USA Network Sets Its Summer Slate, Including the Premiere of New Drama ‘Graceland’
USA Network announced its summer schedule today, one that will see the return of "Burn Notice," "Covert Affairs," "Necessary Roughness," "Royal Pains" and "Suits," as well as the premieres of new shows "Graceland" (which comes from "White Collar" creator Jeff Eastin) and the unscripted "Summer Camp."
GRACELAND: Inspired by true events, USA’s new original series focuses on the lives of undercover agents from the FBI, DEA and US Customs who reside and operate under one roof. When forced to give up any shred of normalcy and the question of trust is a matter of life or death, the house becomes a sanctuary, their "Graceland." Stars Daniel Sunjata, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Ferlito, Brandon Jay McLaren, Manny Montana and Serinda Swan. From creator Jeff Eastin, this was a story too good to not be told. Premieres June 6, airs Thursdays at 10/9c.
The official website for “Broken” has been updated with a preview clip from the short film, starring Scottie Thompson and Dominic Rains.
What do you do when you have nowhere to go? The fissures in a couple’s relationship crack wide open after their truck breaks down on an isolated stretch of desert road, finally forcing them to engage one another and acknowledge the emotional strains tearing at their relationship.
