Cabler also 'All In' with pilot for upcoming reality push
Looking to advance on its 2013 reality push, USA Network has given a series order to “Partners in Crime” and ordered “All In” to pilot.“Partners in Crime,” from Peacock Prods., focuses on criminal attorneys Mario Gallucci and partner Big Lou Gelormino. The pair often handle high-profile cases and remain good friends outside the courtroom. “All In” asks handicapper Brandon Lang to put his gambling skills to the test, with a family having the opportunity to earn cash if Lang’s hunches come through. Show is produced by Studio Lambert and exec produced by Brian Graden and Lois Curren. Put into development by the NBCUniversal cabler is Raw TV-produced “The Cowboy Way,” about the folks who work on a Texas cattle ranch. Challenge for the ranchers is to keep longstanding customs and traditions alive while the nation’s economy make the job more difficult. USA Network is set to debut reality series “The Moment” and “The Choir” next year, though no date is set for either. Net, which has enjoyed a healthy dramedy business for years, wants to become more diversified going forward. It is ramping up both its original and syndie comedy output — “Modern Family” will debut in 2013 — and has high hopes for its reality fare as well.
