USA Network today announced a 13-episode third season order for their one-hour series “Graceland,” a high-stakes serialized drama from creator Jeff Eastin (“White Collar”), which follows a group of elusive undercover agents who live in a web of lies while operating under the same roof. The series is produced for USA by Fox Television Studios.
“This season of ‘Graceland’ took viewers on a wild ride with unexpected character twists, and a heart-stopping cliffhanger that left a lead character’s fate in question,” said USA Network President Chris McCumber. “Jeff Eastin and the talented ensemble cast deliver on all levels, and season three will undoubtedly continue to keep us on the edge of our seats.”
Said Fox Television Studios’ Senior Vice President, Programming, Nancy Cotton, “FTVS truly values the long and fruitful relationship we have with Jeff and USA. We could not be more excited to bring USA viewers another thrilling season of ‘Graceland.'”
The sophomore season followed the dangerous lives of six undercover federal agents living together in a government-seized Southern California beachfront house. These FBI, DEA and ICE agents, whose lies are their lives, struggled to maintain a sense of normalcy. This was especially challenging when former FBI rookie, Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit, “Les Miserables”) returned to “Graceland” to run point on a dangerous mission against the cartel. Briggs (Daniel Sunjata, “Rescue Me”), still concerned about the missing recording that implicated him in a murder, attempted to clean up his life and repair his relationships. The season ended with a stunning cliffhanger: Sid (Carmine Giovinazzo) smothering a hospitalized Mike as Briggs raced to try to save him from Sids deadly hands.
“Graceland” comes from creator and executive producer Eastin (“White Collar”) and Fox Television Studios, and stars Sunjata, Tveit, Vanessa Ferlito (Grindhouse), Brandon Jay McLaren (Falling Skies), Serinda Swan (Breakout Kings) and Manny Montana (Chicago Code). The series is shot on location in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
