What's Cookin' Today Hour ONE:

Kurtwood Smith Tells Us About His Role in CBS' CHAOS - Premiering April 1st!

CHAOS is a comedic drama about a group of rogue CIA spies in the Clandestine Administration and Oversight Services (CHAOS), who combat threats to national security amidst bureaucratic gridlock, rampant incompetence and political infighting. The team tackles high-risk foreign intelligence missions using manipulation, deception and wit to succeed. Rick Martinez was dismayed when his dream job as a spy was eliminated on his first day; however, CIA Deputy Director H.J. Higgins, a calculating mastermind and the head of CHAOS, recognizes Rick's unique skill set and places him as an unwitting mole inside the department.

Martinez joins the team under Michael Dorset, a psychologist-turned-CIA operative and a tactical genius motivated by pure paranoia. Working with Dorset is Scottish-born Billy Collins, decommissioned from the British Secret Service and deported from the United Kingdom; and Casey Malick, a 12-year veteran of the agency with an understated demeanor and the ability to transform into a "human weapon."

While Martinez's instincts about who he can trust are constantly tested, he seems to have a worthy confidante in the new Deputy Director, Adele Ferrer, who appears to have his best interest at heart. Or, should he rely on officer Fay Carson, an alluring agent and an expert at deciphering people's "tells"?

Attacking each assignment with unparalleled confidence and gusto, these operatives perform covert operations, exert political influence and eradicate all manner of evil - and that's just to survive the morning staff meeting.

About Kurtwood Smith: He spent eight seasons playing the popular Red Foreman on "That ‘70s Show." His additional television credits include "Worst Week," "Medium" and "Picket Fences," on the Network, "24," "House," "The X Files," "Star Trek: Voyager," "Deep Space Nine," "Newhart" and "The A Team," among many others.

Smith also starred in a short film, "12:01 P.M.," about a man caught in a time warp, which was nominated for an Academy Award in the "Best Short" category.

Smith is very involved in his community. He participates annually in the Day of the Child, where he and his wife, Joan, met the foster child who is now a part of their family. Every year, he brings Christmas gifts to the children at United Care Group Homes, and he was named to the Celebrity Hall of Fame by the Winners Circle for Children for his support of Easter Seals. In the past, he has participated in the Special Olympics and supported the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
