2013 Summer TV Premiere Schedule: Breaking Bad, The Hero, Under The Dome & More
The summer TV season has begun, as most of the Midseason series have wrapped up and we're starting to see the networks roll out their summer offerings.

The Following's Warren Kole Is Headed To White Collar For Season 5
Warren Kole showed us his tidy side in USA's short-lived cop series Common Law, and then he took things to a creepy level when he headed over to Fox for his role in the cult drama The Following. Now it looks like the actor is headed back to USA for a spot on White Collar. The USA series stars Matt Bomer as Neal Caffrey, a "white collar criminal" who now works with the FBI to help them solve crimes. Kole's set to play a recurring role in the series' fifth season,
Fairly Legal's Peter Ocko Making Comedy Pilot For USA
If all goes well for USA in the coming years, the cable channel may be as well associated with great original comedies as they are with fun original dramas. That seems to be the plan for USA, as they've recently ordered two comedy series, and they just gave the greenlight to a half-hour comedy pilot from Fairly Legal executive producer Peter Ocko, titled Divide & Conquer. This one may be particularly fitting, given USA's plans to air Modern Family later this year, as Divide & Conquer also happens to have a focus on family.
Gale Anne Hurd's Horizon Drama To Start Production For USA, New Drama Slate Announced

Playing House And Denis Leary's Sirens Comedy Get Series Orders At USA
USA's known to incorporate humor in many of their drama series, but until now, the network's focus among its original programming has been on dramas.

Community's Danny Pudi And Grimm's Claire Coffee To Guest Star In Royal Pains Season 5

Jeff Eastin's New USA Series Graceland Pilot Sneak Preview Is Coming Soon To On Demand

Will USA Save Happy Endings?
The move to Tuesday nights definitely didn't help Happy Endings in the ratings. Then again, for an ABC series, a move away from the choice post-Modern Family spot would probably always be a bad thing, given the high ratings of the family-focused comedy. For Happy Endings that move caused the show's numbers to suffer, and the shift to Fridays only made the matter worse. While Happy Endings hasn't been officially cancelled, those of us who appreciate the friends-centered comedy are bracing ourselves for the worst. But there may be hope on the horizon.
USA Expands Its Unscripted Slate With Partners In Crime, The Cowboy Way And All In

Kyle Howard And Joel David Moore Cast In USA's Paging Dr. Freed
USA Network has cast the two male leads for its comedy pilot Paging Dr. Freed. The casting will lift the contingency so the pilot can go forward. The two actors will play brothers who are gynecologists and inherit a medical practice from their recently departed father. An all-in-the-family gynecology practice. Interesting.

Another British format is making the jump over the U.S. television. This time it’s USA Network picking up an American version of the U.K. hit The Choir. This latest entry into the over-saturated singing competition market features choirmaster Gareth Malone, who seeks out and unites American singers “through the power of music”.

Political Animals Full Premiere Episode: Watch The Start Of USA's New Series Here
After spending a good portion of last week and the full weekend in San Diego for Comic Con, I'm still playing DVR catch-up as I adjust to being back on Eastern Standard (and non-SDCC-rush-around) time.
