USA Sets Summer Schedule, Including 'Graceland' Debut
USA Network has unveiled its summer schedule.
Burn Notice, heading into season seven (which will include the 100th episode), kicks off the cable network's summer slate June 6 at 9 p.m. (Series star Jeffrey Donovan revealed the premiere date Tuesday via Twitter.) Burn Notice will serve as a lead-in for White Collar creator Jeff Eastin's new drama Graceland, debuting at 10 p.m.
The Hamptons-set concierge medical drama Royal Pains opens season five June 12 at 9 p.m. before kicking off the second season of Necessary Roughness at 10 p.m.
Covert Affairs enters season four July 16 at 9 p.m., before leading into the third season of Suits at 10 p.m.
Returning drama White Collar returns for season five in the fall.
New competition series Summer Camp, from Big Brother producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan, will launch in July. The show sees 16 people at a lakeside retreat where they compete in games inspired by classic camp experiences before the remaining competitors face off in an Olympic-style event.
USA enters into the unscripted space later this month with The Moment, hosted by former NFL star Kurt Warner. That series debuts April 11. The Choir, based on the U.K. format, will launch in the fall.
The summer schedule as it stands now:
Tuesdays (beginning July 16)
9 p.m.: Covert Affairs
