The first of which, Rush, premieres Thursday, July 17 9/8C.

“Rush examines the world of renegade physician Dr. William P. Rush (Tom Ellis, Miranda), a “medical fixer” who privately caters to LA’s elite and whose service comes with a hefty price tag. Though the hard-partying doctor claims that he doesn’t make judgments about his less-than-squeaky-clean clients, he’s not immune to the ugliness that he encounters.”

The show comes from Fox21 (Homeland) and executive producer Adam Fierro (The Shield), with work from writer/director Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), along with Gina Matthews and Grant Scharbo (Missing, 13 Going on 30). The series is set to film in Vancouver, Canada, and you can check out the extended trailer below:

Rush leads into Satisfaction, which also premieres Thursday, July 17, but at 10/9C.

“A provocative drama that explores modern marriage at its midpoint. Through the lens of one couple, Neil Truman (Matt Passmore, The Glades) and his wife, Grace (Stephanie Szostak, The Devil Wears Prada), this series answers the question, “What do you do when having it all is not enough?” by delving into their shocking and unconventional choices. Michelle DeShon (Hollywood Heights), Katherine LaNasa (The Campaign) and Blair Redford (Switched at Birth) also star.”

The drama stems from Universal Cable Productions (UCP) and executive producer/creator Sean Jablonski (Suits, Nip/Tuck). Russ Krasnoff (Community) of Krasnoff/Foster also serves as executive producer. The series is set to film in Atlanta, Georgia. Make sure to check out the trailer below:


The third show is Complications, which has no premiere date as of yet.

“In Complications, Jason O’Mara (Vegas and Terra Nova) plays John Ellis, a disillusioned suburban ER doctor. Ellis’ existence is transformed when he intervenes in a drive-by shooting, saving a young boy’s life and killing one of his attackers.”

This show comes from Fox TV Studios, and is written and executive produced by Matt Nix.

See the trailer here.

Tom Ellis stands out to me as the perfect leading man as Dr. Rush, whereas the storyline for Complications looks exciting!

It appears USA are looking to expand on original dramas following the success they’ve had with Matt Bomer’s White CollarPsychSuits, and the freshman season of Aaron Tveit’s Graceland last summer.
