USA Network Picks Up Pair of Sitcoms

by at . Comments

USA is getting its funny back on.

The network, whose Upfront Presentation takes place in New York City this afternoon, has announced a pair of series orders, both of which will air in early 2014:

  1. Sirens - Single-camera sitcom that follows a trio of Chicago EMTs and their unique personalities. Will star Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels, Jessica McNamee and Kevin Bigley. Written by Denis Leary and Bob Fisher.
  2. Playing House - Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham star as best friend, the latter of whom is expecting a baby and the former who is returning home from a job overseas.

In announcing the move, USA’s Co-President Chris McCumber talked up the network's acquisition of Modern Family and its September 24 debut as a perfect launching pad for the new programs.

“With Modern Family joining our lineup in the fall, we can leverage television’s most popular comedy to serve as a powerful launch pad for new originals in this genre,” said McCumber. “Our new series come from some of the best comedic talent in the business, and reflect USA’s style – with great characters, strong execution and compelling storytelling.”
