The Summer TV season is upon us. With new shows like Extant, Rush and Tyrant -- among others -- joining the lineup, and returning series like True Blood, Doctor Who, Under the Dome, Defiance and Graceland lined up, TV has plenty to offer us this summer.
Dr. William Rush is among the newest characters arriving at USA this summer. Tom Ellis plays the title role in Jonathan Levine's drama about a "medical fixer" who takes care of the medical needs of Los Angeles' elite. Of course, Rush's services don't come cheap, but no one said quality and discretion does. The new trailer shows Ellis ushering an inebriated woman toward the emergency room, and later preparing to assist a man who broke his something.
Summer's a big season for USA and this one is no exception. In addition to scheduling the return dates for Royal Pains, Suits and Graceland, the cable network has released two trailers and premiere dates for their newest hour-longs, Rush and Satisfaction, both of which are slated to debut Thursday, July 17. Watch the trailer for Rush above!
When it comes to any TV series, casting is crucial, but that seems even more relevant when it comes to USA series, as their emphasis on characters relies partially on great writing and partially on the right lead characters. In the case of the USA pilot Rush, the “great writing” checkbox has already been checked with Jonathan Levine on board to write and direct the project. And now it seems they’ve found their lead in Wales-born actor Tom Ellis.
