USA Network has ordered a new political drama for a summer launch.

Created by Greg Berlanti, Political Animals follows the life of a divorced former First Lady-turned-Secretary of State named Elaine Barrish, writes The Hollywood Reporter.

In the midst of her family and career troubles, she befriends a journalist who hasn't been too kind on Elaine.

USA has ordered six hours of the drama series and plans to debut the show this summer.

Green Lantern writer Berlanti is to pen and direct the Political Animals pilot. He will also serve as an executive director along with Laurence Mark and Melissa Kellner Berman.

Earlier this month, it was reported that Berlanti will write and executive produce the television adaptation of comic book character Green Arrow on CW.

Berlanti was once rumoured to be the top choice to direct Warners Bros' superhero film The Flash.
