USA Network announced the casting of Tiffani Thiessen
in the newly greenlit pilot "White Collar." Also starring Matthew Bomer
and Tim DeKay
, Thiessen will play Elizabeth, a very grounded, intelligent accountant, who also happens to be the wife of FBI Agent Peter Stokes (DeKay).
"White Collar" revolves around the unlikely partnership of a con artist and an FBI agent who have been playing cat and mouse for years. Neal Caffrey (Bomer), an incredibly charming criminal mastermind, is finally caught by his nemesis, G-Man extraordinaire Peter Stokes (DeKay). When Neal escapes from a maximum-security prison to find his long-lost love, Peter nabs him once again.
Rather than returning to jail for his daring getaway, Neal suggests an alternate plan: he'll provide his cunning criminal expertise to assist the Feds in catching other notorious and elusive criminals. Initially wary, Peter quickly finds that Neal provides insight and intuition that cannot be found on the right side of the law.
