Reviews have been favorable for the USA Network’s new show White Collar. White Collar tells the “Catch Me If You Can”-like story of a white-collar criminal who partners with the FBI to help them solve crimes. The series stars Matthew Bomer, Tiffani Thiessen, Willie Garson, Tim DeKay and Diahann Carrol. The website “My Take On TV” visited the New York set for an exclusive interview with the some of the cast and crew from the show.

When “My Take On TV” asked what were some elements that set the show apart from other crime dramas on currently on TV, Bomer said, “Well, I think—I always say I think before I say—please cut that out. [laughs]  Because it’s just—I should just say it.  The signature of USA Network is, characters welcome.  So, first and foremost, you’re gong to get all the great procedural stuff.  It’s really intelligently written.  We’re—I’m no fool, I know this is a writer’s medium.  You can put the biggest stars on the TV screen, but if the writing’s not there, the shows aren’t going to last and we’re so blessed to have Jeff Easton at the helm.  Because these scripts are really smart and fun and unique.  The White Collar world is unique, hasn’t really been completely explored yet and so you’re going to get all the fun procedural stuff, but at the same time, there’s going to be a lot of character elements that come into play as well.  That keep it light and fun and sometimes serious.  So, you do get more back story elements and a lot of interplay, fun interplay between characters that you might not get on a show that’s straight procedural.”
