‘Graceland’ Episode Guide (Aug. 20): Briggs’s Undercover Sent After Mike

“The Head of a Pig” (08/20/14) – Briggs and Paige decide that Mike is willing to push the boundaries too far, so they plan on using Briggs’s undercover to end Mike’s operation, but things go horribly awry when they underestimate the power of a dirty cop.

The sophomore season of USA’s “Graceland” follows the high-stakes investigative lives of six undercover federal agents who live together in a government-seized Southern California beachfront house. These FBI, DEA and ICE agents, whose lies are their lives, struggle to maintain a sense of normalcy.

This is especially challenging when the former FBI rookie, Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit, “Les Miserables”) returns to “Graceland” to run point on a dangerous mission against the cartel. Meanwhile, Briggs (Daniel Sunjata, “Rescue Me”), still concerned about the missing recording that implicates him in a murder, attempts to clean up his life and repair his relationships.

The series also stars Vanessa Ferlito (“The Sopranos”), Manny Montana (“Chicago Code”), Brandon Jay McLaren (“Falling Skies”) and Serinda Swan (“Breakout Kings”).

From Fox Television Studios, “Graceland” comes from creator and executive producer Jeff Eastin (“White Collar”) and is inspired by true events. The series was one of 2013’s top new cable dramas of the summer, capturing a broad freshman audience, averaging 4 million total viewers.
