From Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), Rush tells the story of renegade physician Dr. William Rush (Tom Ellis), who works as a medical fixer for the Los Angeles elite. Although he tries to keep his distance from the shenanigan his clients go through, he soon finds himself being consumed by the ugliness of the industry he’s chosen to make his living in. In addition to Ellis, the series stars Larenz Tate (Rescue Me) and Nicholas Gonzalez (Sleepy Hollow).
Created by Matt Nix (Burn Notice), Complications follows disillusioned suburban ER doctor John Ellis (Jason O’Mara) as his life gets transformed by a single incident he wasn’t prepared for. After intervening in a drive-by shooting and killing one of the attackers, he learns that the young boy he saved is still being targeted for death; though he vows to protect the boy at any cost, his views on life and medicine begin to shift almost immediately, possibly causing a fundamental shift in who he is as both a man and a doctor. In addition to O’Mara, Complications stars Beth Riesgraf (Leverage), Jessica Szohr (Gossip Girl), and Demetrius Grosse (Banshee).
Satisfaction finds married couple Neil (Matt Passmore) and Grace Truman (Stephanie Szotak) struggling with questions about their relationship and battling with the idea that having it all might not be enough to keep them together. In addition to Passmore and Szotak, Satisfaction stars Blair Redford (The Lying Game), Katherine LaNasa (Deception), and Michelle DeShon (Hollywood Heights).
While Complications doesn’t have a premiere date as of yet, Rush is set to premiere Thursday, July 17th at 9:00, with Satisfaction following at 10:00.
Which upcoming USA drama will you be watching? Do you think something like Satisfaction, which appears especially off-brand from the typical USA drama, can find an audience? Should USA have paired both new dramas with something established this summer?
