Toronto (May 14, 2013) – Bravo turns on the sirens for specialty television’s most-wanted Thursday night lineup with brand-new series GRACELAND premiering Thursday, June 6 at 10 p.m. ET immediately following the premiere of BOSTON’S FINEST at 9 p.m. ET. From WHITE COLLAR creator Jeff Eastin, the one-hour drama GRACELAND follows the lives of undercover agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and U.S. Customs, who live and operate in a beachfront mansion in Southern California, called "Graceland." Starring Aaron Tveit (Les Misérables), Daniel Sunjata (GREY’S ANATOMY) and Vancouver native, Serinda Swan (BREAKOUT KINGS), the 11-episode series based on true events delves into the lives of this young group of diverse roommates where the question of trust becomes a matter of life or death (visit bravo.ca for local broadcast times).
Additionally, the new unscripted series BOSTON’S FINEST executive produced and narrated by Donnie Wahlberg (BLUE BLOODS), chronicles the daily lives of real-life Boston police officers, on and off the job. The eight-episode series follows the fearless actions of the entire Boston Police Department offering viewers an intimate look at one of America’s most distinctive cities. Viewers journey through the capital of Massachusetts from the streets of Charlestown to the town of Dorchester and get a glimpse into the personal lives of the members of the Gang, Patrol, and Fugitive Units.

GRACELAND (Thursday, June 6 at 10 p.m. ET – Series Premiere) In the series premiere, FBI Agent Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata, GREY’S ANATOMY) is displeased to find out his previous roommate is being replaced by a hotshot new Quantico graduate, Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit, Les Misérables). The fresh-faced Mike isn't thrilled either as he thought he'd be assigned to Washington. After a tense encounter with Catherine “Charlie" Lopez (Vanessa Ferlito, CSI: NY), they two become friends. Mike goes on his first drug bust and ends up undercover on a dangerous mission to free a family from a kidnapping by a powerful drug cartel.
BOSTON’S FINEST (Thursday, June 6 at 9 p.m. ET – Series Premiere) After a stint in Afghanistan, real life officer Jenn Penton patrols Boston with a rare intensity and sense of purpose – particularly when it comes to getting drugs off the street. Meanwhile, Greg Dankers and the Fugitive Unit search for a drug dealer convicted of selling crack cocaine and gun ammunition in a Roxbury school zone.
