USA Network is building on its 2006 original programming slate with an 11-episode order for the one-hour series “Psych
,” starring James Roday, Dule Hill
and Corbin Bernsen
. The series is about a man who solves crimes for the police force using his special abilities.
“Psych” centers on Shawn Spencer (Roday), who possesses uncanny powers of observation honed by his police officer father, Henry (Bernsen), who drilled young Shawn to note even the smallest details of his surroundings.
When Shawn is accused of committing a crime that he actually solved for the police department (by calling in a tip), he convinces the cops that he's a psychic, and with the reluctant assistance of his best-friend Gus (Hill), Shawn starts solving cases for an ever-skeptical but grudgingly impressed police force.
