If thereís one network that television series execs should feel comfortable about joining, itís USA, a channel that doesnít seem capable of canceling any show during its prime. The latest series lucky enough to get an extension is the public service comedy Sirens, which has officially flipped its lights on for a Season 2 return in 2015.
USA is lining up their winter premieres and returns, and that includes start dates for the return of Suits, White Collar and Psych, as well as the debut of their new half-hour comedy from Denis Leary, Sirens. Suits will return Thursday, March 6 at 9/8c, after which Sirens will premiere at 10/9c. As for Psych, the beloved series will be back for its eighth season on Wednesday, January 8 at 9/8c.
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. We knew that USA had its eye on some comedy projects and today the cable channel announced that they've greenlit their first-ever original half-hour comedies. Denis Leary and Bob Fisher's Sirens received a series order, as did Playing House from Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair.
Things are starting to take shape for the comedy pilot Denis Leary has in the works for USA. The Rescue Me co-creator's EMT-focused Sirens, which is set to begin shooting later this month, has cast four of its leads, three male and one female.
Rescue Me is coming to an end this year, but Dennis Leary is already making plans to continue his TV producing career. The comedian and star/co-creator of FX's bold firefighter drama has signed to develop USA's Sirens.
