3. USA Network News. In its first Upfront presentation, USA Network announced a few shows in development and seems to be trolling for a show to pair with Modern Family 9which it will begin airing in syndication next year) which is similar to TBS’s plan to feature new shows matched with its The Big Bang Theory repeats. Deadline.com has the scoop here.
See the trailer for the USA Summer show, Political Animals, the channel’s most buzzy new shows in years.
