USA Network Expands Reality Slate With Law Series, Gambling Pilot
The network has ordered to series Partners in Crime, a “docu-soap” that follows criminal defense attorneys Mario Gallucci and Big Lou Gelormino. The series, which will chronicle the law partners’ big cases and dramatic family lives, is scheduled to debut in 2013.
In addition, the cabler has greenlit a pilot for All In, a reality show that centers on unbelievably lucky handicapper Brandon Lang as he helps an unsuspecting family try to win massive amounts of money through high-stakes gambling.
The network also is developing an unscripted project tentatively titled The Cowboy Way, which chronicles the lives of workers on a struggling Texas cattle ranch.
Partners in Crime joins The Moment (which gives average joes a second chance at their dream careers) and The Choir (in which a choirmaster unites groups of people through song), both ordered to series earlier this year. Production on the cabler’s previously announced Bride or Best Man pilot (which puts a groom and best man in charge of a couple’s wedding) is scheduled to begin in November.Follow @kimroots
