USA NETWORK ANNOUNCES POWERFUL NEW THURSDAY NIGHT LINEUP WITH HIT SERIES "SUITS" AND DENIS LEARY'S NEW ORIGINAL COMEDY "SIRENS" PREMIERING THURSDAY, MARCH 6

Season Eight of the Fan-Favorite PSYCH Premieres on Wednesday, January 8 and WHITE COLLAR Returns from Winter Hiatus on Thursday, January 9

NEW YORK - December 9, 2013 - USA Network will premiere a dynamic Thursday night line-up this March featuring the mid-season premiere of the critically-acclaimed series SUITS on Thursday, March 6 at 9/8c, followed by the series premiere of new half-hour comedy SIRENS at 10/9c. The highly anticipated eighth season of PSYCH returns on Wednesday, January 8 at 9/8c and WHITE COLLAR comes back from hiatus on Thursday, January 9 at 9/8c.

Season three of the popular series SUITS returns Thursday, March 6 at 9/8c with six episodes, and features guest star appearances by the most decorated Olympian of all-time, Michael Phelps (playing himself as a client of Pearson Specter) and Gabriel Macht's famous father, Stephen Macht. Picking up in the wake of an emotional and shattering murder trial, Harvey (G. Macht) and Jessica (Gina Torres) address the firm's future, while Louis (Rick Hoffman) threatens to expose the truth about Mike (SAG nominee Patrick J. Adams). SUITS also stars Meghan Markle and Sarah Rafferty. Additional guest stars include, Emmy(R) winner Zeljko Ivanek, Jamey Sheridan, Damon Gupton and Patrick Fischler.

Leading out of SUITS, the network will premiere the new half-hour comedy series SIRENS, from the distinct comedic point of view of Denis Leary and Bob Fisher, on Thursday, March 6 at 10/9c with two back-to-back episodes. SIRENS follows the ridiculous antics of three Chicago EMTs. A group of unruly men when it comes to their personal lives, these guys are the best in the business professionally and can handle any life-threatening situation that winds up in their ambulance. Good looking and sports-loving Johnny (Michael Mosley) leads the crew, featuring his outspoken and refreshingly honest longtime best friend Hank (Kevin Daniels) and impressionable and eager new recruit Brian (Kevin Bigley). Offering a needed female perspective is Theresa (Jessica McNamee), a smart, independent cop with the Chicago PD who finds herself in love purgatory with her ex, Johnny. Together this foursome delve into hot issues such as bromances, friends with benefits and the danger of internet browser history. Guest stars appearing in the 10 episode first season include Emmy winners Jean Smart and Loretta Devine as well as Bill Nunn, Lenny Clarke, Nora Dunn and John Scurti.

"We are incredibly excited about our powerful Thursday night line-up," said Jackie de Crinis, executive vice president of original programming, USA Network. "As a top cable drama, SUITS has a massive and incredibly young audience that is the perfect fit for fans of Denis Leary and Bob Fisher's unique brand of comedy. Both series feature dynamic male leads, sharp and entertaining banter, and a strong storytelling point of view."

The laughs continue with the season eight premiere of PSYCH on Wednesday, January 8 at 9/8c. USA's longest-running series stars James Roday, Dulé Hill, Corbin Bernsen, Maggie Lawson, Timothy Omundson and Kirsten Nelson, who makes her directorial debut. In the premiere episode Santa Barbara's favorite faux psychic and his sidekick travel to London and come face-to-face with Despereaux (returning guest star Cary Elwes). The 10 episode season also includes the fan-selected "A Nightmare on State Street," directed by Roday, and a special remake of the season one episode "Cloudy with a Chance of Murder." Additional guests include Oscar(R) winner Mira Sorvino, Tony(R) winner Phylicia Rashad, Kristy Swanson, Anthony Michael Hall, Tom Arnold, Billy Zane, Emmy winner Loretta Devine and Bruce Campbell.

Season five of WHITE COLLAR returns with four new episodes on Thursday, January 9 at 9/8c featuring a multi-episode arc with guest star Bridget Regan in a shocking storyline. Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) continues to be blackmailed by the devilish Curtis Hagen (guest star Mark Sheppard) and must complete his final assignment without Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) and the rest of the FBI catching on. Rebecca Lowe (Regan), Neal and Mozzie (Willie Garson) get closer to cracking the Mosconi Codex and a life is put on the line when a dramatic secret is revealed. The series also stars Tiffani Thiessen, Marsha Thomason and Sharif Atkins. Steven Pasquale, Boris McGiver and Asa Somers guest star. DeKay returns behind the camera to direct episode 512.
