USA NETWORK GREENLIGHTS THE PILOT PRODUCTION OF THREE NEW ORIGINALS "EDEN," "WILD CARD" AND "OVER/UNDER"

Order Marks Six Pilots for the Network, Including Previously Announced COMMON LAW, NECESSARY ROUGHNESS and A LEGAL MIND

LOS ANGELES, CA - November 3, 2010 - USA Network has given cast-contingent green lights to the pilots EDEN, WILD CARD and OVER/UNDER, bringing the network's order to a total of six pilots in 2010 - USA's largest order ever in one year. With these pilots, the network continues to grow its programming landscape while reinforcing its successful track record as the number one destination for original series. The announcement was made today by Jeff Wachtel, president original programming USA & co-head, original content, Universal Cable Productions.

"Our creative team has done a fantastic job developing shows that live in our brand environment, and also push the envelope of audience expectations," said Wachtel. "We're committed to building the next generation of hits - and these shows hold that level of promise."

EDEN is from Universal Cable Productions and written by Ken and Mary Hanes ("Til Death Do Us Part," "Doc"). The show centers on a young hotel worker who, with the help of his escaped con artist cousin Eddie, gets a job as the concierge at an elite NYC hotel. Together they manage to provide the hotel guests with whatever they desire, at whatever the cost.

OVER/UNDER comes from Fox Television Studios in association with Universal Cable Productions. It is written by Sheila Callaghan ("United States of Tara") and executive produced by Dan Halsted ("Garden State," "Witchblade"). A day trader with a massive gambling problem is fired from his job six months after a bad trade costs his firm millions. Shut out of the job market, he and his beautiful, photographer wife retreat to a neighborhood on the cusp of gentrification. He finds an unlikely partner and starts to turn his life around in an unexpected way.

WILD CARD is executive produced and written by Stephen Godchaux ("Spin City," "Dead Like Me"). What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas... but only if you have a good lawyer. In this witty procedural about people behaving badly, two very different lawyers handle the type of problems that happen after the sun goes down and need to be solved before the sun the comes up. Cary Brokaw ("Closer," "Finding Graceland," "Angels In America") will serve as executive producer. The project comes from Fox Television Studios.

These pilots join USA's slate of recent greenlit pilots including COMMON LAW, NECESSARY ROUGHNESS and A LEGAL MIND, all of which are currently in production or prep. From executive producers Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro ("Miami Medical"), NECESSARY ROUGHNESS stars Callie Thorne ("Rescue Me") in the true story of a sexy, newly single psychologist tackling motherhood and her life as a pro-football team's shrink. Also stars Marc Blucas ("Buffy The Vampire Slayer"), Scott Cohen ("Gilmore Girls") and Mehcad Brooks ("True Blood"), and guest stars Concetta Tomei ("Providence") and Amanda Detmer ("Private Practice"). In COMMON LAW, from executive producer Jon Turtletaub ("National Treasure") and starring Michael Ealy ("Barbershop"), couples therapy works wonders for two cops who just can't get along. From Executive Producer Doug Liman (the Bourne Trilogy, USA's COVERT AFFAIRS), A LEGAL MIND stars Gabriel Macht ("Middle Men"), Patrick J. Adams ("Weather Girl"), Rick Hoffman ("Samantha Who?"), Meghan Markle ("Fringe") and Gina Torres ("Huge") along with guest star Victor Garber ("Eli Stone") and centers around a legal sharpshooter who recruits a brilliant young rainmaker. Problem: He has no law degree and he's a bit of an outlaw.
