[via press release from USA]


"PSYCH: THE MUSICAL" To Premiere On Sunday, December 15, 2013

PSYCH Star James Roday and Series Creator/Executive Producer Steve Franks (Finally!) Join Twitter and Will Tweet For The First Time During The Panel

SAN DIEGO- July 18, 2013 - PSYCH-O'S have spoken! USA Network today unveiled the victor of the first-ever PSYCH fan vote determining the storyline of a new episode for PSYCH's eighth season. The announcement was made at Comic-Con, during the network's fifth annual PSYCH panel discussion. PSYCH-O's came out in full force, with "A Nightmare on State Street" racking up more than 50% of votes to make it the indisputable champion. From acclaimed director and series star, James Roday ("Mr. Yin Presents...", "Heeeeere's Lassie"), comes a new vision in terror, where an exhausted Gus (Dulé Hill) enters dream therapy to understand the cause of his recent night terrors. But after dream therapy, nothing is ever again what it seems... He soon realizes that in dreams, no one can hear you scream! To see more of what's in store for this season on PSYCH, the season eight trailer is available to view and download here:

Also announced today, "PSYCH: The Musical," a two-hour special episode, will air Sunday, December 15, 2013. In this long-awaited special featuring Santa Barbara's finest singing and dancing, Shawn (Roday) and Gus (Hill) dive into a world that's equal parts mystery and melody to track down an escaped playwright mad man, Z (Anthony Rapp, "Rent"), who, six years earlier, was deemed criminally insane after locking a critic in a back room of the theatre that he burnt to the ground. With little to go on and a fear that Z will kill again, Shawn, Gus and the SBPD are forced to consult with the one person Z confided in while in the institution...a dangerous and familiar villain from Shawn's past, who guides them using cryptic clues to reveal what Z is planning next. The musical was screened last night at Reading Cinemas in San Diego, where the cast arrived in Weinermobiles to greet fans and give a special introduction to the screening.

Both Roday (@JamesRoday) and series Executive Producer Steve Franks (@SteveFranks) joined twitter and sent out their very first tweets from today's PSYCH panel. The panel featured the show's cast, producers and special guest moderator and recurring series guest star, Cary Elwes ("Princess Bride"), and gave fans a behind-the-scenes look into the making of the eighth season of PSYCH.

PSYCH is executive produced by 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.
