USA Relocates 'Evil,' Sets '4,400' Start Date
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- USA has opted to relocate its freshman drama series "Touching Evil." In addition, the cable channel has set the launch date for "The 4,400," a limited series from executive producer Francis Ford Coppola.

"Evil," which had been airing on Fridays at 10:00/9:00c, will shift to Mondays at 10:00/9:00c beginning May 10. Five new episodes will air in the slot before its season finale on June 14.

As for "The 4,400," the six-hour limited series will kick off with its two-hour pilot on Sunday, July 11 at 9:00/8:00c. It's not clear in what time period the remaining four installments will air.

Here's how USA's press materials describe the series:

4,400 centers on the return of 4,400 people who, previously presumed dead or reported missing, reappear on Earth. Though they have not aged physically, some of them seem to have deeper alterations ranging from superhuman strength to an unexplained healing touch. A government agency is formed to track the 4,400 people after one of them commits a murder. 4,400 is created by Scott Peters ("The Outer Limits"), written by Peters and Rene Echevarria ("Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," "Dark Angel") and executive produced by Francis Ford Coppola and American Zoetrope, and Ira Behr. The science fiction drama will be produced by Viacom Prods. and Renegade 83 with Viacom producing the limited series.

Peter Coyote ("A Walk to Remember"), Joel Gretsch ("Taken"), Jacqueline McKenzie ("Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood"), Michael Moriarty ("Law & Order"), Mahershalalhashbaz Ali ("Threat Matrix"), Laura Allen ("All My Children"), Kaj-Erik Eriksen ("Boston Public") and Chad Faust ("Smallville") all star in the project, which joins fellow original offerings "Monk" (Fridays at 10:00/9:00c beginning June 18) and "The Dead Zone" (Sundays at 10:00/9:00c beginning June 6) this summer on the network.
