NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) – The USA Network has expanded its reality slate by ordering the new reality legal show “Partners in Crime” to series and the gaming show “All In” to pilot. It is also developing “The Cowboy Way,” about life on a cattle ranch.
“Partners in Crime” is expected to debut next year, along with previously announced scripted series “The Moment” and “The Choir.” Another show, “Bride or Best Man,” will begin production on a pilot next month.
“Our approach to reality storytelling is to showcase a broad spectrum of life’s real characters,” said Heather Olander, senior vice president of alternative programming. “By partnering with these reality heavyweights, whose distinct voices have influenced the genre, we are offering audiences a new reason to engage with USA.”
“Partners in Crime” is a docu-soap featuring colorful defense attorneys Mario Gallucci and his partner, Big Lou Gelormino. it is produced by Peacock Productions. “All In” follows handicapper Brandon Lang as he knocks on families’ doors with a suitcase full of money and invites them to place a series of bets. It is produced by Studio Lambert, with Brian Graden (“South Park”) and Lois Curren (“The Osbournes,” “Punk’d”) serving as executive producers.
“The Cowboy Way” follows men and women working a Texas ranch during a miserable drought. It is produced by Raw TV (“Gold Rush: Alaska“).
