USA Network has given the green light to Peacock Productions’ docusoap series Partners in Crime, while Studio Lambert’s All In has been picked up as a pilot and Raw TV’s The Cowboy Way moves into development.

Joining USA’s 2013 unscripted series The Moment and The Choir, Partners in Crime follows American criminal defense attorneys Mario Gallucci and Big Lou Gelormino. The duo take on infamous cases, and also happen to be best friends.

All In focuses on sharing the talents of Brandon Lang, a sports handicapper, as he gambles a suitcase of cash for an unsuspecting family. The pilot will be produced by Studio Lambert, with Brian Graden (South Park) and Lois Curren (The Osbournes, Punk’d) serving as executive producers.

Elsewhere, USA’s development slate now includes the docuseries The Cowboy Way, which follows a group of ranchers working on a Texas cattle ranch. As they face the worst single-year drought and wildfires, these ranchers fight to keep the “cowboy way” alive.

The network’s growing unscripted slate also includes the previously announced Bride or Best Man from Shed Media, which begins production next month on a pilot.

“Our approach to reality storytelling is to showcase a broad spectrum of life’s real characters,” said Heather Olander, senior VP of alternative programming. “By partnering with these reality heavyweights, whose distinct voices have influenced the genre, we are offering audiences a new reason to engage with USA.”
