USA’s Summer Lineup Announced: ‘Graceland’ To Debut, ‘Suits’ To Return, And More!


USA is one of those networks that have just figured it out. It being filling a programming void (see: new programming in the summer, when most networks are in reruns or are airing third-tier reality shows) and giving their fans exactly what they want: well-executed procedurals, and lots of ’em. 

The cable network announced their summer 2013 schedule on Wednesday, and it’s pretty much business as usual — but that’s a good thing for them, and their incredibly devoted fan base. Favorites like Burn Notice (Season 7 will kick off on Thursday, June 6 at 9 PM ET), Royal Pains (back for Season 5 on Wednesday, June 12 at 9 PM ET), Necessary Roughness (getting a Season 3 on Wednesday, June 12 at 10 PM ET), Covert Affairs (back in action for Season 4 on Tuesday, July 16 at 9 PM ET), and — well-dressed hotties alert! — Suits (suiting up for Season 3 on Tuesday, July 16 at 10 PM ET).

In addition to their returning series, USA is also debuting Summer Camp, which is slated for a July premiere, and the Aaron Tveit vehicle Graceland, which will premiere on Tuesday, June 6 at 10 PM ET. got a sneak preview of the series premiere at SXSW in Austin last month and we can confirm that the show has all the makings of a beloved USA series: attractive crime fighters, snappy dialogue, glossy imagery, and did we mention attractive crime fighters? (Seriously, it’s Aaron Tveit and Daniel Sunjata).

When we caught up with Tveit after the show’s debut to an excited audience, the actor — who plays a rookie FBI agent who lives with a group of fellow agents on an amazing beachfront property (even more amazing, it’s based on true events) — and Les Mis star credited the network for his decision to jump back to the small screen from film and the stage. “When I found it was USA, I could instantly picture how they were gonna do it and it was going to look like and fully supported. They give their shows every opportunity to succeed,” he said.
