InSecurity is a Canadian action comedy television series. The series focuses on a team of spycatchers set at the fictional Canadian National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA). The series is set in Ottawa but filmed primarily in Regina. The initial order is for 13 episodes, with the premiere occurring on January 4, 2011.
One of the producers called it "the 24 of Canada"; one writer described it as "24 without Jack Bauer; CSI minus the science; and James Bond - if James Bond were Mr. Bean."
The initial pilot focused on the tedium involved in electronic eavesdropping but the decision was made that it would be too "niche". A second pilot was done with a more 24 approach.
On February 11, 2011, CBC announced that the show was renewed for a second season.
