'Collar' perfect fit for USA pickup
EmptyUSA Network has finalized a deal for a series pickup of "White Collar."
The project, from Fox TV Studios and creator/executive producer Jeff Eastin, has received an order for 13 episodes in addition to its 90-minute pilot.
"Collar" centers on the pairing of a con artist (Matthew Bomer) and the head of the FBI's white-collar crime unit (Tim DeKay).
Tiffani Thiessen and Willie Garson co-star on the series, which will be filmed on location in New York.
" 'White Collar' is the perfect complement in our hot summer lineup of character-driven originals," USA executive vp Jackie de Crinis said.
"Collar" could be a companion for "Psych," whose longtime lead-in, "Monk," is headed into its final season. (partialdiff)
