Jeff Eastin's USA Summer Series Graceland Gets A New Sneak Peek
Last night, those who tuned into USA for the White Collar season finale were treated to a new sneak peek at Jeff Eastin's upcoming new summer drama Graceland. Clocking in at more than three minutes, the video, which you can watch ahead, gives us a better look at USA's latest law enforcer-focused series, which prompts flashbacks of Point Break and Training Day, set in a typically colorful USA backdrop.
Inspired by a true story, Graceland comes from White Collar's Jeff Eastin and stars Aaron Tveit (Les Miserables) as FBI rookie Mike Warren, who's assigned to join the residents of "Graceland," a Southern California beach house that inhabits undercover agents from the FBI, DEA and U.S. Customs. Rescue Me's Daniel Sunjata plays legendary FBI agents and mentor Paul Briggs. Both men are featured in the sneak peek below, and it seems their relationship will be even more complex than one might expect.
So it seems, in addition to being mentored by Briggs, Mike is also secretly investigating him. That certainly adds an interesting twist to the situation. What's Briggs' deal? Is he a corrupt, bad guy? Or is he a law enforcer who does what needs to be done to get the job done? Hard to say from the above trailer, but with Sunjata in the role, it's not difficult to picture him playing it either way, with a charismatic and engaging character that may have sinister motives.
In addition to Tveit and Sunjata, the cast also includes Vanessa Ferlito, Brandon Jay McLaren, Manny Montana and Serinda Swan, who play other residents and law enforcers living in "Graceland." No premiere date has been mentioned, but surf's expected to be up for this series this summer (2013), which is when USA shows tend to shine brightest.
