Tim Dekay and Matthew Bomer On White Collar

Check out the season premiere pictures of the new USA series WHITE COLLAR starring Matt Bomer (NBC’s “Chuck,” “Tru Calling”), Tim DeKay (“Tell Me You Love Me,” “Carnivàle”), Tiffani Thiessen (“What About Brian,” “Fastlane”) and Willie Garson (“Sex and the City,” “John from Cincinnati”) which premieres in October with a 90-minute special episode on followed by 13 one-hour episodes.

I don’t really know what to think of this show just yet. I am happy that Tim DeKay is now a regular on a show as I believe he is a very strong actor but I am less sure about Matt Bomer. Garson is usually funny so no worries there. Tiffani Thiessen, on the other hand, is a different ballgame. I have seen here in so many shows and I am yet to be impressed by her. Nevertheless, since this show is on USA, I have high expectations for White Collar.

Show Summary: USA Network’s newest original series, “White Collar,” stars Matt Bomer (NBC’s “Chuck,” “Tru Calling”), Tim DeKay (“Tell Me You Love Me,” “Carnivàle”), Tiffani Thiessen (“What About Brian,” “Fastlane”) and Willie Garson (“Sex and the City,” “John from Cincinnati”) in a 90-minute special premiere followed by 13 one-hour episodes. The series will be shot on location in New York.

“White Collar” is about the most unlikely of partnerships between a con artist and an FBI agent who have been playing cat-and-mouse for years. The story unfolds after Neal Caffrey (Bomer), a charming criminal mastermind, has been caught by his nemesis, G-man extraordinaire Peter Burke (DeKay). After escaping from a maximum-security prison to find his long-lost love, Neal is nabbed by Peter once again. Rather than returning to jail for this daring getaway, Neal suggests an alternate plan: he’ll provide his expertise to assist the feds in catching other notorious and elusive criminals – in return for his freedom.

Initially wary, Peter quickly finds that Neal provides insight and intuition that cannot be found on the right side of the law. Thiessen plays Elizabeth, Peter’s wife, an intelligent, high-profile event planner. Garson plays Mozzie, a friend of Caffrey’s who has a strong distrust of the Feds and an unyielding belief in conspiracy theories about everything; with his ear to the ground, Mozzie is always tapped into what’s happening on the street. Diahann Carroll (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Dynasty”) guest-stars in the pilot and will be recurring in several episodes.

“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. Clifton Campbell (“Street Time,” “Profiler”) and Tom Garrigus (“Swingtown,” “Everwood”) serve as consulting producers.
