          Season three of the series resumes after a deadly attack on Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit, “Les Miserables”) leaves his roommates struggling to maintain a sense of normalcy.  However, normalcy is difficult to come by in this Southern California beach house full of feds, especially after Paul Briggs gets coerced by his own agency into a high-risk cover operation within the Armenian Mafia.  In addition, Briggs' pregnant counterpart, Charlie DeMarco (Vanessa Ferlito, “The Sopranos”) is on a mission to find the money launderer who nearly killed her, going undercover in the Florida Everglades with the aid of an unlikely friend.  Meanwhile, housemates Joe 'Johnny' Tuturro (Manny Montana, “Chicago Code”), Dale Jakes (Brandon Jay McLaren, “Falling Skies”) and Paige Arkin (Serinda Swan, “Breakout Kings”) find their "normalcy" as federal agents living in an undercover world of their own, each with bad guys to pursue and secrets to keep.  Now these FBI, DEA and ICE housemates must rebound, reunite and rebuild their life in their sanctuary known as GRACELAND

          “GRACELAND is a truly gripping drama series with strong, dynamic characters and a knack for shedding light on the ‘human element’ of some very provocative storylines,” said Liu.  “As a fan of the series since its launch, I am so excited to be a part of this production and direct an episode for season three.”

          Liu has achieved tremendous critical and commercial success in film, television and on Broadway.  She currently co-stars in and directed two episodes of the highly rated drama series “Elementary,” marking her television directorial debut.  In 2014, Liu directed her first short film, “MEENA,” based on a chapter from Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn’s bestselling book “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide.”  This searing short film dealt with child trafficking in India and helped to raise awareness for UNICEF’s child protection programs worldwide.  A passionate human rights advocate, Liu has been involved with UNICEF as an ambassador for the past 10 years.
