The original Law & Order seems like such a distant, and classy, memory these days. Dick Wolf's mini-empire within NBC now runs on a higher octane of lurid overkill.

To call Psych creator and executive producer Steve Franks an optimist would be a bit of an understatement.
When asked when he first thought of doing a musical episode of the USA cult favorite, Franks readily admits that it was during production on the pilot — before the project had even been picked up to series.

The Psych musical is finally (almost) here.
USA announced Thursday that the long-awaited two-hour special, featuring all new original songs by series creator Steve Franks, will premiere on Sunday, Dec. 15. Featuring guest appearances by musical vets Anthony Rapp (Rent) and Barry Bostwick (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Psych: The Musical will find Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) singing and dancing their way through a murder mystery centered on a Z (Rapp), a playwright who is deemed criminally insane after killing a critic six years ago. When Z escapes, the team must track him down and turn to the one person he confided in — a familiar villain from Shawn's past.
