"This is the right time to be introducing half-hour original comedies to the USA audience. With 'Modern Family' joining our line-up in the fall, we can leverage television's most popular comedy to serve as a powerful launch pad for new originals in this genre," Chris McCumber, co-president of USA Network, said in a statement Thursday.

"Our new series come from some of the best comedic talent in the business, and reflect USA's style -- with great characters, strong execution and compelling storytelling," said Jeff Wachtel, the network's co-president.

Created by Denis Leary and Bob Fisher, "Sirens" follows "three of Chicago's best EMTs whose sometimes silly, self-righteous and even self-destructive personalities make them unqualified for sustaining relationships, friendships and most occupations. They are, however, uniquely qualified for saving anyone who winds up in their ambulance," a synopsis said. The show stars Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels, Jessica McNamee and Kevin Bigley.

"Playing House" is a single-camera buddy comedy about "what happens when two best friends come back together, just when they need each other most," a synopsis said. It co-stars Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair.
