USA's NECESSARY ROUGHNESS to Return for Third Season

USA Network ordered a third season of its Golden Globe(R) nominated original drama series NECESSARY ROUGHNESS. The 10-episode pickup completes the renewal of the network's full summer slate of original drama series, joining previous new season orders for SUITS, BURN NOTICE, ROYAL PAINS, WHITE COLLAR and COVERT AFFAIRS. The announcement is from USA Network Co-Presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel.

NECESSARY ROUGHNESS, paired with ROYAL PAINS, averaged 5.3M viewers as the Wednesday night block this summer. The season two premiere of NECESSARY ROUGHNESS nabbed 4.6 million total viewers.

"NECESSARY ROUGHNESS is an important page in our network playbook," said Wachtel and McCumber. "With a standout team of actors and writers playing at the top of their game, the upcoming seasons promise to deliver high-impact and creative storytelling."

NECESSARY ROUGHNESS features Golden Globe(R) nominee Callie Thorne as she reprises her acclaimed role as Dr. Dani Santino, a Long Island psychotherapist and single mother who's plucked out of relative obscurity to become the sports-psychologist for the New York Hawks. Season two returns on January 23, 2013 at 10/9c with five powerful episodes leading to a dramatic finale. After running the risk of losing her entire practice, Dani attempts to pick up the pieces of her complicated life. Meanwhile, Hawks star player and ultimate bad boy TK (Mehcad Brooks) struggles with his sobriety but will stop at nothing to maintain his number-one position as wide receiver. And with the franchise's ownership in the balance, the team is challenged when a secret threatens to bring down the Hawks' entire season.

Season two of the series stars Callie Thorne, Marc Blucas, Scott Cohen, Hannah Marks, Patrick Johnson and Mehcad Brooks. Upcoming guest appearances include sports franchise owner and entrepreneur Mark Cuban, former NFL quarterback Joe Theismann, Will Chase ("Smash"), Peter MacNichol ("Grey's Anatomy"), Robbie Jones ("Hellcats"), Jeff Nordling ("Body of Proof") and Neil Hopkins ("Lost".)

NECESSARY ROUGHNESS is created and executive produced by Liz Kruger & Craig Shapiro ("Miami Medical," "The Challenge"). Jeffrey Lieber ("Lost," "Miami Medical") and Kevin Dowling ("Sons of Tucson") also serve as executive producers. Inspired by a true story, NECESSARY ROUGHNESS is a Sony Pictures Television and Universal Cable Productions co-production.
