The USA Network has announced it will be adding to its program roster an “aggressive” slew of shows built around “strong, relatable characters.” “Our goal is to continue introducing our audience to ordinary, everyday people who live under incredible circumstances,” said USA’s exec VP Jeff Wachtel. But one of those shows, currently being cooked up in the kitchens of World of Wonder, features anything but ordinary people. Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato are writing and producing Secrets of the Spa, a scripted late-night soap that exposes the deliciously dark doings behind the ultraglamorous facade of a desert spa that caters to the super rich. We’re thinking the series could be a kind of steamy cross between Ibsen’s Enemy of the People and a Massage-Out-the-Knots Landing. We can’t wait.
