USA Network, the #1 network in 2010 for an unprecedented five consecutive years among ad-supported networks, will host a bevy of exciting new and recurring guest stars to appear in the original series WHITE COLLAR, ROYAL PAINS and its newest entry FAIRLY LEGAL this winter.

One of television's most exciting shows, WHITE COLLAR returns with a cliffhanger on Tuesday, January 18 at its new time, 10/9c. In the mid-season finale, our beloved Mozzie (Willie Garson)'s life lies in the balance after being gunned down by an unknown assailant. In the first of the return episodes, his survival is in question as con artist Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) and FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) set out to track down his shooter in an exciting episode of revealing consequences. This season features guest stars Andrew McCarthy as Vincent Adler, the man who made Neal who he is today; the incredible Hilarie Burton as Sara Ellis, insurance investigator who helps Neal and Peter hunt down Adler, all the while getting closer to Neal; Diahann Carroll as June, Neal's landlord and the widow of an ex-con herself; Richard Schiff as Andrew Stanzler, a businessman who Peter and Neal believe may be the cause of blackouts in NY, which forces them to swap identities to solve the case; Paul Blackthorne as a mystery man who sets Peter up for a crime he didn't commit; Billy Dee Williams, an old friend of June's late husband, who shows up looking for more than a trip down memory lane; Ross McCall, an old rival of Neal's who returns and now needs his help with Adam Goldberg as a photographer who gets in the middle; Gloria Votsis returns as Neal's old acquaintance Alex Hunter, who holds an important key to the mystery of the music box; and Alexandra Daddario as Neal's love, Kate. WHITE COLLAR also stars Tiffani Thiessen, Sharif Atkins and Marsha Thomason.

USA's #1 show in 2010, ROYAL PAINS returns with all new episodes of season two Thursday, January 20 at its new time, 9/8c, and serves as the launching pad for USA's newest original series FAIRLY LEGAL. Multiple Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) winning actor Henry Winkler continues to recur in his role as Eddie R. Lawson, father to doctor for hire Hank (Mark Feuerstein) and his brother and partner Evan (Paulo Costanzo); and Brooke D'Orsay returns as Paige Collins, Evan's girlfriend. Season two guest stars include Jim Gaffigan as a park ranger who wants to recapture his heightened state he experienced after being struck by lightening; Julianne Nicholson as a woman who wants to swap her high stress lifestyle for the laid back lifestyle of the Hamptons; Gilles Marini as a dance instructor to Divya (Reshma Shetty) and her fiancee pending their upcoming nuptials; and singer John Legend who performs at a Hampton's fundraiser. The show also stars Jill Flint.

FAIRLY LEGAL is USA's newest original scripted series premiering on Thursday, January 20 at 10/9c. It centers on Kate Reed (Sarah Shahi), a top litigator fed up with the endless bureaucracy and daily injustices of the system, who takes a hard turn to become the ultimate anti-lawyer: a mediator. Using her legal savvy, street smarts and pull-no-punches approach to resolving conflict, Kate finds the middle ground for a wide variety of adversaries, from Fortune 500 corporations to bitter divorcees. Recurring guest stars include Richard Dean Anderson in the role of David Smith, a man who has a mysterious connection to Kate's late father; Ethan Embry portrays Spencer, Kate's younger brother and a new father; and Gerald McRaney as Judge Nicastro, who has no tolerance for Kate's lack of regard for the legal establishment. Other guest stars this season include Ken Howard as a clothing magnate whose son is due to inherit the family business; Peter MacNicol, one of the many judges that Kate comes in contact with during her many mediations; Belita Moreno, who was the trusted secretary to Kate's late father; and Eddie McClintock, the star of a cooking show, who finds himself in a dispute about his famous barbeque sauce. FAIRLY LEGAL also stars Michael Trucco, Virginia Williams and Baron Vaughn.
