USA NETWORK RETURNS TO COMIC-CON(R) ON JULY 21 WITH CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED ORIGINAL SERIES “COVERT AFFAIRS” AND “PSYCH” PLUS “BURN NOTICE: THE FALL OF SAM AXE”
LOS ANGELES – July 7, 2011 – USA, which just celebrated its 20th consecutive quarterly win as the #1 entertainment cable network and is currently dominating summer’s television landscape with a record number of original hits, returns to Comic-Con(R) for the third year in a row with talent and creators from three of its critically acclaimed and top rated shows – COVERT AFFAIRS, PSYCH and BURN NOTICE. USA panels will take place as Comic-Con kicks off on Thursday, July 21, 2011.
Making its debut at Comic-Con(R) is the entire cast of COVERT AFFAIRS, with a panel moderated by guest star Oded Fehr. COVERT AFFAIRS, which returned in June for its sophomore season, stars Golden Globe(R)-nominated Piper Perabo as Annie Walker, a young CIA operative whose exceptional linguistic skills make her invaluable to the Agency in missions that span the globe. The panel will also include Christopher Gorham, who stars as a blind tech ops agent and Annie’s agency confidant; Sendhil Ramamurthy, second generation agency man, Jai Wilcox, who’s intentions with Annie remain unclear; Kari Matchett, who plays Joan Annie’s no-nonsense manager and wife to Aurthur Campbell, the Director of Clandestine Services, played by Peter Gallagher; and Anne Dudek, Annie’s reliable older sister who has no idea what she really does for a living. From Universal Cable Productions, COVERT AFFAIRS is executive produced by Doug Liman and David Bartis through Hypnotic, and created and executive produced by Matt Corman and Chris Ord, who will be in attendance, as well.
