USA NETWORK PARTNERS WITH CBS TELEVISION STUDIOS FOR GREEN LIGHT TO "COMMON LAW"

"COMMON LAW" JOINS RECENTLY UPPED PILOTS "NECESSARY ROUGHNESS" AND "A LEGAL MIND"

LOS ANGELES, CA - June 9, 2010 - USA Network has given a cast-contingent green light to the pilot COMMON LAW, it was announced today by Jeff Wachtel, executive vice president, USA original programming & co-head, original content, Universal Cable Productions.

COMMON LAW (working title) is from CBS Television Studios and Junction Entertainment, and is executive produced and written by Cormac & Marianne Wibberley. ("National Treasure," "National Treasure: Book of Secrets," "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle"). Jon Turteltaub ("Harper's Island," "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," "Jericho," "National Treasure," "National Treasure: Book of Secrets") will executive produce. Dan Shotz and Karim Zreik ("Harper's Island," "Jericho") of Junction Entertainment will serve as co-executive producers.

"If you're going to do a cop show, it better be something special - and we believe this one is," said Wachtel. "It's funny, it's fresh, and the writing is just fantastic. We're thrilled to be working with the Wibberleys and Jon."

COMMON LAW, a comedic take on the buddy cop genre, centers on Wes Mitchell and Travis Marks, two cops with a problem ... each other. As partners, they were LAPD's dream team. Now Wes, a methodical former lawyer with a passion for cars, gardening and his ex-wife, and Travis, a maverick ladies' man who served time in juvie, can't stand each other. To revive their flagging professional relationship, their Captain sends them to couples therapy. We soon learn that a successful relationship or partnership doesn't mean you have to like the same things; you just have to hate the same things.

COMMON LAW joins USA Network's slate of recent greenlit pilots including NECESSARY ROUGHNESS and A LEGAL MIND.
