'White Collar' creator 'wants more than seven seasons'

By
White Collar creator Jeff Eastin has confirmed that he has no plans to end the show in the near future.

Series star Matt Bomer is contracted for seven seasons of the USA drama, but Eastin told Entertainment Weekly that he envisions the show running even longer.

"I don't think there's a limit," said the showrunner. "Tim DeKay [Peter Burke] has jokingly said he'll go ten seasons without even thinking... and I'd like nothing else more."

Eastin also insisted that Bomer's rising career in movies - following the release of last year's Magic Mike - will not affect the actor's commitment to White Collar.

"We've talked and one of the great things about doing a cable schedule is that it still leaves a really huge hiatus for him to go do features," Eastin explained. "So I think we'll end up doing more than seven seasons on White Collar."
