According to The Hollywood Reporter, USA Network has found a companion for its hit dramedy Monk in Psych. The cable network has picked up Psych to series, ordering 11 episodes of the one-hour dramedy for a total of 13 hours, including the two-hour pilot.
Like Monk, Psych also features an unlikely detective. Produced by NBC Universal TV Studio, the series centers on Shawn Spencer (James Roday), an amateur sleuth who cons the police into believing he has psychic powers that help him solve crimes. With the reluctant assistance of his best friend (Dule Hill), he has no choice but to begin cracking complicated cases.
