Tradecraft: USA Sticks With Spies
Spies have done well for USA, fueling hit series like Burn Notice and Covert Affairs. It's natural, then, that the cable network keep trying with a genre that works for it. And as long as their attempts maintain the quality of those two shows, I'll keep watching! Deadline reports that USA has bought a project from Working Title Television called The Outside Man, which the trade blog describes as a "light one-hour drama that follows a former black ops specialist who gets divorced and is forced to go back to spycraft in order to support his children and the two households." Matt Johnson (Torque, Into the Blue) and John Turman (Hulk, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer) will write and executive produce the series based on their own original idea.
