USA NETWORK GREENLIGHTS UNTITLED SEAN JABLONSKI DRAMA PILOT TO SERIES WITH 10-EPISODE ORDER SLATED FOR SUMMER 2014 PREMIERE

DRAMA FROM UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS STARS MATT PASSMORE

Series Order Builds On Network's Unprecedented Volume of New Originals For 2014

UNIVERSAL CITY, CA -- March 4, 2014 - USA Network has greenlit the new original Sean Jablonski drama pilot to series with a 10 episode order, including the pilot. The series is from Universal Cable Productions (UCP) and executive producer Sean Jablonski (SUITS, "Nip Tuck,") and stars Matt Passmore ("The Glades"). It is slated to premiere this summer.

"This is a powerful new addition to our drama slate and marks the next generation of sophisticated storytelling for USA," said USA Network President Chris McCumber. "Through a culturally resonant story of an imperfect marriage, the series takes a captivating look at real modern day issues facing couples in today's complicated world."

With the addition of this new drama, USA is on track to unveil an unprecedented volume of new originals in 2014. The network previously announced a six episode event series DIG (from UCP and executive producers Tim Kring and Gideon Raff), and this spring will see premieres of two new original comedies (the Fox Television Studios half-hour SIRENS from Denis Leary and Bob Fisher & UCP's Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham's PLAYING HOUSE) as well as the reality series CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST (from Maverick TV and All3Media).

The network also recently picked up the ABC Signature and The Mark Gordon Company-produced BENCHED starring Eliza Coupe ("Happy Endings") and Jay Harrington ("Better off Ted"). The courtroom comedy is from executive producers and writers Michaela Watkins ("Saturday Night Live," "Trophy Wife") and Damon Jones ("Halfway Home").

A provocative drama that explores a marriage that has grown stagnant, the untitled Sean Jablonski pilot follows investment banker Neil Truman (Passmore) through the accidental discovery of his wife's involvement with a male escort. When Neil gains possession of the escort's phone, he uncovers a unique perspective on his life and what motivates women to stray, as his wife Grace (Stephanie Szostak, "R.I.P.D.," "The Devil Wears Prada") contemplates whether her needs are being met and if her marriage is worth saving. The series will film in Atlanta, Georgia, and in addition to Jablonski, is executive produced by Russ Krasnoff ("Community") of Krasnoff/Foster Entertainment.
