Exclusive: More USA Summer Premieres: "Burn Notice," "Suits" on Thursday, June 23; "Royal Pains," "Necessary Roughness" on Wednesday, June 29
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- New seasons of "Burn Notice" and "Royal Pains" and newcomers "Suits" (formerly "A Legal Mind") and "Necessary Roughness" are the latest additions to USA's summer lineup, sources tell us exclusively.

A network spokesperson couldn't confirm at press time* however it's understood they'll roll out as follows:

-- "Notice" returns for season five on Thursday, June 23 at 9:00/8:00c followed by "Suits" at 10:00/9:00c. The latter revolves around a brilliant but unmotivated college dropout (Patrick J. Adams) who's recruited by one of Manhattan's top corporate lawyers (Gabriel Macht). Aaron Korsh created the Universal Cable Productions-based hour, which also stars Gina Torres, Meghan Markle and Rick Hoffman. Hypnotic's Doug Liman and David Bartis also serve as executive producers.

-- "Pains" then shifts to Wednesday nights at 9:00/8:00c for its third season launch on June 29 followed by the Callie Thorne-led "Roughness" at 10:00/9:00c. Thorne plays a tough, sexy Long Island divorcee who gets a job as therapist for a professional football team in order to make ends meet and soon finds herself a sought-after therapist to high-profile clients. Marc Blucas, Mehcad Brooks and Scott Cohen co-star in the series, from Sony Pictures Television and Universal Cable Productions. Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro are the co-creators.

The quartet join the previously announced "White Collar" and "Covert Affairs" this summer, both of which return Tuesday, June 7. Still to be announced: a return date for "Psych," which traditionally kicks off its season in July or August.

Also on tap: "Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe" on Sunday, April 17 as well as new seasons of "In Plain Sight" and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" on Sunday, May 1.

* [UPDATED! 7:35 PM] Ted Linhart, VP of Program Research at USA Network, subsequently confirmed these dates via Twitter, adding that "Psych" will return in the fall.
