Because there can never be too many cop shows, USA network announced Wednesday its given a series order for “Common Law.”

The show centers on Travis Marks, played by Michael Ealy (“The Good Wife,” “Californication”), and Wes Mitchell, played by Warren Kole (“The Chicago Code,” “24”); they’re two cops who can’t stand each other. To salvage their professional relationship, the two attend couples therapy.


Production on 11 episodes of the buddy cop series begins next month in New Orleans.

The series joins USA’s growing slate of original series, which includes “Burn Notice,” “Covert Affairs,” “White Collar” and most recently ‘Suits” and “Necessary Roughness.”
