NEW YORK -- The USA television network is looking for laughs, and will premiere its first original situation comedies next winter.

"Sirens" focuses on three emergency medical technicians from Chicago who are good at their jobs but with personal lives that leave something to be desired. Denis Leary, who starred in FX's "Rescue Me," wrote and produced the series, but is not on-screen. "Playing House" stars Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham as friends who draw closer when one has a baby.

The network said Thursday that both are set to debut around the same time USA begins airing reruns of ABC's "Modern Family."

USA also said it was starting to make a new drama set in post-World War II America involving Nazi spies.
