Show Summary

White Collar is an American comedy-drama police procedural television series created by Jeff Eastin and produced by Fox Television Studios about a white collar criminal who agrees to help the FBI catch other white collar criminals using his expertise as an art and securities thief, counterfeiter and racketeer.

The series premiered in the USA on USA Network on 23 October, 2009.

White Collar premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel on Wednesday 14 April 2010, at 20h00. It moved to M-Net Series Showcase from Season 5, when the former channel became defunct in 2013. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 3 premiered on M-Net Series on Wednesday 18 April 2012, at 20h30. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are 16 episodes in the third season.


White Collar centers on the unlikely crime-solving partnership between Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer), a charming con man turned consultant for the FBI, and Peter Burke (Tim DeKay), the Federal Agent charged with keeping him on the right side of the law.

When Neal escaped from a maximum-security prison to find his long-lost love, Peter had to bring him to justice - for the second time. Rather than return to jail, Neal suggested an alternate plan: he would provide his criminal expertise to assist the Feds in catching other elusive criminals in exchange for his eventual freedom.

Initially wary, Peter quickly found that Neal provided insight and intuition that couldn't be found on the right side of the law.

Since then, Peter and Neal have amassed an enviable record within the White Collar Crimes Unit and laid the foundation for a deep friendship.

But as some have said about Neal, once a con, always a con, and while his unique skills have helped Peter close some high profile cases, his methods have endangered both his friends and fellow colleagues and drawn increased scrutiny from the higher-ups.

Eventually, Neal earned a chance to have his sentence commuted, but when he realised the scales of justice were unfairly weighted against him, Neal did the only thing left for him to do: he ran.

Although Manhattan may be in his rearview, the past won't stay behind him for long, and soon both he and Peter will have to face the consequences of the choices they have made.
