A doctor with the same last name as the disgraced deejay who popularized rock ‘n’ roll, and a gaggle of baddies from The Odyssey. Cool.
USA Finalizes Pilot Orders For Comedies ‘Paging Dr. Freed’ & ‘Sirens’
by Nellie Andreeva
It took almost a year, but USA Network has closed a deal for a pilot order to single-camera comedy Paging Dr. Freed. The network has finalized the pilot pickups for both Paging Dr. Freed and the Denis Leary-produced single-camera comedy Sirens. The move is significant as it creates a deal template for half-hour series on USA, which is returning to the comedy business after more a decade.Paging Dr. Freed is from 20th TV’s Fox21, while Sirens is produced by Fox TV Studios, which also operates under the 20th TV umbrella.
