In Graceland, Your Lies Are Your Life
USA Network’s latest cop drama, Graceland, is about an elusive group of undercover agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and US Customs, who live together under the same roof. Their home and base of operations is a place where nothing is what it seems and everyone has a secret. A fact FBI rookie Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit, Les Miserables) soon discovers. Instead of the desk job in Washington, D.C. he anticipated, Warren is shipped off to sunny California to work undercover for legendary FBI agent, Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata, Smash). The series is produced by Fox Television Studios, and also stars Vanessa Ferlito (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), Brandon Jay McLaren (Falling Skies), Serinda Swan (Baytown Outlaws), and Manny Montana (Cybergeddon).
Set along the Californian Pacific Coast, the agents live in the lap of luxury in a home confiscated by a drug lord with an Elvis obsession. When Warren arrives he has to move in to the room of a recently departed agent, but quickly learns the quirky personalities of his new roommates. Set along the beach, Warren soon learns that he’s not on the East Coast anymore. Suntan lotion, shorts, flip-flips, and surfing are words now in his vocabulary. Under the tutelage of his mentor, Briggs, Warren begins to adapt to the Californian way of life. The unassuming, laid-back scenery masks a seedy criminal element that forces Warren to realize that life in Graceland isn’t all fun and games. (More…)
