After the premiere of Season Seven of Burn Notice, that will serve as a very nice launching platform, USA will premiere the much buzzed about new drama Graceland at 10PM on June 6.
Inspired by true events, USA’s new original series focuses on the lives of undercover agents from the FBI, DEA and US Customs who reside and operate under one roof. When forced to give up any shred of normalcy and the question of trust is a matter of life or death, the house becomes a sanctuary, their “Graceland.” Stars Daniel Sunjata, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Ferlito, Brandon Jay McLaren, Manny Montana and Serinda Swan. From creator Jeff Eastin, this was a story too good to not be told. Remember: Graceland premieres June 6, airs Thursdays at 10/9c.
Plot Synopsis for Graceland
Graduating at the top of his class, FBI rookie Mike Warren (Tveit) anticipates a traditional D.C. desk job when he’s unexpectedly shipped to Graceland. Immediately thrown into his first undercover assignment, he relies heavily on the guidance of legendary FBI agent and mentor Paul Briggs (Sunjata). Briggs is an unusually Zen-like senior agent who notoriously hates the rule book and will go to any length to protect Graceland from the outside world. With an ensemble cast, the series also features Vanessa Ferlito (“Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”) as strong-willed DEA agent Catherine “Charlie” Lopez; Brandon Jay McLaren (“Fallen Skies”) as quick-tempered U.S. Customs agent Dale Jakes; Manny Montana (“Chicago Code”) as the fun-loving prankster and FBI agent Joe “Johnny” Tuturro; and Serinda Swan (“Breakout Kings”) as intuitive and merciless DEA agent Paige Arkin.
