USA Network has picked up Fox 21’s “Rush,” written and produced by Jonathan Levine, and Fox Television Studios’ “Complications,” from “Burn Notice” creator and executive producer Matt Nix. It also renewed “White Collar” for a sixth, six-episode season.
“We are excited to usher in the next generation of USA dramas, alongside our signature returning originals that continue to attract a large and loyal fan base,” said Chris McCumber, president of USA Network. “This year USA will be showcasing more hours of original programming than ever before, including an unprecedented 6 new series and 6 returning shows.”
Despite reports that this will be the final season of “White Collar,” no decision has been reached on whether the show (starring Matt Bomer, pictured) will go on.
“Rush,” a working title, stars Tom Ellis (“Miranda and Gates”) and is from writer/director Levine (“Warm Bodies,” “The Wackness”) along with Fox 21 and Little Engine’s Gina Matthews and Grant Scharbo (“The Gates,” “Missing”). The Hollywood drama is centered on Dr. William Rush (Ellis), a pricey, discreet, hard-partying doctor who starts to rethink his life because of an old flame.
“Complication,” another medical drama, is focused on John Ellis (“Terra Nova” star Jason O’Mara, a disillusioned suburban ER doctor whose life changes when he intervenes in a drive-by shooting.
“White Collar” is created and executive produced by Jeff Eastin and comes from Fox Television Studios. Nick Thiel and Jeff King also serve as executive producers.
