USA Gets Hitched to Common Law
Michael Ealy, Warren Kole
USA is doubling down on its winning formula: crime-solving with a side of bromance.
The network has picked up the CBS Television Studios cop drama Common Law, ordering 11 episodes, Variety reports. The drama stars Michael Ealy and Warren Kole as a pair of cops who have a big problem ... each other. Their captain (Jack McGee) sends them into couples therapy in an effort to return the duo to their professional glory days despite their hatred for one another.
