At ISIS, an international spy agency, global crises are merely opportunities for its highly trained employees to confuse, undermine, betray and royally screw each other. At the center of it all is suave master spy Sterling Archer, whose less-than-masculine code name is "Duchess." Archer works with his domineering mother Malory, who also is his boss. He also has to deal with his ex-girlfriend, Agent Lana Kane and her new boyfriend, ISIS comptroller Cyril Figgis, as well as Malory's lovesick secretary, Cheryl. Written by

One of the major plot lines in the series involves the the identity of Archer's father. Archer grew up believing that his father was a war hero named "John Fitzgerald Archer"; various events in season one suggest that his father may be Maj. Nikolai Jakov of the KGB, Len Drexler of rival spy agency ODIN, or band leader Buddy Rich (although Malory is pretty sure it's either Jakov or Drexler). She later mentions a fourth possibility in the 3rd season, and in the season $ episode "once bitten" an unknown man appears to archer in a flashback, claiming to be his father, potentially ruling out a fifth possibility.
