“USA Network is replenishing its pilot roster, picking up four buzzy dramas from producers including ‘Mr. Robot’ creator Sam Esmail, Denis Leary, Peter Berg, former HBO programming president Michael Lombardo and Tim Kring,” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.

The pilot orders include “Treadstone,” a prequel to the “Bourne” feature franchise, from Kring; Leary’s crime thriller “Erase”; Esmail’s pulpy mystery thriller “Briarpatch”; and Berg and Lombardo’s high school cheerleading project “Dare Me,” THR reports.

“The four pilots come after USA Network’s most recent crop yielded the untitled ‘Suits’ spinoff, while the last of that slate, ‘Olive Forever,’ was passed over,” THR notes. “‘Treadstone,’ ‘Erase,’ ‘Briarpatch’ and ‘Dare Me’ illustrate USA Network’s commitment to make waves in the crowded Peak TV landscape that is expected to top 500 scripted shows this year.”
