Serinda Swan Joins the Cast of USA's "Graceland"
She'll play Paige Arkin, "an intuitive and merciless DEA undercover agent living at the mansion."

[via press release from USA]



NEW YORK - November 30, 2012 - Serinda Swan ("Breakout Kings," "Hawaii Five-O") has been tapped as a series regular on USA's gritty new drama GRACELAND opposite Daniel Sunjata ("Rescue Me"), Aaron Tveit ("Les Miserables"), Vanessa Ferlito ("Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps"), Brandon Jay McLaren ("The Killing"), and Manny Montana ("Chicago Code"). From WHITE COLLAR executive producer and creator, Jeff Eastin, the series will premiere summer 2013 on USA.

GRACELAND delves into the lives of an elusive group of undercover agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and US Customs, whose worlds collide at a repossessed Southern California beachfront mansion called "Graceland."

In GRACELAND, Swan stars as Paige Arkin, an intuitive and merciless DEA undercover agent living at the mansion. She uses her sex appeal and unorthodox resourcefulness to infiltrate deep into drug organizations. Partying just as hard as she works, Paige gets a rush from being at "Graceland," as if living a lie is her drug of choice.

Paige's roommates at "Graceland" include legendary FBI agent and house mentor Paul Briggs (Sunjata), by-the-books FBI rookie, Mike Warren (Tveit), strong-willed DEA agent Catherine "Charlie" Lopez (Ferlito), quick-tempered US Customs agent Dale Jakes (McLaren) and fun-loving prankster FBI agent Joe "Johnny" Tuturro (Montana).

From Fox Television Studios, Jeff Eastin serves as creator and executive producer. Sean Daniel served as executive producer on the pilot with producer Russell Fine (WHITE COLLAR, NECESSSARY ROUGHNESS) directing.

Fox Television Studios produces scripted and unscripted programming for US broadcast and cable networks, and international broadcasters. The studio produces the hit series Burn Notice, currently in its sixth season, and White Collar, now in its fourth season and renewed for season 5, both for USA; and the series The Glades for A&E, recently renewed for season four. FtvS also is in production on Graceland, its new series for USA from White Collar creator Jeff Eastin; The Americans for FX, starring Keri Russell, scheduled to premiere in early 2013; and Maron, a fictionalized look at the life of comedian and podcast sensation Marc Maron, for IFC. The studio is also developing and producing several pilots, including Sirens for USA, written by Denis Leary and Bob Fisher who executive-produce along with Jim Serpico (project is from Leary and Serpico's Apostle and Fox TV Studios). FtvS also produces original movies for various cable networks. Home Alone: The Holiday Heist, starring Malcolm McDowell, will air this winter on ABC Family, and Prosecuting Casey Anthony, starring Rob Lowe, will air in 2013 on Lifetime.
