LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – USA Network announced its slate of upcoming projects Thursday, including a comedy project from Kelsey Grammer and a drama from Dick Wolf that the network is developing.

Grammer, who’s currently starring in the Starz drama series “Boss,” will executive-produce “The DiCicco Brothers,” about a dot-com entrepreneur whose brash style clashes with the politically correct environment of Silicon Valley. The story comes from Chirs Cannistraci and Ed Cannistraci, while the latter wrote the teleplay. The Universal Cable Productions project will also be executive-produced by Brian Sher and Stella Stolper, with Grammnet Productions.

The untitled project from “Law & Order” producer Wolf, meanwhile, will focus on an insurance investigator who gets divorced and marries a woman who turns out to be a man. Wolf’s “Law & Order” partner Peter Jankowski and Wolf Films’ Danielle Gelber are also working on the project, which is being produced by Wolf Films for Universal Cable Productions.

USA also picked up the pilot for the reality offering “Bride or Best Man,” described as a “bromantic comedy,” and is developing the Mark Burnett reality project “Romancing the Globe.”
