TV show description:
Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) — a conman, forger, and thief — is visited in jail by his girlfriend, but it doesn’t go well. This leads him to make his escape from the maximum security federal prison to search for her. He’s recaptured by the same FBI agent, Peter Burke (Tim DeKay), who previously sent him to jail. While out, he gives Burke some information concerning another case. That evolves into a deal that keeps Caffrey out of prison on a work release type of program. In exchange, he must help Burke catch other criminals.
After making the FBI deal, Caffrey visits a thrift store to get some clothes and meets an elderly woman. The handsome conman charms her into letting him live in her mansion. On top of helping the FBI, he’s always using his new position to search for his girlfriend, Kate, who he believes is in trouble.
Special Agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) has an incredible knack for getting into the mind of criminals, making him really good at what he does. He’s the only authority to have ever caught Caffrey. Because he knows Caffrey so well, Burke knows that something’s wrong when the con escapes jail. He certainly doesn’t have complete trust in Caffrey once they start working together, yet he knows Caffrey will help him in the long run.
Elizabeth Burke (Tiffani Thiessen), Agent Burke’s wife, is an event planner and seems to understand her husband’s long hours away from home. She often discusses his cases with him, sometimes helps out, and also has a unique relationship with Caffrey.
Mozzie (Willie Garson) is another conman, and a friend, informant, and confidante to Caffrey. He supplies info to Caffrey that aids him in helping Agent Burke with his cases. Oddly, he’s also Caffrey’s laywer, and knows everything about Kate’s disappearance.
