Graceland - The Complete First Season

Set in an undercover beach house in Southern California used by the FBI, DEA, and U.S. Customs, the First Season of Graceland follows the house's newest member Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit) fresh out of the FBI Academy and installed in Graceland not only to replace an agent (Clayne Crawford) whose cover was blown in the first episode but also to secretly investigate the house's leader, Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata), who Mike's superiors feel may have turned.

Highlights from the season include Mike getting his first taste of undercover life and meeting Paige (Serinda Swan), Charlie (Vanessa Ferlito) working with a Federale (Vincent Laresca), Mike being hired by Bello (Gbenga Akinnagbe) to train his soldiers, the house helping Lauren (Scottie Thompson) finish her last mission, Mike's handler (Pedro Pascal) taking matters into his own hands to uncover Briggs' secrets, the revelation of the true identity of the drug smuggler Odin, and a mission goes horribly wrong for Charlie forcing Briggs to try and hide her rash actions from the house.

The 3-disc set includes all 12 episodes, deleted scenes, a gag reel, and a featurette on the show's creation and the real Graceland the series is based on.
