USA gives series pickup to drama ‘Graceland’

Fox TV Studios' skein hails from 'White Collar' e.p. Jeff Eastin

USA Network is going to “Graceland,” giving an 11-episode series pickup to the law enforcement drama from “White Collar” creator Jeff Eastin and Fox Television Studios.

Series revolves around a disparate group of law enforcement agents who live together in a Southern California beach house while working undercover.

Series stars Daniel Sunjara as an FBI agent with a legendary past who decides to live a more Zen existence. Aaron Tveit plays an FBI rookie while Vanessa Ferlito plays a strong-willed DEA agent. Other cast members include Brandon Jay McLaren, Manny Montana, Scottie Thompson, Courtney B. Vance and Jay Karnes.

Eastin will serve as showrunner on “Graceland” and continue in the same capacity on “White Collar.”

“There aren’t many people we’d trust to run two shows on our air, but Jeff Eastin is one of them,” USA presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel said in a statement.

The “Graceland” pilot was helmed by Russell Fine. Sean Daniel was an exec producer on the pilot.

Fox TV Studios is also the studio home of “White Collar” and USA’s “Burn Notice.” And it has a Denis Leary-produced comedy “Sirens,” based on a British format about young paramedics, that is looking good for an pilot order from the top-rated NBCUniversal cabler.
