An extended look at the action-packed new USA drama series GRACELAND has just been released, featuring LES MISERABLES star Aaron Tveit and current SMASH guest star Daniel Sunjata in lead roles - two actors who effortlessly move between the realms of Hollywood and Broadway.
GRACELAND stars Tveit, Sunjata and Vanessa Ferlito and others as undercover agents cohabitating in a stylish California abode while tracking their own cases - and each other. Tveit plays young FBI agent Mike Warren, Ferlito plays rough and tumble Charlie Lopez, a DEA agent, Brandon Jay McLaren portrays a studious customs agent, while Manny Montana pranks around as a good-natured FBI agent. Sunjata's role is that of Paul Briggs, an advisor and mentor to them all - and maybe more.
Having viewed the pilot episode, I can tell you that GRACELAND is another strong series that seems poised to deliver a punch every week if the first offering was any indicaiton of the quality to expect from subsequent entries to the series. It's a winner.
USA found much success with Jeff Eastin's previous series, White Collar (which is still running strong on the ever-growing cable channel, four seasons on), so GRACELAND could very well outlive even the King of its title reference. It has potential.
GRACELAND kicks off on USA this Summer.
