Ready yourself for tonight's premiere of brand new gritty TV drama, Graceland. Visually slick Graceland rewards viewers who persevere.
Graceland is created by Jeff Eastin (NBC's Hawaii, USA's White Collar), and follows members of separate law enforcement branches who are required to work - and live - together undercover in a Californian beach house in an hour long show. '
