WHITE COLLAR Returns TONIGHT at 10/9c on USA Network
In partnership with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, USA is unveiling Real Life White Collar Crimes featuring photos and investigative information about real unsolved high-end crimes in an online gallery and on-air promos. For the first time, WHITE COLLAR fans can see into the real world of stolen objects and help to catch the thieves by contacting the FBI with any leads. In addition to the online gallery, one stolen item will be featured each episode in an on-air spot during the show’s winter season. Fans can go to whitecollar.usanetwork.com to see the complete gallery and get exclusive GetGlue Real Life White Collar Crimes stickers. WHITE COLLAR premieres tonight on USA and airs Tuesdays at 10/9c through March 5.
The stolen items include various artifacts, antiques, artwork and other valuables from around the world. The Real Life White Collar Crimes online gallery includes works by Maxfield Parrish, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Edouard Manet and Johannes Vermeer as well as historically invaluable and irreplaceable art like some of Walt Whitman’s notebooks, Native American Ledger Paintings and paintings by Puerto Rico’s Jose Campeche y Jordan. WHITE COLLAR fans can learn more about the thefts through pictures and descriptions, including a heartbreaking story about the Davidoff-Morini Stradivarius violin, which was stolen from its owner, Erica Morini, while she was on her deathbed in 1995. Morini was one of the foremost violinists of the 20th century, a prodigy whose international career began at the age of 12 and lasted well into her 70’s. But perhaps just as well known as Morini was her violin, a 286-year-old masterpiece that was named for a Russian cellist who once owned it. Crafted by legendary instrument maker Antonio Stradivari, the violin was said to have a sound unequaled by any other and was valued at well over $3 million.
The final episodes of WHITE COLLAR’s fourth season heat up as Neal uncovers secrets of his past, with the help of Peter (Tim DeKay) and Mozzie (Willie Garson). As they get closer to discovering the truth of his father’s (guest star Treat Williams) crimes, an urgent plea from Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen) forces Neal to exclude Peter and the FBI from his plans. The series also stars Sharif Atkins, Marsha Thomason and Hilarie Burton. Guest stars include Jackson Rathbone (“Twilight”), Jessica McNamee (“The Vow”), Titus Welliver (“The Town”), Emily Procter (“CSI: Miami”), Bill Bellamy (“Any Given Sunday”), Scott Evans (“One Life to Live”), Reed Diamond (“Moneyball”) and James Rebhorn (“Homeland”).
WHITE COLLAR was created and is executive produced by Jeff Eastin and comes from Fox Television Studios. Mark Goffman is an executive producer and Jeff King is a co-executive producer.
