Two of the network’s hit original dramas return on Thursday, October 17, beginning with the fifth season premiere of sexy, sophisticated series WHITE COLLAR at 9pm and the nail-biting final six episodes of Covert Affairs season four at 10pm.
White Collar picks up after the shocking arrest of FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) on murder charges. Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) must make a deal with the devil to help clear his name. The series also stars Willie Garson, Tiffani Thiessen, Marsha Thomason and Sharif Atkins. Garson makes his television directorial debut this season and DeKay returns to direct another episode.
At the end of May we told you to expect a DVD release for White Collar – Season 4 on October 8th, and today Fox Home Entertainment alerted retailers that this title is indeed confirmed for that date. Priced at $39.98 SRP for a 4-disc set, you’ll get 16 episodes plus these extras:

Bridget Regan continues to be a red-hot property, now with a major arc on White Collar.
The Beauty and the Beast stunner will recur in nine episodes of the USA Network drama as Rebecca Lowe, a rare book scholar and, ultimately, a new love interest for Matt Bomer’s Neal, our sister site Deadline reports.
As such, Regan will no longer be guesting on Sons of Anarchy this coming season, TVLine has confirmed.
What’s next on White Collar after Peter’s arrest? — Maria
ADAM: Surprisingly, It doesn’t take long for Peter to get back into the FBI’s good graces, and once he does, he looks into starting a new joint task force with the NYPD for large-scale busts. In the meantime, Peter and Neal will fall into their old routine quickly. In fact, before you know it, Neal will be posing as a butler for an affluent family Elizabeth knew way back when so that he can investigate the rebellious eldest son. Call me crazy, but I’m not so sure that Neal will be very good at taking orders.
Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) is getting a new handler in Season 5 of “White Collar,” and he’s played by someone who should be a familiar face for USA viewers — “Common Law’s” Warren Kole (last seen being decidedly nutty on Fox’s “The Following).
The Season 4 finale saw Peter (Tim DeKay) taking the fall for shooting a senator, a crime that was actually committed by Neal’s estranged father, James (Treat Williams). Instead of clearing Peter’s name, James chose to run, leaving Neal’s handler and surrogate father behind bars, which is where he’ll be at the beginning of Season 5.
Because of Peter’s predicament, Kole will recur as Agent David Seigel, Neal Caffrey’s noticeably young, decidedly handsome and ambitious new handler, HuffPost TV has learned exclusively.
“White Collar” will feature a number of other notable guest stars when the USA series returns this fall. We’ve also learned that Richard Thomas (“The Americans”), Zachary Booth (“Damages”) and Kara Hayward (“Moonrise Kingdom”) will appear in the second episode of Season 5.
The Hollywood Reporter: There were several scenes in the finale, the Neal-Sara moments on the Empire State Building’s 103rd floor in particular, that seemed nearly impossible to shoot. How were those shots pulled off?
Jeff Eastin: The actors were harnessed in, and it was one of those things where we had to take the harnesses out later on. There was a very small camera crew out there. Everyone was sort of tethered. It was pretty intense. There was that structure that was 10-and-a-half feet up and that’s pretty much it between you and the ground. Luckily, Matt and Hilarie didn’t have trouble with heights.
It looks like a double douse of Time DeKay at 10pm tonight – the White Collar Season finale AND on Body of Proof at 10 pm on ABC!
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.
