Lucy Liu to Direct Season 3 Episode of 'Graceland'
Lucy Liu is keeping busy during her Elementary hiatus.
The actress is set to direct an upcoming episode of USA's hit drama Graceland, the network announced on Thursday.
"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 in a statement. “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.”
The episode, which is slated to air on Aug. 27, marks Liu's fourth stint behind the camera. She directed the 2011 short Meena and two episodes of Elementary, on which she has starred for three seasons.
Graceland hails from Jeff Eastin (White Collar) and centers on a group of FBI, DEA and ICE agents living together in a Southern California beach house. The series returns for season three on June 25 at 10 p.m. on USA.
Liu is repped by ICM, Framework Entertainment and Schreck Rose.
