“Graceland” will be the latest quirky/addictive character-driven dramedy on USA’s roster — a niche that’s kept them in the top spot in terms of original cable programming. The network announced today that it was giving a series order to the show, which is from “White Collar” creator Jeff Eastin.
Like “White Collar,” “Graceland” sounds like a mix of crime elements and domestic/workplace banter — the series stars Daniel Sunjata (“Rescue Me”), Aaron Tveit (“Howl”), Brandon Jay McLaren (“Falling Skies”), Vanessa Ferlito (“Death Proof”) and Manny Montana (“The Chicago Code”) as agents from the DEA, FBI and U.S. Customs who are forced to live together undercover in a Southern California beach house.
In other works, it’s like “The Real World,” but scripted and with more guns…? Russell Fine directed the pilot, which Sean Daniel executive produce. USA Co-Presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel said of the show that “There aren’t many people we’d trust to run two shows on our air, but Jeff Eastin is one of them.”
The fourth season of “White Collar” starts Tuesday, July 10th at 9pm.
