USA Network Orders Hollywood Period Drama Pilot from ‘Suits’ Team

USA Network has ordered a pilot for “Paradise Pictures,” a period drama from “Suits” exec producer Aaron Korsh, the cabler announced Tuesday.

The pilot centers around ambitious people striving to get to the top in Hollywood in the ’40s, when the dream factory was at its peak. Little do they know the challenges they’re about to face, including the end of the studio monopolies, the blacklist and the new disruptive technology of television.

“Set against the backdrop of a dramatic transformation in the entertainment industry, ‘Paradise Pictures’ delves into a world that has not yet been explored on television,” said Alex Sepiol, senior VP of original series, USA Network. “We are pleased to continue our successful relationship with Aaron and Rick, as they use this dynamic time to tackle issues which are still very much a part of modern day Hollywood.”

The Universal Cable Productions project is penned by Rick Muirragui (“Suits”), who will also serve as an exec producer.

“Paradise Pictures” joins USA’s sniper pilot “Shooter,” based on the film that starred Mark Wahlberg, who will serve as an exec producer on the project. Also on USA’s pilot slate is thriller “Falling Water,” which is co-created and written by the late Henry Bromell and Blake Masters for Gale Anne Hurd’s (“The Walking Dead”) Valhalla Entertainment and Universal Cable Prods., and Fox 21 Television’s telenovela-inspired “Queen of the South.”
