USA Network Exec Says PSYCH Characters May Return in Movie

Although the long-running cable-TV series "Psych" will come to an end March 26, that may not be the last that audiences see of fictional best friends Shawn Spencer and Burton "Gus" Guster, the president of usa network said Monday night.

Chris McCumber said the lead characters of the comedy, which was launched on the cable network in 2006, may appear in a movie or a special in the future.

The actors who play Shawn and Gus, James Roday and Dulé Hill, respectively, discussed the show at the Paley Center for Media in New York after McCumber's brief introduction.

Hill, who is performing in the musical "After Midnight," his third Broadway show, also appeared on the NBC show "The West Wing" from 1999 to 2006.

Roday, who graduated from New York University, where he studied theater, said "Psych" was his first major role. He has been cast in a new CBS pilot called "Good Session" and is promoting a movie "Gravy," which he wrote and directed.

McCumber, who previously was USA's marketing chief, said he laughed as soon as he read the three words on the title page of the first "Psych" script: "Fake Psychic Detective." The show, created by Steve Franks, "helped built usa network into what it is today."

Producer Andy Berman, who spoke via Skype, said the entire last season has been "really a love letter to 'Psych.' "

And he introduced the next episode, which Roday directed and co-wrote, called "A Nightmare on State Street," during which Gus undergoes dream therapy and sees zombies wherever he goes. "Psych" has become well-known for such genre spoofs, including one of the 1990 cult favorite TV series "Twin Peaks."
