Good Morning.  It’s Tuesday, August 7, 2007, and this is your first early morning briefing.

USA Network has licensed eleven theatrical titles from Universal Pictures – the two biggest titles in the group being the recently released The Bourne Ultimatum and I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry.  The deal will cost USA in the neighborhood of $60 million for the 54-month term, and Universal Pictures retrains the rights to set up broadcast windows for both Bourne and Chuck & Larry, as well as a handful of runs to be sold to another cable network. The Bourne Ultimatum goes to USA in early 2010, and Chuck & Larry in late 2009.  The other titles in the sale are Breach, The Good Shepherd, Children of Men, Man of the Year, Ali G Indahouse (a Focus Features film), The Hitcher, Alpha Dog, The Interpreter and Smokin’ Aces.

Tonight’s Premieres:
Power of 10 at 8p
ABC: i-Caught at 10p
TLC: LA Ink at 10p

CBS has ordered up a new comedy pilot. Worst Week is based on the BBC series The Worst Week of My Life, where a young couple engaged to be married, but traverse the minefield of holiday with the soon-to-be in-laws.  If this sounds oddly familiar, Fox also shot a pilot based on the same BBC series a couple of years ago. The pilot is from Universal Media Studios and Hat Trick Prods., who also produces the UK series.

Also in development at CBS is a medical drama from Mark Gordon Co, reports Variety.  The untitled drama focuses on a psych neurologist and crisis manager, who handles all the job can throw at her with professional grace, but as you might have guessed, she has difficulty managing her personal crises.

FX has ordered up an untitled cop drama, from exec producers Peter Berg, Sheldon Turner and Sarah Aubrey, for Film 44.  The story focuses on two undercover cops – one a bit of a rogue cop, who have infiltrated the Russian mob, reports Variety.
