The series was the #1 show of 2008, and recently wrapped production on its second season in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It premiered last month with double-digit increases over the premiere season's total average. Sepiol also oversees WHITE COLLAR, USA's most recently greenlit original series, which stars Tim DeKay, Matthew Bomer and Tiffani Thiessen and is written and executive produced by Jeff Eastin.

Prior to joining USA, Sepiol worked as Paul Nagle's assistant at the William Morris Agency. Outside of his work in television, Sepiol wrote two one-act plays that were produced at the Plymouth Theater in Los Angeles in the fall of 2004.
