Dr. John Ellison has Complications, all right.

On USA Network’s new summer drama (airing Thursdays at 9/8c), Irish actor Jason O’Mara plays a surgeon who spends precious little time tending to actual patients, focused instead as he is on fending off a local gang that has charged him with keeping 11-year-old drive-by target Antoine safe and sound.

18 June 2015 7:55 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Jason O’Mara ran into Complications as the star of USA Network’s new Thursday-night drama. When compared to standard-issue medical dramas, is this fresh twist just what the doctor ordered?

Supernatural, Ep. 10.18 to 10.23 focuses on removing the Mark of Cain

21 May 2015 4:09 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Felicia Day

Supernatural, Season 10, Episodes 18 to 23

Created by Eric Kripke

Airs Wednesdays at 9 pm Et on The CW

As threats have come and gone over the course of Supernatural‘s tenth season, the one concern that has loomed over both brothers has been the Mark of Cain. Numerous attempts by Dean to avoid its influence have failed, and Cain’s death closed off the possibility of the only person with intimate knowledge of the Mark helping get it off. The past few episodes have seen Sam dive headfirst into trying to get the Mark off Dean, forming an alliance with Rowena and roping Charlie in to find an ancient spellbook. The latter brings a new enemy into the fold, as the Winchesters say goodbye to a key ally in a compelling finish to an uneven season.

Dean’s attack on the Styne family provides one possible explanation to a disturbing aspect of the season, »

The TV shows that lived on after their finales

13 April 2015 3:40 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Doctor Who to Buffy and Supernatural, we celebrate the TV finales that turned out not to be their show's final episodes after all...

Most shows are lucky if they get one finale. So many series are abruptly cancelled before they can make any preparations at all, it’s the lucky few that are given a chance to finish off their story arcs and say goodbye to their characters. And then there are the very few shows that, having managed this impressive feat, are unexpectedly renewed and find that their finale isn’t a finale after all. Here, we celebrate five episodes that would have been excellent series finales, but for the minor point that they aren’t, in fact, the series finale.

8 April 2015 12:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While it is currently enjoying the success of shows such as the long-running Suits, the second-season renewal Sirens, and the brand new Dig, USA Network has now announced its 2015/2015 development slate, and it contains nine new scripted dramas to get excited about.

Backed by big names – including Rob Reiner, Catherine Hardwicke, Len Wiseman, Barry Sonnenfeld and Charlize Theron – these fledgling projects indicate a major push forward in original programming for the channel, and a major shift into television for high profile filmmakers.

Paradise Pictures: From the team that delivered Suits (Aaron Korsh, Rick Muirragui), this period drama is set in 1940s Hollywood and follows the fortunes of those trying to make it to the top of the entertainment industry tree, against a backdrop of blacklists, the rise of television, and the fall of studio monopolies.

Supernatural and Revolution creator Eric Kripke is developing a new comic book series entitled Amped for Vertigo Comics, while simultaneously developing the same property as a TV series for the USA Network. The six-issue monthly comic book series will debut sometime this fall, following a neurotic family man named Josh Jaffe, who tries to get out of a rut by purchasing an online "smart pill" to increase his focus. Much to his surprise, the pill gives him super-human strength, as the show examines the highs and lows of transforming into a superhero. Here's what Vertigo executive editor Shelly Bond said in a statement

"Eric has such a clever, irreverent cadence which makes him a natural writer for the Vertigo line. Amped promises to be as addictive as its title substance."

Eric Kripke also offered the following statement.

Upfronts: USA Network Grabs ‘SmackDown,’ Loads Up on Scripted Development

7 April 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network is doubling down on WWE, bringing “SmackDown” over from Syfy next year as part of an effort to hike the volume of live programming on NBCUniversal’s flagship entertainment cabler.

The move of “SmackDown,” a slew of development projects, new programs featuring the Chrisley clan and summer scheduling announcements were unveiled Tuesday morning at USA Network’s press upfront gathering held at 30 Rock’s Rainbow Room.

USA Network president Chris McCumber made it clear in his presentation that the cabler is shifting the focus of its original programming to court a millennial audience. He noted that the generational shift of millennials now making up the largest component of the 18-49 audience is well under way. USA’s new shows are built around stories and characters that exhibit “bravery, optimism, self-reliance and hope” — all themes that resonate with millennials, per McCumber.
