USA Network has officially ordered a new cop drama entitled Burn Notice, which is scheduled to premiere on Thursday, June 28 at 10/9c.

Burn Notice follows a spy who gets a “burn notice,” an official statement released by an intelligence agency to other agencies that he is unreliable. Determined to find out what caused his dismissal, he returns to his hometown only to discover that he is unable to utilize his contacts and resources. Now, he must use his special training to stay under the spy network radar and must find a way to fund his ongoing personal investigation.

Read on to find out more about the cast.

Leading the series is actor Jeffery Donovan who plays Michael Westen, the spy who gets fired after 10 years of serving his country. Donovan’s acting credits include Come Early Morning, Hitch, Touching Evil, and Spin City among others.

Playing Michael Westen’s former girlfriend Fiona Glenanne is actress Gabrielle Anwar. Anwar is best known for her role as Donna in Scent of a Woman, Marti Malone in Body Snatchers and on The Tudors as the character Margaret.
