Vincent D'Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe Reprise their Beloved Roles in LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT for its Tenth and Final Season

New In Plain Sight Showrunners Ed Decter and John Strauss

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - February 3, 2011 - USA Network, the #1 network in 2010 for an unprecedented five consecutive years running, is kicking off its spring lineup with two of its popular original series, LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT and IN PLAIN SIGHT. LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT returns for its final season with eight all new episodes and IN PLAIN SIGHT will air its fourth season with 13 episodes. Both will premiere on Sunday, May 1, at 9/8c and 10/9c, respectively.

The final season of LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT features the long-anticipated return of Detectives Goren (D'Onofrio) and Eames (Erbe) to the Major Case Squad. Terminated for insubordination a year ago, Detective Robert Goren has been reunited with his long-time partner Alex Eames at the behest of new Major Case Captain William Hannah, a friend of Goren's since Academy days. In addition to plunging into colorful, dangerous mysteries, Goren has mandatory sessions with brilliant police psychologist Robyn Widrow that will ultimately help him unravel his tortured past, and to chart a course in the right direction. Each week, viewers will be taken through sizzling, sexy episodes of murder and provocative themes, such as: a beautiful female banker whose sole client was the Catholic Church; an adventuresome rogue who may be the country's best cyber-warrior; a woman who was blackmailing a wealthy, tabloid-fodder "bad boy."

LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT had a strong ninth season, delivering 3.60 million total viewers to the series on Tuesdays in 2010. LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT is produced by Wolf Films and Universal Cable Productions. The series was created by Emmy Award-winning producer Dick Wolf, who also executive produces, and was developed by Ren´┐Ż Balcer. Shot entirely in and around New York City, the third installment of the "Law & Order" franchise takes viewers deep into the minds of its criminals while following the intense psychological approaches the Major Case Squad uses to solve its crimes.

IN PLAIN SIGHT stars Mary McCormack as Mary Shannon, a U.S. Marshal working in the highly secretive branch of the witness protection program (WITSEC), who relocates Federal Witnesses, most of whom fall into three categories: career criminals, whistle-blowers or innocents who had the misfortune of witnessing a crime. They all have one thing in common - someone wants them dead. Mary's job is to see that doesn't happen, while at the same time attempting to manage her own dysfunctional family. IN PLAIN SIGHT also stars Frederick Weller, Nichole Hiltz and Paul Ben-Victor. Guest stars for season four include Josh Malina, Bradley Whitford, Rachel Boston, John de Lancie and Ali Marsh, among others. In the upcoming season, Marshall (Weller) will have a new love interest (Boston); Brandi (Hiltz) gets engaged to Peter (Malina), and Mary reluctantly helps plan the wedding.

IN PLAIN SIGHT debuted as the #1 new series on cable in 2008 and was the #1 cable drama Wednesdays in 2010. IN PLAIN SIGHT is produced by Universal Cable Productions and is filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Executive producers for season four are Ed Decter and John Strauss.

USA is the home to ten original scripted series: BURN NOTICE, ROYAL PAINS, WHITE COLLAR, PSYCH, IN PLAIN SIGHT, LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT and COVERT AFFAIRS and the newest hit, FAIRLY LEGAL. A LEGAL MIND and NECESSARY ROUGHNESS will be the next originals to join the roster this summer, bringing USA's programming slate to a record number of scripted original series in 2011.
