USA Network Gives Series Order to Infidelity Drama

USA Network Gives Series Order Infidelity

USA will hit a record number of original series this year with a 10-episode order going to an untitled drama about a man who confronts his wife’s infidelity.

The series hails from Universal Cable Prods. and scribe Sean Jablonski, an alum of USA’s “Suits. The project stars Aussie actor Matt Passmore (“The Glades”) as a man who discovers his wife, played by Stephanie Szostak, has been seeing a male escort. When the husband accidentally gets ahold of the escort’s phone, he gains new insight into the reasons why women stray from their marriages.

Series is slated to bow in the summer. The network already has the limited series “Dig” on deck for this year along with at least two original comedies: “Sirens,” to bow next week, and “Playing House,” set to debut in April. Plus it has given a series order to a third comedy, “Benched,” that has not yet been scheduled.

USA Network prexy Chris McCumber called the Jablonski project “the next generation of sophisticated storytelling for USA…..Through a culturally resonant story of an imperfect marriage, the series takes a captivating look at real modern-day issues facing couples in today’s complicated world.”

Jablonski and Russ Krasnoff (“Community”) are exec producing.

Passmore previously starred in A&E Network’s detective drama “The Glades.”
