USA Gives Series Order to Untitled Drama Starring 'The Glades' Alum Matt Passmore

Today, USA has given a series order to the untitled drama pilot from writer Sean Jablonski (Suits) and starring Matt Passmore (The Glades). The order is for 10 episodes, to premiere during summer 2014.

"This is a powerful new addition to our drama slate and marks the next generation of sophisticated storytelling for USA," said USA Network President Chris McCumber. "Through a culturally resonant story of an imperfect marriage, the series takes a captivating look at real modern day issues facing couples in today's complicated world."

A provocative series that explores a marriage that has grown stagnant, the drama follows investment banker Neil Truman (Passmore) through the accidental discovery of his wife's involvement with a male escort. When Neil gains possession of the escort's phone, he uncovers a unique perspective on his life and what motivates women to stray, as his wife Grace (Stephanie Szostak, Iron Man 3) contemplates whether her needs are being met and if her marriage is worth saving.

Blair Redford (Switched at Birth) and Katherine LaNasa (Deception) co-star on the series. Jablonski will executive produce for Universal Cable Productions, alongside Russ Krasnoff of Krasnoff/Foster Entertainment.

The series will begin production in Atlanta, Georgia later this spring.
