Yvonne Strahovski cast in Astronaut Wives Club

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to HitFix, Yvonne Strahovski (24: Live Another Day, Dexter) has been cast in the upcoming ABC drama Astronaut Wives Club, which will reunite her with Chuck co-creator Josh Schwartz.

The upcoming series is based on the best-selling book of the same name by Lily Koppel, and tells the story of the women behind Nasa’s early astronauts and how they dealt with becoming overnight celebrities just as their husbands prepared for space flight. Strahovski will play Rene Carpenter, the wife of Mercury astronaut Scott Carpenter. Carpenter is described as a woman with “modern attitudes [that] are a source of both conflict and courage for the other Astrowives. Over time, Rene finds her own voice and awakens to a higher calling in politics, civil rights and women’s issues.”

Strahovski joins a cast that includes JoAnna Garcia Swisher (The Internship, The Mindy Project) and Odette Annable (Cloverfield, Banshee).

30 September 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With the future of the "24" franchise — and her role as Jack Bauer's latest trusty sidekick — in limbo, Yvonne Strahovski has gone back to the past in more ways than one with her new gig, playing one of the title roles in ABC's "Astronaut Wives" club, written and executive produced by Stephanie Savage, and by "Chuck" co-creator Josh Schwartz. Based on the best-selling book by Lily Koppel, "Astronaut Wives Club" tells the story of the women behind Nasa's early astronauts, and how they deal with being catapulted into national celebrity overnight even as their husbands are preparing to be launched into orbit. Strahovski will play Rene Carpenter, wife of Mercury astronaut Scott Carpenter. The press notes suggest that "Her modern attitudes are source of both conflict and courage for the other Astrowives.  Over time, Rene finds her own voice and awakens to a higher calling in politics, civil rights and women’s issues. »

Rush: Would You Cancel or Keep the USA Series?

18 September 2014 7:09 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

There's been no shortage of TV shows about doctors who have lots of problems. Some are ratings hits while others are cancelled after only one season. How's Rush on USA Network been doing? Will it get a second season?

Rush revolves around a talented and handsome physician (Tom Ellis) who had it all -- but then lost it in one fateful night. Six years later, he's a private doctor who treats less-than-squeaky-clean clientele in Los Angeles. The rest of the cast includes Harry Hamlin, Larenz Tate, Odette Annable, and Sarah Habel.

Launching in mid-July, the first episode of Rush attracted 1.7 million viewers with a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic. It wasn't an impressive start for a scripted show on USA.

For the episodes that followed, the numbers have bounced all around -- up and down like a ping-pong ball. »

Fox's 'Red Band Society' admits Mandy Moore

12 September 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Mandy Moore is scrubbing in as what Fox is calling a "recurring guest star" on the freshman hospital dramedy "Red Band Society." The network announced this morning that Moore will play Dr. Erin Grace, chief of staff at Ocean Park Hospital, home to the pediatric wing caring for the show's main characters. Grace is also the ex-fiancee to Dave Annable's Dr. McAndrews, which may cause seconds of confusion for people who think that with dark hair, Mandy Moore has at least a superficial resemblance -- it's in the cheekbones, I think -- to Annable's real-life wife Odette Annable. "Red Band Society" premieres on Wednesday, September 17 at 9 p.m. on Fox.  You can check out my Take Me To The Pilots entry for a show that I think has a fair amount of potential. I also talked to co-stars Wilson Cruz and Rebecca Rittenhouse earlier this week and I'll be »

9 August 2014 1:01 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

USA has done very well with Royal Pains, a show about a private doctor who treats the wealthy. Now, the cable channel is trying a different twist with Rush. Will this series be a success and run for many seasons as well or, will it be cancelled after one short year? Stay tuned to find out.

Rush revolves around a talented and handsome physician (Tom Ellis) who had it all -- but then lost it in one fateful night. Six years later, he's a private doctor who treats less-than-squeaky-clean clientele in Los Angeles. The rest of the cast includes Harry Hamlin, Larenz Tate, Odette Annable, and Sarah Habel.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available. »

Video: 'Rush' star Tom Ellis shares his lovemaking soundtrack of choice

17 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Dr. William Rush is a private doctor with a penchant for self-medicating. His drug of choice? Eighties pop music. Oh yeah, lots of cocaine. Tom Ellis, the actor who plays the title character of USA’s new show Rush, shares a deep and abiding love for one of the doctor’s vices—fortunately, though, it’s not one that will land him in prison.

Ellis shared his fondness for shlock pop while taking EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test: “When I got the briefing from Jonathan Levine about Rush’s taste in music—and it was, of course, that he »

Tom Ellis Talks of Irresistible Rush Role, Being Once's Accidental Robin Hood

17 July 2014 6:50 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Good medicine can come from not-so-good people, USA Network’s Rush aims to illustrate starting this Thursday at 9/8c.

Tom Ellis (the UK’s Miranda) headlines the series as Dr. William Rush, a renegade physician who only treats the wealthy and elite, and only for (lots of) cold, hard cash. But make no mistake, this is no sun-baked Royal Pains redux; Rush the show, the man, has a gritty edge — a quality that pulled Ellis right in, for his first Stateside starring role.

Review: USA's 'Satisfaction' & 'Rush' & FX's 'Married' & 'Youre the Worst'

17 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Four new scripted shows debut tonight: two dramas on USA ("Rush" at 9, "Satisfaction" at 10), two comedies on FX ("Married" at 10, "You're the Worst" at 10:30). I loved none of them, but found enough interesting ideas, and enough overlap between several of them, to consider some kind of combined review. I could, for instance, have doubled up "Rush" and "Satisfaction" and mused for a bit about the state of the USA brand as it moves further away from the "blue skies" formula of "Burn Notice" and other shows, and how "Rush" feels like an attempt to do a darker version of one of those blue skies shows (it's "Royal Pains" meets "Ray Donovan"), while "Satisfaction" is a wild swing in a completely different direction. Or I could have written about the very different approaches that "Satisfaction" and "Married" take to the idea of marriages curdling from over-familiarity and a lack of sex. »

TV Review: USA’s ‘Rush,’ ‘Satisfaction’

16 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA premieres a pair of new shows this week — one squarely situated in its lighthearted wheelhouse, the other more intriguingly pushing toward new frontiers. The former is “Rush,” about a bad-boy doctor who administers to those living in L.A.’s fast lane, while the latter, “Satisfaction,” is a drama about midlife crises as seen through the prism of a strained, fracturing marriage. As such pairings go, this one is unusually metaphorical — highlighting a network that appears slightly torn between the temptation to expand and test its boundaries, and simply settling for prescribing the same familiar feel-good formula.

Granted, the doctor in “Rush,” William P. Rush (Tom Ellis), is a little more damaged than most. While “House” might have favored pain pills, Rush is introduced snorting cocaine and smoking pot, only revealing his profession when the woman he’s picked up has an overdose, and he has to speed her to the ER. »

Fox is giving up on its Saturday night animated line-up, Broadcasting & Cable reported. While the younger viewers the animated block aimed for never showed, an additional issue was that Fox affiliates were frustrated by the number of complaint calls the crude humor inspired. The studio behind the Animation Domination High Def block will continue to create programming but will focus on the web.

Bret Harrison has joined the cast of the ABC drama series Astronaut Wives Club, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He’ll play the “hotshot young gun” husband of a character played by Odette Annable, who previously starred in Breaking In with Harrison.

It’s been noted elsewhere but now it’s Comcast who is saying that giving viewers a chance to bingewatch a show can help it draw new viewers who will watch new episodes as they air.
