ION TELEVISION ACQUIRES SEASON SEVEN OF FAN FAVORITE CABLE SERIES "PSYCH"

NEW YORK, July 1, 2013 - ION Television today announced the acquisition option pick-up of season seven of USA's hit series "Psych," furthering ION's promise to provide first-class content to its viewers. The deal with NBCUniversal Cable & New Media Distribution adds all 16 new episodes to ION's existing library of seasons 1-6 of "Psych" and includes rights to future seasons.

Recently renewed for its eighth season, "Psych," produced by Universal Cable Productions, is currently the longest running original series on USA. "Psych's" audience appeal puts ION Television in the top 15 networks on Saturday nights among Adults 25-54 and 18-49. The series' smart and comedic sensibility makes it the most upscale and youngest show in ION Television's lineup, with an average age of 47 -- nearly 5 years below the network's average.

"As we expand our long-standing relationship with NBCUniversal, we are very pleased to make the latest season of 'Psych' available to our audience," said Brandon Burgess, Chairman and CEO, ION Media Networks. "We're excited to double down on the bet we made by adding 'Psych,' a show that has consistently delivered a wide range of viewers since joining our lineup in 2011."

"Psych" is a quick-witted comedy starring James Roday as police consultant Shawn Spencer, who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute the precinct detectives think he is psychic. Dulé Hill stars as Shawn's best friend and reluctant sidekick Gus; Corbin Bernsen as Shawn's disapproving father, who ironically honed his son's "observation" skills as a child; Timothy Omundson as Detective Lassiter; Maggie Lawson as Detective Juliet O'Hara; Kirsten Nelson as Chief Vick; and Kurt Fuller recurs as "Woody" the coroner.

"Psych" is executive produced by Steve Franks, Kelly Kulchak and Chris Henze, from Universal Cable Productions, in association with Tagline Pictures. Mel Damski serves as executive producer/director. Saladin K. Patterson, Andy Berman and Todd Harthan are co-executive producers/writers. Kell Cahoon is consulting producer.
