BURN NOTICE

When spies get fired, they don't get a letter from human resources. Michael Weston got a "burn notice" and became untouchable � and he has no idea what or who triggered his demise. Stuck in his hometown in Miami, a place he never wanted to return to, with his ex-girlfriend and his old partner, Michael is determined to find out the reason for his sudden termination. Unable to utilize his normal contacts and needing to stay under the spy network radar, he puts his Special Ops training to use to help those who the police can't or won't, in order to fund his ongoing personal investigation. From Fox Television Studios and Fuse Entertainment, executive produced by Mikkel Bondesen, written and co-executive produced by Matt Nix.

USA ORIGINAL SERIES

MONK

Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award winner Tony Shalhoub returns for a sixth season as Adrian Monk, the obsessive-compulsive detective. With great guest-stars, creative cases and an all-star cast including Traylor Howard, Ted Levine and Jason Gray-Stanford, MONK continues to be one of cable's quirkiest and most-watched shows. MONK is executive produced by David Hoberman, Andy Breckman, Tony Shalhoub and Randy Zisk. Fern Field and Tom Scharpling serve as co-executive producers. Anthony Santa Croce and John Collier are producers. MONK is from NBC Universal Television Studio in association with Mandeville Films and Touchstone Television.

PSYCH

The #1 new show on cable in 2006, PSYCH is a quick-witted one-hour drama staring James Roday as young police consultant Shawn Spencer ho solves crimes with powers of observation so acute the precinct detectives think he's psychic -- at least that's what he lets them believe. The series also stars Dul� Hill as Shawn's best friend and reluctant sidekick Gus, and Corbin Bernsen as Shawn's disapproving father, Henry, who ironically was the one who honed his son's "observation" skills as a child. PSYCH is executive produced by Steve Franks ("Big Daddy"), in association with Tagline Pictures' Kelly Kulchack and Chris Henze and NBC Universal Television Studios.

Premiering Friday, July 13 at 10pm/9c

THE 4400

Returning for its fourth season, the series will premiere in summer 2007 with 13 one-hour original episodes. The 4400 explores the travails of the 4400 people who all at once returned in a ball of light to Earth; though the returnees had not aged physically, many of them reappeared with dramatic abilities ranging from enhanced reflexes to precognition. NTAC (National Threat Assessment Command) is the government agency responsible for keeping track of the returnees and investigating all things related to the 4400. Widespread distribution of promicin has created a dangerous new world, a world in which special abilities are no longer the exclusive province of the 4400. Fifty percent of those who take the shot pay the price with their lives, while those who survive are now ostracized by a government determined to rid the world of promicin forever. But promicin distribution was only the first step, and what's next on Jordan Collier's agenda will require an even bigger leap of faith on behalf of believers and non-believers alike. People's Choice Award winner Billy Campbell is set to reprise his role as Jordan Collier for the first time as a series regular in the Emmy�-nominated and critically acclaimed hit series THE 4400. Playing the self-anointed leader of the 4400, Campbell joins other returning cast members including: Joel Gretsch ("Taken") as Tom Baldwin, Jacqueline McKenzie ("Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood") as Diana Skouris, Patrick Flueger ("The Princess Diaries") as Shawn Farrell, Conchita Campbell ("Scary Movie 4") as Maia Rutledge, Megalyn Echikunwoke ("That '70s Show") as Isabelle and Chad Faust ("Saved") as Kyle Baldwin. THE 4400 explores the travails of the 4400 people who all at once returned in a ball of light to Earth; though the returnees had not aged physically, many of them reappeared with dramatic abilities ranging from enhanced reflexes to precognition. NTAC (National Threat Assessment Command) is the government agency responsible for keeping track of the returnees and investigating all things related to the 4400. THE 4400 was created by executive producer Scott Peters and Ren� Echevarria. Ira Steven Behr and Maira Suro return as executive producers. THE 4400 is produced by CBS Paramount Network Television in association with Sky Television, Renegade 83 and American Zoetrope for USA Network.

Premiering Sunday, June 17 @ 9pm/8c
