USA is continuing to flesh out its slate of scripted programming with a dash of new content and a return of an old favorite. Today the network announced it has picked up “Rush” and “Complications.” “Rush” is written and produced by “Warm Bodies” writer/director Jonathan Levine, while “Complications” is from “Burn Notice” creator Matt Nix. “White Collar” will also be coming back for a sixth season for six new episodes.
USA has already picked up two new dramas, an untitled series from “Suits” producer Sean Jablonski and “Dig” starring Jason Isaacs and Anne Hache from creators Tim Kring (“Heroes”) and Gideon Raff (“Homeland”). “Dig” is set to air in late 2014, while the untitled Sean Jablonski series will air this summer.
“Rush” (working title), stars Tom Ellis (“Miranda and Gates”) and is a fast paced Hollywood drama centered around Dr. William Rush (Ellis), a physician who is highly discreet no matter what the ailment — as long as the client can pay his cash-only premium. He can also party with the best of them. He has no desire to change his life or how he lives it, until an old flame stirs up matters.
“Complications” (working title) centers around John Ellis, played by Jason O”Mara (“Vegas,” “Terra Nova”). Ellis is a disillusioned suburban ER doctor who finds his existence transformed when he intervenes in a drive-by shooting, saving a young boy's life and killing one of his attackers. When Ellis learns the boy is still marked for death, he finds himself compelled to save him and his life may never be the same.
“White Collar” returns with stars Matt Bomer (“Magic Mike”), Tim DeKay (“Tell Me You Love Me”), Tiffani Thiessen (“What About Brian”), Willie Garson (“Sex and the City”), Sharif Atkins (“ER”) and Marsha Thomason (“Lost”). The series centers on the unlikely partnership between charming con artist Neal Caffrey (Bomer) and straightforward FBI agent Peter Burke (DeKay), who partner to catch other elusive white collar criminals.
