USA Network has given a cast-contingent green light to the pilot COMMON LAW.

Common Law (working title) is a comedic take on the buddy cop genre, centers on Wes Mitchell and Travis Marks, two cops with a problem … each other. As partners, they were LAPD’s dream team. Now Wes, a methodical former lawyer with a passion for cars, gardening and his ex-wife, and Travis, a maverick ladies’ man who served time in juvie, can’t stand each other. To revive their flagging professional relationship, their Captain sends them to couples therapy. We soon learn that a successful relationship or partnership doesn’t mean you have to like the same things; you just have to hate the same things.

The series comes from CBS Television Studios and Junction Entertainment, and is executive produced and written by Cormac & Marianne Wibberley. (“National Treasure,” “National Treasure: Book of Secrets,” “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle”). Jon Turteltaub (“Harper’s Island,” “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” “Jericho,” “National Treasure,” “National Treasure: Book of Secrets”) will executive produce. Dan Shotz and Karim Zreik (“Harper’s Island,” “Jericho”) of Junction Entertainment will serve as co-executive producers.

Common Law is the latest series to join USA Network’s slate of recent greenlit pilots, which also includes NECESSARY ROUGHNESS and A LEGAL MIND.
