  • Trivia

    • There is said to be one Buffy/Angel reference in every episode of this show. The reference in this episode was the "Wolfram Security" shirt Simon wore, which refers to the law firm of Wolfram and Hart from Angel.

    • Trivia: This was the show's original premise before being revamped. This premise has been dropped and Peter Facinelli is no longer part of the show.

      At first glance, Danny Roberts (Rachel Nichols, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd) seems to be the quintessential American teenager, dating the quarterback at a suburban high school. Only a few know her secret: Danny is not really a high school student, but a 22-year-old federal agent working undercover. Helping Danny – who is actually Agent ELIZABETH WORTH – maintain her cover is Agent Sean Eckhardt (Peter Facinelli, Fastlane).
      In the pilot episode, Danny / Elizabeth's drug investigation is sidetracked when her high school "boyfriend" is murdered. She must confront the pressures of getting personally involved in the lives of her classmates, while working to solve the murder and put the drug investigation back on track – all without blowing her cover. Over the course of the series, Danny's assignments will vary, but she always faces the unique challenges of going undercover to solve crimes.
