The premiere of ABC’s romantic spy-thriller Whiskey Cavalier earned some impressive ratings for the alphabet network. Over its preview after the Academy Awards and subsequent repeat (or encore presentation, as repeats of pilots are often known), the first episode drew a collective 8.2 million viewers. This has to be good news for star Scott Foley, who has a lot riding on the series considering he uprooted his entire family from Los Angeles to Prague, where the majority of the action-filled show is shot. “We’re mostly stuck in Prague -- it's a rough life,” Foley joked when MediaVillage recently caught up with him. “We moved the whole family; my wife is there, and I have three kids in school over there. We love it. I actually grew up overseas, and my wife and I had talked about giving our kids the opportunity to do the same thing. So, when this came along, we jumped at it. We completed the 13 episodes at the beginning of March and the kids are in school there till June, so we will stay and after that travel around.”
