With summertime fast approaching, casting news is heating up for USA Network’s stable of “blue sky” dramas.

In the new run’s sixth episode, the head-turning redhead will play Franka, a German flight attendant whom Auggie meets while en route to Istanbul. But in addition to coffee and pillows, Franka also offers assistance, when Chris Gorham’s vacationing spy guy gets pulled into a mission.

Mader also has a lead role on the midseason ABC comedy Work It.

But wait, there’s more casting goodness: TVLine has also learned exclusively that Brady Smith  — aka the real-life husband of White Collar regular Tiffani Thiessen — will be appearing on his missus’ show, which uncorks its third cycle also on June 7.

  • Is it sad that when I read “star’s husband” in this title, my brain immediately started fangirling at the possibility of Jeffrey Dean Morgan appearance? Alas, wrong star.

    • Jeffrey Dean Morgan is nobody’s husband (he does has a son with Hilarie Burton as well as a son with Sherrie Rose) so I knew it wasn’t him right away. Oh well, Tiffani’s hubby will do in a pinch.

  • Can’t wait for White Collar to get back! It’s an incredibly good show where everything is great and nothing is annoying. So refreshing! So many shows start to disappoint after a while… but not with White Collar! It makes you happy while watching :)

  • What I want to know is whether Annie will be offering Auggie assistance/comfort/pillows this season — or vice versa –
