USA Picks Up New Series From The Creator Of White Collar

Graceland promo shot

USA thinks Jeff Eastin is so nice that they want to work with him twice. Ahem, my terrible joke aside, USA has indeed decided to give a full season order to a new drama from the aforementioned creator and executive producer of White Collar.

The new series is called Graceland, and revolves around a diverse group of law enforcement agents from different government branches. Some of them come from the Drug Enforcement Agency, others from the FBI, and even some from the U.S. Customs department. These agents of varying backgrounds find themselves forced to cooperate when they are all assigned to the same Southern California undercover beach house.

USA exec Jeff Wachtel said the following about the series order - "Graceland is very much in our sweet spot, it has that fantastic and rich look associated with most of our shows, but we also want to go to very edgy and dark places with it. The characters’ day job takes them to places we haven’t gone with our original series.”

Eastin will not be leaving his job at White Collar to run Graceland though, as USA has agreed to coordinate the two show's schedules so that Eastin can effectively manage both. Eastin is currently putting together a writing team for the latter series, and production is expected to begin shortly after filming of White Collar season four is complete.

Does the concept of Graceland interest you? Or do you wish USA would do something other than cop and court related shows?

Personally I can never get enough of procedurals, if they're done right. USA has had, in my view, only terrible shows for the last 5 years. Maybe they'll do better if they return to something they know, and can do by the books. I'm going to give it a chance.

I almost always give new shows a chance and since it's from the creator of "White Collar," I'll give it the benefit of the doubt for a bit.

Same as tinalessia, I'll probably try it. But it's hard to know more without at least a trailer.

Sounds like that show Wanted from a few years back. Just saying.
