PRO FOOTBALL SUPERSTAR TERRELL OWENS RETURNS TO THE GRIDIRON FOR USA'S "Necessary Roughness"

Six-Times Pro Bowl Selection to Guest Star in Freshman Hit's Season Finale

Terrell Owens, one of the top pro football players in recent history and probably the most electrifying personality in the sport, will guest star in the season finale of USA Network's hit series Necessary Roughness on Wednesday, September 14 at 10/9c. 

Owens will be putting the pads back on for his role as All-Pro Safety/Cornerback Kevin "The Mine-field" Minnifield, star of the football team that the NY Hawks face in the play-offs and TK's (Mehcad Brooks) lifelong rival on the show.

Necessary Roughness has been a break-out hit in its first season averaging 5.8 million viewers a week.  The series centers around Dr. Dani Santino (Callie Thorne), a Long Island psychotherapist whose personal life unravels when she finds her husband cheating.  Diving fully into her work, she takes on the challenge of rehabbing a bad boy professional football player (Mehcad Brooks) whose off-the-field antics threaten his career and the team franchise. Underestimated at every turn, she succeeds beyond expectations and soon finds herself as the most sought-after therapist for high-profile clients.  Athletes, entertainers, politicians and others living in the spotlight clamor for her unique brand of tough love therapy during their moments of crisis. Although her career is reenergized, it wreaks havoc on her life as a newly minted single mom of two teenagers. Recognizing her ability to change people’s lives, she’s determined to strike a balance between both worlds.
