Divide and Conquer” revolves around a family with four kids and harried parents who struggle to keep up with their needs. Ocko wrote the pilot script and is exec producing.

The order for “Divide” comes on the heels of USA picking up two original comedy series, “Sirens” and “Playing House,” and the pilot “Love is Dead” as part of its upfront presentation last week. USA is bulking up on comedy programming to complement the “Modern Family” reruns that will bow Sept. 24 on the cabler.

Ocko’s credits include a stint on USA’s “Fairly Legal” and well as NBC’s “The Office” and ABC’s “Pushing Daisies.”
