Trailers for USA’s new shows: Rush, Complications and Satisfaction

Last up of all the networks this week is USA, which has three new shows on its roster, most of which it’s already been promoting for a while now and are all set to air pretty soon anyway.

Still, for completeness’ sake, after the jump, you can look at trailers for Rush, with Miranda‘s Tom Ellis (yes, BBC1’s Miranda) as a private doctor who absolutely, definitely isn’t Hank from USA’s Royal Pains because the show’s set on the West Coast; Complications, which has Jason “I was the voice of Batman. Once” O’Mara starring as… a doctor called Ellis; and Satisfaction, which isn’t about doctors at all, but does explore Maslow’s hierarchy of needs instead, looking at exactly what is enough for happiness, if money ain’t it.

Unfortunately, if you’re not in the US, you won’t be able to watch the Complications trailer without ‘help’. Don’t blame me.

Rush (premieres July 17)
Tom Ellis is Dr. William Rush, a ‘medical fixer’ who privately caters to LA’s elite and whose service comes with a hefty price tag. Though the hard-partying doctor claims that he doesn’t make judgments about his less-than-squeaky-clean clients, he’s not immune to the ugliness that he encounters.From Fox 21 and writer/director Jonathan Levine, along with Gina Matthews, Grant Scharbo and executive producer Adam Fierro.

Jason O’Mara (Vegas, Terra Nova) plays John Ellis, a disillusioned suburban ER doctor. Ellis’ existence is transformed when he intervenes in a drive-by shooting, saving a young boy’s life and killing one of his attackers. Written and exec produced by Matt Nix (Burn Notice). 

Satisfaction (premieres July 17)
Billed as a provocative drama that explores modern marriage at its midpoint through the lens of one couple: Neil Truman (Matt Passmore from The Glades) and his wife, Grace (Stephanie Szostak). The series grapples with the question, “What do you do when having it all is not enough?” by delving into their shocking and unconventional choices. From Universal Cable Prods and executive producer/creator Sean Jablonski. Russ Krasnoff also executive produces.
