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.”

  • 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.

  • 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!
