Graceland stars Daniel Sunjata (Rescue Me), Aaron Tveit (Gossip Girl), Manny Montana (The Chicago Code), Vanessa Ferlito (CSI:NY) and Brandon Jay McLaren (The Killing) as agents for the FBI, DEA and U.S. Customs who are forced to live together in an undercover beach house in Southern California.

The pilot also features guest stars Scottie Thompson (NCIS), Courtney B. Vance (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) and Jay Karnes (The Shield).

“There aren’t many people we’d trust to run two shows on our air, but Jeff Eastin is one of them,” USA co-presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel said in announcing the pick-up. “He wrote a brilliant script; [director] Russell [Fine] delivered a superb pilot; Daniel and Aaron anchor an incredible ensemble cast.”

    CBV to guest star in the first episode? It maaay be just interesting. But even if, i’m not going to watch it since they canceled CI.

    They had me at Eastin, so Sunjata is a seriously cool bonus!!!!

  4. They had me at USA and White Collar. I love White Collar but to be honest, I also trust USA as a network. They have continuously picked up great new shows. This sounds like an intriguing series! I can’t wait to watch!

  11. Justin says:

    They had me at USA network. I practically watch every original show on its network, including White Collar. So I’m definitely in.

  12. Rose says:

    Not very excited, just cause I want my favorite Broadway actor to be doing work in NY and not Cali but I’ll watch to support. Congrats to Aaron and the rest of the cast.

  14. A says:

    Aaron Tveit? I am in!

  15. Rosie says:

    Sounds interesting .. “forced to live together in an undercover beach house”, do they get to vote somebody out?…just kidding!!
    I really like Jeff Eastin and hope this works out well for him.
    White Collar is one of my favorite shows (except for the not well thought out addition of the Sara character, and not too great actress that plays her)..
    Looking forward to seeing Graceland. Congrats Jeff Eastin!
