When baseball pros with anger issues, actors with — ahem — personal problems, or bullet-riddled gangsters need a discreet doctor, who do they call? If you’ve got cash, then Dr. Will Rush (Tom Ellis) has no prejudice. Rush, USA Network’s new high-octane drama, premieres boasts an antihero lead with as much to hide as his famous, and infamous, clientele. Rush has all of the trappings of a slick medical drama; its protagonist’s swanky hotel room features a portable defibrillator machine, his car’s trunk has a portable surgery suite, and he is in possession of and uses every drug known to … Continue reading →

Rescue Me alum Larenz Tate has been upped to series regular on USA’s original medical drama series Rush, set to premiere July 17. From writer-director Jonathan Levine and Fox 21, Rush follows Dr. William Rush (Tom Ellis), a “medical fixer” who privately caters to La’s elite. Tate plays Dr. Alex Thomas, Rush’s best friend dating back to medical school and one of the few constants in his life. Unlike Rush, Alex is a man with a plan — he works as a high-ranking physician at one of Los Angeles’ top hospitals and appears to have the ideal family life that Rush has long resisted. Tate played the role in the pilot as a guest star as he was in second position to comedy pilot Mr. Robinson at USA sibling NBC. Mr. Robinson has since been picked up to series but Tate won’t continue on the series, instead taking on full-time duties on Rush. »

USA is having a busy 2014. In addition to renewing "White Collar" for Season 6, the cable network has picked up two new dramas, "Rush" from Jonathan Levine ("Warm Bodies") and "Complications" from "Burn Notice" creator Matt Nix.
For those keeping count, this makes six returning series plus six new series on USA this year.
Although USA has not officially addressed rumors of a "White Collar" cancellation, the show's shortened sixth season will consist of only six episodes. The potentially final episodes will pick up after the cliffhanger ending of Season 5.
The first of the new dramas is "Rush." It stars Tom Ellis as Dr. William Rush. On-call for anyone, anytime, for any reason -- as long as that person can pay a high, cash-only price -- Dr. Rush is a hard-partying guy. He only considers changing his ways when an old flame and a pesky conscience come into the picture.
Do you like "Royal Pains?" USA Network is hoping your answer is an enthusiastic "yes," because it's adding two similar titles -- at least in premise -- to its youth-infused upcoming lineup. The network also renewed "White Collar" for a final, brief season of six episodes. The first of the two new medical dramas is from writer and producer Jonathan Levine ("Warm Bodies," "50/50"). "Rush" focuses on Dr. William Rush (of course), played by Tom Ellis -- an on-call doctor to the stars living a fast-paced life in Hollywood. Anyone hoping this was a spin-off of Ron Howard's 2013 racing film of the same name is sadly out of luck, though Dr. Rush could be seeing a Chris Hemsworth type if he's stricken with, I don't know, a tough bout of handsomeness. The second series comes from a familiar face. Creator and executive producer Matt Nix spent seven season on USA's hit series "Burn Notice, »
