NBC Picks Up Dramas 'The Enemy Within' and 'The Village' to Series

After being the first broadcast network to pick up a pilot to series last Friday, NBC has handed out two more orders for new dramas - The Enemy Within and The Village.

The Enemy Within - Brilliant former CIA operative Erica Shepherd is now known as the most notorious traitor in American history and serving life in a Supermax prison. Against every fiber of his being but with nowhere else to turn, FBI Agent Will Keaton enlists Shepherd to help track down a fiercely dangerous and elusive criminal she knows all too well. For Keaton, it's not easy to trust the woman who cost him so much. While Shepherd and Keaton have different motivations for bringing the enemy to justice, they both know that to catch a spy: They must think like one.

The drama stars Jennifer Carpenter, Morris Chestnut, Raza Jaffrey, Cassandra Freeman and Kelli Garner.

Ken Woodruff wrote the pilot, which was directed by Mark Pellington. They executive produce with Vernon Sanders. Universal Television produces.

The Village - The people who reside in a Brooklyn apartment building have built a bonded family of friends and neighbors. Sarah's a nurse and single mom raising a creative teen; Gabe's a young law student with a much older and unexpected roommate; Ava must secure the future of her young, U.S.-born son when ICE comes knocking; Nick's a veteran who's returned from war; and the heart and soul of the building, Ron and Patricia, have captivating tales all their own. These are the hopeful, heartwarming and challenging stories of life that prove family is everything - even if it's the one you make with the people around you.

The drama stars Lorraine Toussaint, Moran Atias, Michael McManus, Jerod Haynes, Frankie Faison, Grace Van Dien, Warren Christie, Daren Kagasoff and Dominic Chianese.
