(Los Angeles, CA - Feb. 17, 2006) USA Network is building on its 2006 original programming slate with an 11-episode order for the one-hour series PSYCH, starring James Roday ("Dukes of Hazzard," "Miss Match"), Dule Hill ("The West Wing") and Corbin Bernsen ("Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang," "LA Law"). Series is executive produced by Steve Franks ("Big Daddy")
PSYCH, centers on Shawn Spencer (Roday), who possesses uncanny powers of observation honed by his police officer father, Henry (Bernsen), who drilled young Shawn to note even the smallest details of his surroundings. When Shawn is accused of committing a crime that he actually solved for the police department (by calling in a tip), he convinces the cops that he's a psychic, and with the reluctant assistance of his best-friend Gus (Hill), Shawn starts solving cases for an ever-skeptical - but grudgingly impressed - police force.
Hmm... USA already airs Monk and L&O CI at all hours of the day and night... so who will notice another super-attentive investigator?? Fakin' it as a Psychic will be the only original twist in this show. Plus we all know Corbin Bernsen kills TV series at the mere mention of his name. So I don't think this one will hang around for a long time.
