USA recently ordered a pilot for a series based on the book “Masters of Doom.” The cabler’s other upcoming scripted fare includes “Briarpatch,” with the first season set to star Rosario Dawson and Kim Dickens, a series adaptation of “Brave New World,” and “Treadstone,” a drama set in the “Bourne” universe.
