Nikita, a sexy and suspenseful new action series, makes its Australian television premiere on Thursday, October 28, at 9.30pm on GO!.
As a deeply troubled teenager, Nikita (Maggie Q – Live Free or Die Hard, Mission: Impossible III) was rescued from death row by a secret US agency known only as Division. They faked her execution and gave her a second chance – the chance to begin a new life while serving her country.
She was taken to their hidden headquarters and trained to be a spy and assassin. Despite her gruelling training at Division she never lost her humanity, and even fell in love with a civilian … who was promptly killed by the very agency that claimed to give people a new life.
After realising she had been betrayed by the only people she thought she could trust, Nikita did what no one else before her had ever done – she escaped from Division. Now, after three years in hiding, the rogue Nikita is seeking retribution and making it clear to her former bosses that she will stop at nothing to expose and destroy their covert operation.
Yet as determined as Nikita is to bring down the secretive agency there are those just as determined to stop her, including Division’s newest recruit Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca), a beautiful young woman who seems destined to replace Nikita as their next top operative.
Nikita also stars Shane West (ER), Aaron Stanford (X2, X-Men: The Last Stand), Ashton Holmes (Boston Legal), Tiffany Hines (Lie to Me), Melinda Clarke (The O.C., The Vampire Diaries) and Xander Berkeley (24).
Nikita comes from an exceptional team of executive producers including Craig Silverstein (Bones, K-Ville), David Levinson (21 Jump Street, The Commish), Danny Cannon (Dark Blue, CSI ), McG (Chuck, Supernatural, Human Target, The O.C., Terminator Salvation) and Peter Johnson (Supernatural, Chuck).
