Psych is a comedy drama series starring James Roday as young police consultant Shawn Spencer who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute that Santa Barbara PD detectives think he’s psychic.

Psych also stars Dulé Hill as Shawn's best friend and reluctant sidekick, Gus, and Corbin Bernsen as his disapproving father, Henry, who ironically was the one who honed his son's "observation" skills as a child.

Raised in Santa Barbara by a family of cops, Shawn possesses uncanny powers of observation honed by Henry, who drilled young Shawn to note even the smallest of details from his surroundings as a way of grooming him for his inevitable career in the family business.

Unfortunately, when a rift develops between father and son, Shawn finds himself taking a series of random jobs instead of becoming the detective he was groomed to be.

However, for the fun of it, Shawn makes a habit of calling in tips to the police about cases he reads about or sees on television, and when one of his tips appears too close to the truth, the police are convinced that Shawn is an accomplice and arrest him.

Using his charm and well-tuned talent, Shawn convinces the cops that he's actually a psychic, and although highly skeptical of his explanation, they hire him to help solve tough cases.

With the reluctant assistance of his best friend Gus, Shawn uses his skills of observation and charismatic personality to become the detective he was trained to be, opening his own PI agency - Psych - and solving cases for an ever-suspicious, but grudgingly impressed, police force.

Andy Barker PI
Premiere date: Thursday, 5 February 2009 at 21h30
Number of episodes: 6


A six-art comedy about Andy Barker (played by Andy Richter) - a happy and successful CPA who decides to take a risk and open his own accounting business.

He moves into an office formerly owned by a private investigator. Unfortunately for Andy, his life-long lucky streak comes to a sudden end when his business goes down the tube. Just when he thinks he's lost it all, a case of mistaken identity transforms Andy into a private detective - with a formidable talent for math.

His number-crunching skills help him to become a great P.I., but his two careers continue to intersect in hilarious and unnerving ways. Andy will try to solve cases using his accounting knowledge.

The cast also includes Paget Brewster as Jessica, Jonathan Slavin as Byron, Irene Molloy as Wendy and James Patrick Stuart as Keith.
