter-agency team of flawed, funny and heroic spies who periodically save the world (and each other) while navigating the rocky roads of friendship, romance and office politics.”

 

Tuesday’s 3-minute preview shows Chase and Trowbridge meeting for the first time in a bar and immediately becoming rivals as they work the same case. Ana Ortiz, Tyler James Williams and Vir Das co-star.

Press: The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan signs on for ABC pilot

EW – With contract uncertainty surrounding an unsigned Lauren Cohan for the already renewed season 9 of The Walking Dead, the actress best known for playing Maggie Greene on the AMC zombie drama has signed on for a lead role in an ABC drama pilot titled Whiskey Cavalier, EW has confirmed.

 

Cohan will play Frankie Trowbridge (whose codename is Fiery Tribune), a CIA operative who must work with FBI agent Will Chase (whose codename is Whiskey Cavalier and is played by Scott Foley) in the inter-agency drama.

 

What this means for Cohan’s Walking Dead future remains unclear. Season 8 could mark the end for both Cohan and Maggie, or the actress could return in a limited capacity for season 9, or even as a series regular should Whiskey Cavalier become a midseason entry for 2019. Or, if the new ABC show does not get picked up to series, Cohan could remain on The Walking Dead with a new contract even beyond season 9. But this certainly puts the pressure on AMC to get some sort of deal with Cohan done to make sure an endgame for the character of Maggie is firmly in place.

 

The Walking Dead returns on Feb. 25 on AMC.
