Series Order For "Partners In Crime," Pilot For "All In," and "The Cowboy Way" In Development

NEW YORK - October 25, 2012 - Advancing its reality portfolio, USA Network has ordered PARTNERS IN CRIME to series and ALL IN to pilot, with THE COWBOY WAY (working titles) moving into development. The announcement was made today by Heather Olander, senior vice president, alternative programming.

"Our approach to reality storytelling is to showcase a broad spectrum of life's real characters," said Olander. "By partnering with these reality heavyweights, whose distinct voices have influenced the genre, we are offering audiences a new reason to engage with USA."

PARTNERS IN CRIME is a docu-soap featuring one of America's most colorful criminal defense attorneys, Mario Gallucci and his partner, Big Lou Gelormino. These two have made a practice out of taking on infamous cases and are not only partners in the courtroom, they're best friends. And while they may bicker like brothers, they wouldn't miss getting together on Sunday night for a family dinner, complete with Mario's specialty - spaghetti and buffalo chicken meatballs. PARTNERS IN CRIME is produced by Peacock Productions.

ALL IN centers on Brandon Lang, one of the country's winningest handicappers and luckiest men. In the pilot, Lang will knock on the door of an unsuspecting American family with a suitcase full of cash and an opportunity of a lifetime: an ultimate gaming adventure with the chance to hopefully boom, not bust. With real money at stake, he will put his handicapping expertise and luck to the test as he and the family embark on a series of high stakes games to build their bank, one bet at a time. Produced by Studio Lambert, Brian Graden ("South Park") and Lois Curren ("The Osbournes," "Punk'd") serve as executive producers.

THE COWBOY WAY is a docu-series following the lives of the men and women who work on a lone Texas cattle ranch. Faced with the worst single-year drought and wildfires that have claimed more than 4 million acres, the ranchers have begun to sell off their herds in numbers not seen since the Dust Bowl days. As they battle the elements, these ranchers struggle to keep the "cowboy way" alive. It's the only way they've ever known. Produced by Raw TV ("Gold Rush: Alaska").

PARTNERS IN CRIME joins unscripted series THE MOMENT and THE CHOIR - all slated for 2013 premieres. BRIDE OR BEST MAN from Shed Media begins production next month on a pilot.
