USA Network Announces Summer Schedule of New/Returning Drama Premieres -Updated

Share

*Updated USA Network has added two additional trailers for Satisfaction and Rush*

USA Network is premiering two ambitious new drama series, Rush (which seems similar to Royal Pains but is on the West Coast and has more illegal drugs) and Satisfaction (which takes a look into a couple’s marriage at the midpoint, asking the question, ‘What if having it all isn’t enough?’). I’ll be anxious to see how these shows fare against USA Network’s already heavy hitters like Royal Pains, Covert Affairs, Suits, and Graceland.

Complications: starring Jason O’Mara (“Vegas”) centers around John Ellis, 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 he learns the boy is still marked for death he finds himself compelled to save him at any cost and discovers that his life and his outlook on medicine may never be the same.  COMPLICATIONS is written and executive produced by Matt Nix (BURN NOTICE) and is from Fox Television Studios. 

 

 

ROYAL PAINS:  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.  The series also stars Paulo Costanzo (‘40 Days and 40 Nights’), Reshma Shetty (‘30 Rock’), Brooke D¹Orsay (‘Two and a Half Men’), and Ben Shenkman (BURN NOTICE).  From Universal Cable Productions, ROYAL PAINS is written and executive produced by Andrew Lenchewski (‘UC: Undercover’) and Michael Rauch (‘Life is Wild’).  Rich Frank (‘More’) also serves as executive producer along with Jeff Kwatinetz (‘Unstoppable’) and Paul Frank (‘Comanche Moon’) from Prospect Park, Connie Burge (‘Ally McBeal’), Carol Flint (‘The West Wing’), Jon Sherman (‘Frasier’) and Jack Bernstein (MONK).  ROYAL PAINS was one of summer¹s top five cable series Wednesday nights in 2013 among P25-54 (2.01MM) and total viewers P2+.

 

SUITS:  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, ‘Rosemary¹s 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”).  The series also stars Gina Torres (“Firefly’), Rick Hoffman (“Samantha Who”), Meghan Markle (“CSI: Miami”) and Sarah Rafferty (‘Brothers & Sisters’).  From Universal Cable Productions, SUITS was created and is executive produced by Aaron Korsh (“The Deep End”).  Doug Liman (COVERT AFFAIRS, ’The Bourne Trilogy’) and David Bartis (COVERT AFFAIRS) and Gene Klein (COVERT AFFAIRS) of Hypnotic, as well as Daniel Arkin (‘90210’) and Chris Downey (‘Leverage’) serve as executive producers.  SUITS was one of 2013¹s top ten scripted shows in cable among P18-49 (2.38MM), P25-54 (2.39MM), and P18-34 (1.28MM).  Fans can catch up before the new season with the DVD release of SUITS season three on May 27 or anytime on Amazon Prime.

 

GRACELAND:  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.  The series also stars Vanessa Ferlito (‘The Sopranos’), Manny Montana (‘Chicago Code’), Brandon Jay McLaren (‘Falling Skies’) and Serinda Swan (‘Breakout Kings’).  From Fox Television Studios, GRACELAND comes from creator and executive producer Jeff Eastin (WHITE COLLAR) and is inspired by true events.  The series was one of 2013¹s top new cable dramas of the summer, capturing a broad freshman audience, averaging 4M total viewers.

 

COVERT AFFAIRS:  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.  The series also stars Christopher Gorham (‘Ugly Betty’), Hill Harper (‘CSI: NY’), Kari Matchett (‘Invasion’), Peter Gallagher (‘The O.C.’) and Nic Bishop (‘Body of Proof’).  From Universal Cable Productions, COVERT AFFAIRS was created, written and executive produced by Matt Corman (‘Deck the Halls’) and Chris Ord (‘Deck the Halls’), and is executive produced by Doug Liman (SUITSThe Bourne Trilogy’) David Bartis (SUITS) and Gene Klein (SUITS) through Hypnotic.  Stephen Kay (‘Sons of Anarchy’), Sean Ryerson (‘Bait’), Stephen Hootstein (‘What About Brian’) and Henry Alonso Myers (‘Ugly Betty’) also serve as executive producers.  In 2013, COVERT AFFAIRS averaged 1.44MM P18-49, 1.68MM P25-54, and 4.05MM total viewers P2+.  Fans can catch up before the new season with the DVD release of COVERT AFFAIRS season four on May 27 or anytime on Amazon Prime.
