The This Is Us favorite executive produces and stars in The Company You Keep, which is based on a Korean series called My Fellow Citizens. The upcoming series from writer and co-showrunner Julia Cohen (A Million Little Things, Riverdale) is set to premiere at the 10 PM slot on Sundays, following the return of America’s Funniest Home Videos and American Idol. The Emmy-nominated actor – recognized for his early roles in Gilmore Girls and Heroes – plays Charlie, a con man who shares a night of passion with CIA agent Emma (Catherine Haena Kim, Good Trouble). The pair fall in love as their respective lines of work lead the two on a collision course. The series synopsis reads, “Charlie ramps up the ‘family business’ so he can get out for good, while Emma’s closing in on the vengeful criminal who holds Charlie’s family debts in-hand — forcing them to reckon with the lies they’ve told, so they can save themselves and their families from disastrous consequences.”
