Four Episode Stills Added for “Graceland”

Four new episode stills from the pilot of “Graceland” have been added to the gallery. Months ago, I saw that the first episode’s title was called “The Break,” so that’s what it’s been tentatively labeled as. Edit: High-res versions have replaced the previous pictures!

USA Orders Full Series for “Graceland”

June 29, 2012 • Category: Graceland, Television News 0

After months of waiting, USA Network has confirmed that they’ve picked up a full series order for “Graceland”! Created by Jeff Eastin (“White Collar”), the new series focuses on a group of FBI, DEA, and US Customs agents who are forced to live undercover in a beachside house in Malibu. Daniel Sunjata (“Rescue Me”), Manny Montana (“The Chicago Code”), Vanessa Ferlito (“CSI:NY”), and Brandon Jay McLaren (“The Killing”) also star. No word yet on when the twelve episodes will air. USA co-presidents, Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel, had the following to say on the “Graceland” pickup:

“There aren’t many people we’d trust to run two shows on our air, but Jeff Eastin is one of them. He wrote a brilliant script; [director] Russell [Fine] delivered a superb pilot; Daniel and Aaron anchor an incredible ensemble cast.

“As soon we saw it, there was a consensus. It was one of the highest tasted shows we’ve had.”

“‘Graceland’ is very much in our sweet spot — it has that fantastic and rich look associate 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.”

First Look at Jeff Eastin’s “Graceland”

USA Network recently held their 2012 Upfronts, in which they talked about returning series and upcoming programming. Among the latter was “Graceland,” the pilot Aaron Tveit shot earlier this year, created and written by Jeff Eastin (of “White Collar” fame). “White Collar” co-stars Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay introduced the new series, which was then followed by a trailer.

You can catch the first look at “Graceland” around the 45:45 mark — and there’s a lot of Aaron! In fact, it looks like the series would largely focus on his character. No word yet on whether or not the show has officially been picked up by USA. Screen caps have been added to the gallery. (Many thanks to Kelly at Matt Bomer Fan for the video, which you can also watch here.)

‘Graceland’ Co-Star Tweets Sneak Peeks

March 12, 2012 • Category: Gallery, Graceland, Television News 0

Daniel Sunjata – Aaron Tveit’s co-star in the upcoming Jeff Eastin series, “Graceland” – tweeted some interesting pictures earlier today. In the first, he mentioned that Aaron was with the pilot’s director (Russell Fines) at the house the television series would be based in. Look at that view, overlooking the Pacific! Along with the second picture, Daniel tweeted “rehearsal again.” With this information, can we assume that the new show will start filming soon — perhaps before Aaron returns to the UK to shoot Les Mis? We’ll see!

Aaron to Star in New Jeff Eastin Project for USA Network!

Big news on the Tveit front: according to Deadline, Aaron Tveit is slated to star in the new, still untitled television series created by Jeff Eastin! In the show, he’ll be playing a “freshly minted FBI agent” who lives undercover in a Southern California home along with other federal and local agency members. The rest of the cast has yet to be announced, but viewers can expect another lead to act against Aaron, much like Eastin’s other, hugely popular show, “White Collar.” Congratulations on the big news, Aaron!
