White Collar had its series premiere yesterday. Garret’s episode is still a month away, but if you were planning on tuning in earlier, this would be the time. The show is getting pretty good reviews, it is on every Friday at 10 and the pilot is available on USANetwork.com. For the TV schedule and everything else you need to know, go to USA’s site.
Garret will play a State Department crook in episode 1×05 of White Collar, a new crime show that follows the head of the FBI’s white-collar crime unit (Tim DeKay) and a con artist (Matthew Bomer) he enlists to help him solve cases. The show will premiere in late October. Other regulars are Tiffani Thiessen (What About Brian), Willie Garson (Sex and the City) and Natalie Morales (The Middleman). The pilot airs on October 23 at 10/9c on USA. The airing schedule for the rest of the season isn’t available yet, but if there aren’t any breaks and the episodes don’t get shuffled, episode five should air some time in late November.
The premise of the show:
WHITE COLLAR revolves around the unlikely partnership of a con artist and an FBI agent who have been playing cat and mouse for years. Neal Caffrey (Bomer), a charming criminal mastermind, is finally caught by his nemesis, G-Man extraordinaire Peter Burke (DeKay). When Neal escapes from a maximum-security prison to find his long-lost love, Peter nabs him once again. Rather than returning to jail for his daring getaway, Neal suggests an alternate plan: he’ll provide his expertise to assist the Feds in catching other notorious and elusive criminals. Initially wary, Peter quickly finds that Neal provides insight and intuition that cannot be found on the right side of the law.
WHITE COLLAR was created and is executive produced by Jeff Eastin (“Hawaii,” “Meet the Marks”) and comes from Fox Television Studios. Bronwen Hughes (USA’s BURN NOTICE, “Breaking Bad,” “Forces of Nature”) directed the pilot.
