USA NETWORK TO PREMIERE "PLAYING HOUSE" ON TUESDAY, APRIL 29 (10-11 p.m. ET/PT)

New Half Hour Comedy Series To Be Paired With Modern Family And Debuts with Two Back-To-Back Episodes

UNIVERSAL CITY - February 28, 2014 - USA Network's new comedy PLAYING HOUSE will premiere Tuesday, April 29 (10-11 p.m. ET/PT) immediately following top comedy series MODERN FAMILY with two back to back episodes. Following the premiere, the series will resume with a new half-hour episode every Tuesday beginning May 6 (10-10:30 p.m. ET/PT). The series, starring and executive produced by Jessica St. Clair ("Best Friends Forever") and Lennon Parham ("Best Friends Forever"), is a single-camera buddy comedy about what happens when two best friends come back together just when they need each other the most.

Childhood best friends Maggie Caruso and Emma Crawford have shared countless adventures growing up together in the charming town of Pinebrook, CT. Now, Maggie and Emma are in store for one of their biggest adventures yet - raising a baby. When Maggie discovers that her husband is having an online affair with a muscular German woman, Emma gives up her burgeoning business career in China to stay in their hometown and help Maggie raise her baby. Meanwhile, as Maggie prepares for the birth of her first child and the fallout of her marriage ending, Emma must confront the past that she abruptly left behind thirteen years ago -- her first love and local cop Mark (Keegan-Michael Key), her prim-and-proper mother (Jane Kaczmarek) and a small town that she's never felt comfortable in. Despite their differences - Emma is brash, bold, and assertive while Maggie is grounded, rational, and safe - the women complement each other the way only best friends can, by facing the challenges of their past, present and future--together.

Joining St. Clair and Parham are comedic actors Keegan-Michael Key ("Key and Peele"), Jane Kaczmarek ("Malcom in the Middle"), Brad Morris ("Seeking a Friend for the End of the World"), Zach Woods ("The Office") and Gerry Bednob ("The 40-Year-Old Virgin"). Additionally, an all-star line-up of comedy vets will stop by the small town of Pinebrook, Connecticut. Bobby Moynihan ("Saturday Night Live"), Lindsay Sloane ("Horrible Bosses"), Jason Mantzoukas ("The League"), Ian Roberts (Upright Citizen Brigade Co-Founder), Andy Daly ("Eastbound and Down") John Lutz ("Saturday Night Live"), Larry Wilmore ("The Daily Show with Jon Stewart") and Ryan McPartlin ("Chuck") will all appear in guest star roles on the series.

In addition to St. Clair and Parham, PLAYING HOUSE is executive produced by Scot Armstrong ("Old School," "Hangover 2") of American Work, Judah Miller ("King of the Hill") and Ravi Nandan ("Hesher"). The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions.
