CW Developing Its Own Terrorism Show

The CW is developing a drama about a young female FBI agent who goes undercover to infiltrate a terrorist sleeper cell operating out of a prestigious New York university. The Comic-Con panel practically produces itself! According to Deadline, the still-untitled show is "described as Alias meets Homeland," though we prefer to think of it as "21 Jump Street meets Felicity meets Sleeper Cell." No word yet on if the cell comprises undergraduates or grad students, what hunky professor our heroine will of course fall in love with, or which higher-up at the FBI will eventually shout into a walkie-talkie, "Get her out of there!"
