USA Network has given a series order to the Jeff Eastin drama pilot GRACELAND, starring Broadway's Aaron Tveit as well as Daniel Sunjata, Vanessa Ferlito, BranDon Jay McLaren and Manny Montana. The one-hour drama comes from Fox Television Studios. Here's a first look at the upcoming series which is set for the Summer of 2013!
Tveit will play Mike Warren, an eager FBI agent fresh out of the Academy. The actor most recently played Frank Abagnale Jr. in the Broadway production of CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, for which he was nominated for the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Actor in a Musical, the Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance, and the Fred Astaire Award for Best Male Dancer on Broadway. The production closed on September 4, 2011.
Tveit's other Broadway credits include Link in HAIRSPRAY, Fiyero in WICKED and Gabe in NEXT TO NORMAL. His television credits include a recurring role on Gossip Girl as well as guest spots on Ugly Betty, Body of Proof and the Good Wife. Sunjata has appeared on Broadway in CYRANO DE BERGERAC, TAKE ME OUT and TWELFTH NIGHT, though he's likely best known for his role on FX's Rescue Me.
