USA NETWORK ORDERS SECOND SEASON OF "GRACELAND," SUMMER'S TOP NEW CABLE DRAMA IN ADULTS 18-49

Gripping Season Finale Of GRACELAND To Air September 12 at 10/9c

NEW YORK - September 10, 2013 -USA Network today announced a 13-episode second season order for the provocative one-hour hit drama series GRACELAND, which follows a group of elusive undercover agents who live in a web of lies while operating under the same roof. Inspired by true events, the series is summer's #1 new scripted series in cable among P18-49 with 1.8M viewers, and has captured a broad audience to-date, averaging 4M total viewers P2+. The announcement was made today by USA Network President Chris McCumber.

"Jeff Eastin has once again delivered for USA Network. GRACELAND's brilliant serialized storytelling mixed with striking cinematography and a captivating ensemble cast has clearly resonated with a wide audience," said McCumber. "We're proud to be the home of summer's top new cable drama and anticipate GRACELAND will be a long-term player for the network."

GRACELAND quickly drew a loyal and consistent audience since its June 6 debut, and registered particularly high double-digit growth in L7 lifts of +90% P18-49, +88% P25-54 +95% P18-34 and +75% in P2+ on average season-to-date.

From Fox Television Studios, GRACELAND comes from creator and executive producer Jeff Eastin (WHITE COLLAR) and stars Daniel Sunjata ("Rescue Me"), Aaron Tveit ("Les Miserables"), Vanessa Ferlito ("Grindhouse"), Brandon Jay McLaren ("Falling Skies"), Serinda Swan ("Breakout Kings) and Manny Montana ("Chicago Code").

In GRACELAND, rookie FBI Agent Mike Warren (Tveit) is unexpectedly shipped off to a Southern California beachfront property turned safe house for undercover agents, dubbed "Graceland," and assigned to investigate his would-be mentor - the enigmatic and legendary FBI Agent Paul Briggs (Sunjata).

The series will conclude its 12-episode freshman season on Thursday, September 12 at 10/9c, following the explosive series finale of beloved long-running drama BURN NOTICE at 9/8c. GRACELAND culminates with the much-anticipated reveal of the elusive drug lord "Jangles," as the house divides loyalties between Briggs and Mike. Emotions unravel and tensions run high as Briggs' past resurfaces and his worst fears are realized. Will the "Graceland" house survive the aftermath of this riveting finale?

The entire first season of GRACELAND is currently available on video on demand and USANetwork.com. Fans can access Graceland: Undercover, an interactive second screen experience offering the unique opportunity to live the secret life of federal agents. Graceland: Undercover is available at www.gracelandundercover.tv or for download on audio content recognition-enabled iOS mobile and tablet apps available in the Apple App Store.

From Fox Television Studios, GRACELAND is shot on location in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
