Is this the answer to, “What will I watch when Psych and White Collar are gone?”
USA Network on Friday announced the pick-up of two new drama series, Complications and Rush, in tandem with greenlighting the previously reported sixth, final and shortened season of White Collar.
From Burn Notice creator Matt Nix, Complications stars Irishman Jason O’Mara (Terra Nova, Life on Mars) as John Ellis, a disillusioned suburban ER doctor who finds his existence transformed when he intervenes in a drive-by shooting, saving a young boy’s life and killing one of his attackers. When Ellis learns the boy is still marked for death, he discovers that his own life – and his outlook on medicine – may never be the same.
Rush meanwhile stars Welsh actor Tom Ellis (Miranda, Gates) as Hollywood physician William Rush, who is described as “not your average on-call doctor.” Rush is highly discreet no matter what the ailment, as long as the client can pay his cash-only premium. The hard-partying, large-living doc has no desire to change his life or how he lives it, until an old flame and his conscience begin to stir things up.
Among its other new offerings, USA Network this summer will launch the Untitled Sean Jablonksi series starring Matt Passmore (The Glades), while late 2014 brings the premiere of the event series Dig, starring Jason Isaacs (Awake) and Anne Heche (Save Me), from creators Tim Kring (Heroes) and Gideon Raff (Homeland).
