‘The Company You Keep’: Milo Ventimiglia Plays Con Artist in Trailer for ABC Drama (VIDEO)
In the newly released video, above, viewers get their first glimpse of Ventimiglia’s con man Charlie and Catherine Haena Kim‘s (Boyfriends of Christmas Past) undercover CIA agent Emma as they meet at a bar. “I’m a yoga instructor,” says Charlie, “I’m a pageant queen turned rocket scientist,” replies Emma. It’s clear that both of them are hiding the truth.
According to the show’s official synopsis, a night of passion leads to love between Charlie and Emma, who are unknowingly on a collision course professionally. Charlie ramps up operations in hopes of getting out of the “family business” for good, while Emma closes in on a vengeful criminal who holds Charlie’s family debuts in hand.
As Charlie and Emma’s worlds begin to collide, it forces the both of them to reckon with the lies they’ve told so they can save themselves and their families from disastrous consequences.
