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 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!
Rush looks like a cross between USA's Royal Pains and Showtime's Ray Donovan, with the added bonus of having 50/50 and Warm Bodies director Jonathan Levine behind it. The series stars Tom Ellis as Dr. William P. Rush, a "medical fixer" who caters to Los Angeles' elite. Rush costs a pretty penny, but he's willing to offer his private services without judgement, though he's not entirely immune to the ugliness he encounters.
And then there's Satisfaction, which comes from Sean Jablonski and centers on a couple living at the midpoint of their marriage. Check out the trailer for that one here.Satisfaction stars Matt Passmore as Neil Truman, husband to Grace (Stephanie Szostak). The series aims to answer the question "What do you do when having it all is not enough." It looks like the answer to that might involve a lot of drama.
In addition to introducing Rush and Satisfaction to viewers, USA is bringing their Hamptons-set series Royal Pains back for Season 6. Here's what they released about the returning show, which premieres June 10:
Season six promises to bring more fun and sun and a host of celebrity guest stars to the Hamptons. This season, Hank (Mark Feuerstein, “Good Morning, Miami”), will return from his world travels with Boris (Campbell Scott, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) to find that his HankMed family has moved on without him during his 9-month absence. No longer in the comfortable dynamics he left behind, Hank forges ahead to figure out how he fits into this new normal.
Also back on June 10 is Covert Affairs, which returns for Season 5:
Season five of the hit espionage series picks up with CIA operative Annie (Golden Globe®-nominated Piper Perabo, “Looper”) returning to the Agency after having faked her death to go deep undercover to find a traitor to the CIA. The new season will examine the price Annie will have to pay for this risky maneuver and the implications it will have on her relationships – both personally and professionally – as she attempts to re-emerge into the world she once knew.
Suits is back on June 11 for Season 4. The description references the rivalry that appears to be on the horizon for Mike and Harvey...
The critically acclaimed and award-nominated legal drama returns for its fourth season after a major shift in the dynamics at the firm. It's a new world order as Mike Ross (SAG Award nominee Patrick J Adams, “Rosemary’s Baby”) leaves Pearson Specter and heads to Wall Street as an investment banker, quickly finding himself at odds with his mentor Harvey (Gabriel Macht, "Love and Other Drugs").
And then there's Graceland, which returns for its sophomore run on June 11 as well:
The sophomore season of GRACELAND follows the high-stakes investigative lives of six undercover federal agents who live together in a government-seized Southern California beachfront house. These FBI, DEA and ICE agents, whose lies are their lives, struggle to maintain a sense of normalcy. This is especially challenging when the former FBI rookie, Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit, “Les Miserables”) returns to “Graceland” to run point on a dangerous mission against the cartel. Meanwhile, Briggs (Daniel Sunjata, "Rescue Me"), still concerned about the missing recording that implicates him in a murder, attempts to clean up his life and repair his relationships.
