Lucy Liu is heading to Graceland. The Elementary star and Charlie’s Angels alum has been tapped to direct a season 3 episode of the USA series, EW has learned.

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,” Liu says.  “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 3.”

Liu, who has helmed two episodes of her CBS drama Elementary, will direct the episode slated to air Aug. 27.

Graceland will return Thursday, June 25 at 10 p.m. ET on USA.
