"With the adrenaline-pumping NIKITA paired with hits THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and PRIVATE PRACTICE, Thursday nights on /A\ is a new destination for viewers this Fall," said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. "The gorgeous and talented Maggie Q leads an excellent ensemble cast, all complimented by gripping, action-packed plotlines."

In NIKITA, Division is an ultra-secret government agency whose operatives are recruited young with severed ties to family, friends and society. Trained to be invisible assassins, no one ever leaves Division - except the charming and deadly NIKITA, who has managed to escape, making it her mission to undermine the now-corrupt organization. A force to be reckoned with, the rogue Nikita taunts Division, staying on their radar, but always one step ahead. Yet as determined as Nikita is to bring down her former agency, there are those just as determined to stop her, including Division's newest recruit Alex (Lindsy Fonseca, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES), a beautiful young woman who seems destined to replace NIKITA as their next top operative.
