Rumours that the show would be commissioned began to circulate last month and USA has now confirmed the news, Deadline reports.
The network has ordered 11 episodes of the programme.
Common Law focuses on two homicide detectives, played by Michael Ealy and Warren Kole, who are sent to couple's counselling by their captain (Jack McGee).
USA Network's co-presidents Jeff Wachtel and Chris McCumber said: "When CBS Television Studios sent us the script of Common Law, we immediately fell in love with the writing, the characters and the premise... With Michael and Warren, we have two stars who bring out the best in each other."
Meanwhile, USA's vice-president of programme research Ted Linhart wrote on his Twitter page: "[It] has our look [and] feel but we haven't done a true buddy cop show."
USA also has a number of other projects in development, including a remake of the British comedy Sirens, a drama called Over/Under, con artist series Eden and legal comedy drama Wild Card.
