USA NETWORK KICKS OFF ACTION-PACKED SPRING LINEUP WITH NEW SEASONS OF LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT AND IN PLAIN SIGHT

New Faces and Guest Stars Illuminate 10pm slots on Tuesday and Wednesday Nights

NEW YORK, NEW YORK � February 26, 2010 � USA Network will offer all-new seasons of its highly-rated series LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT and IN PLAIN SIGHT this spring featuring 16 consecutive action-packed episodes and all-new time slots. The line-up continues the network's commitment to 10pm quality programming with the ninth season of LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT premiering Tuesday, March 30 followed by the season three premiere of IN PLAIN SIGHT on Wednesday, March 31.

IN PLAIN SIGHT reigned as the most-watched series on basic cable Sundays in 2009. LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT was second only to IN PLAIN SIGHT on Sundays in 2009 among total viewers and ranked as the #3 drama among P25-54, P18-49 and households.

Season nine of LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT gets underway as we say goodbye to old friends and welcome new faces to the Major Case Squad. Saffron Burrows ("Boston Legal," "Troy"), the beautiful and talented SAG nominee, becomes the newest partner to Jeff Goldblum's Detective Zach Nichols. As Detective Serena Stevens, Burrows plays a highly educated, worldly single parent with a broad range of life experiences to draw upon in solving even the toughest of cases. Teamed with Detective Zach Nichols, they create a partnership of challenging intellect and street-smart savvy. Dick Wolf's third installment in the "Law & Order" franchise follows the Major Case Squad as it investigates high profile crimes. The cases often revolve around homicides, serial killers, VIPs, government officials and figureheads from the business and creative worlds. Unlike other procedural dramas, CRIMINAL INTENT focuses on the criminal psyche. Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio steps into the role of Captain Zoe Callas after an action-packed tw o-part series premiere. The exciting guest line-up for season nine includes Dan Lauria, Ralph Macchio, Dan Butler , Tracy Pollan and William Mapother. LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT comes from Wolf Films and Universal Cable Productions.

The season three premiere of action-packed IN PLAIN SIGHT kicks off in dramatic fashion as Mary Shannon (Mary McCormack) and partner Marshall (Frederick Weller) search for the person who nearly killed Mary in the season two cliffhanger. The most-watched series on basic cable Sundays in 2009, IN PLAIN SIGHT stars Mary McCormack as Mary Shannon, a U.S. Marshal working in the highly secretive witness protection program (WITSEC). Her job is to relocate Federal Witnesses, some of whom are career criminals, and some of whom are innocents who had the misfortune of witnessing a crime. But they all have one thing in common � someone wants them dead. Mary's job is to make sure this doesn't happen, while at the same time dealing with her own dysfunctional family. IN PLAIN SIGHT also stars Frederick Weller, Nichole Hiltz and Paul Ben-Victor, along with returning guest-stars Lesley Ann Warren, Cristian de la Fuente, and Joshua Malina. Oscar, Emmy and Grammy winner Rita Moreno ("Cane," "The Guardian"), four-time Emmy winner Allison Janney ("The West Wing," "Juno"), Steven Weber ("Wings," "Studio 60"), Tess Harper ("No Country for Old Men," "Breaking Bad"), Josh Cooke ("Committed," "Four Kings") and Donnie Wahlberg ("Boomtown," "The Sixth Sense") have also been cast to guest star in season three in the USA Network hit original series.
