The series will debut with two back-to-back episodes before scaling back to just one episode the following week, followed by repeats of "Modern Family."
"Sirens" follows the antics of three Chicago EMTS, described as "a group of unruly men when it comes to their personal lives [who] are the best in the business professionally and can handle any life-threatening situation that winds up in their ambulance." The series stars Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels and Kevin Bigley. The first season consists of 10 episodes.
In the final six episodes of "Suits" Season 3, Harvey and Jessica must start contemplating the future of the firm following an emotional murder trial, while the truth about Mike may come out when Louis threatens to expose everything right out in the open. Guest stars will include Zeljiko Ivanek, Jamey Sheridan, Damon Gupton, Patrick Fischler, star Gabriel Macht's father, Stephen Macht and Michaels Phelps, playing a fictional version of himself.
“As a top cable drama, 'Suits' has a huge following of young viewers making a perfect segue to Denis Leary and Bob Fisher’s brand of comedy,” said USA's EVP Jackie de Crinis in a statement explaining the decision to choose a drama series as a lead-in for the new comedy. “Both series feature sharp, witty banter from an ensemble of great characters.”
