USA orders 'White Collar' creator's federal agent beach house drama

Posted on

Graceland Usa

This has to be the best government agent gig ever.

USA has given a series order to Graceland, a new one-hour drama from White Collar creator Jeff Eastin. The show follows a group of diverse agents – from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and U.S. Customs – who are “forced” to live together in an undercover beach house in Southern California.

Can we expect, from this photo, Point Break the TV show? We can only hope! Here’s an official description of the cast:

Daniel Sunjata (“Rescue Me”) stars as the house’s senior FBI agent Paul Briggs, who has a legendary past but traded in his suit and tie for a more zen existence.  Aaron Tveit (“Gossip Girl”) plays Mike Warren, a freshly minted FBI agent just out of the Academy and dripping wet behind the ears. Vanessa Ferlito (“CSI:NY”) stars as strong-willed DEA agent Catherine “Charlie” Lopez; Brandon Jay McLaren (“The Killing”) plays Dale Jakes, a quick-tempered U.S. Customs agent, and Manny Montana (“The Chicago Code”) plays FBI agent Joe “Johnny” Tuturro, the fun-loving prankster of the house.  Scottie Thompson (“Trauma,” “NCIS”) guests as Lauren Kincaid, a loyal and determined DEA agent dealing with the repercussions of her wounded partner, along with Courtney B. Vance (LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT, “Revenge”) as  Quantico Section Chief special agent Sam Campbell and Jay Karnes (“BURN NOTICE ,” “The Shield”) as DEA group supervisor Gerry Silvo.
