In a recent statement, USA’s marketing executive, Alexandra Shapiro, said: “With the latest research showing a 40 percent increase in time spent watching TV via VOD, this preview is a key part of our marketing strategy for Graceland. This is a buzzworthy show that should generate a lot of fan excitement among early adopters, who can become advocates for our newest franchise.
