Alias - US TV Series

Alias

2001 - United States

Relatively unknown until 2001, Jennifer Garner arrived on the TV scene with all the speed of a high velocity bullet in the explosive series Alias as a beautiful woman who finds herself drawn deeper and deeper into the world of deceit, international espionage, spies and counter spies. 

Seven years ago Sydney Bristow (Garner) was in her freshman year at college when she was approached by SD-6, a top secret division of the CIA. Accepting the offer, she quickly became a field agent and her hair-raising assignments took her all over the world. As the series opens Sydney discovers that SD-6 is not a branch of the CIA at all and she has been inadvertently working for "the other side", on behalf of an organisation involved in extortion and weapons sales and an enemy of the United States. When she tells her fiance that she is a spy he is murdered by SD-6. 

Her life now in mortal danger, Sydney turns to the real CIA for help. She becomes a double agent working for the CIA against the rogue organisation (The Alliance of Twelve) and learns that her father is also a double agent for the CIA. As if her life wasn't complicated enough she has to hide her triple identity from her friends and family, as she assumes multiple aliases to carry out her missions. 

The series was created by J. J. Abrams who later created Lost and directed the feature movies Mission: Impossible lll (2006) and Star Trek (2009) and produced the movie Cloverfield
