Howey will star as Harry in the drama pilot based on James Cameron's 1994 action-comedy film. "The character is described as a benign, play-it-safe, seemingly risk-averse computer salesman and devoted family man, married with two kids," according to Variety. "But in reality, Harry is an undercover operative, a first-class spy working for a covert U.S. Intelligence organization. Like the film, Harry’s unfulfilled suburban wife is propelled into a life of danger and adventure when she’s recruited to work alongside him to save the world as they try to revitalize their passionless marriage. The wife role, which was played by Jamie Lee Curtis in the film, has yet to be cast."
