Believe it or not, the summer TV season is almost here. We’re predicting networks are going to give us a million reasons to stay inside during what used to be a hiatus from all things on the small screen. And we’re totally okay with that.

USA Network has unloaded its summer schedule. Heating up our TV sets and monitors will be four returning series and two new shows. Here’s the breakdown:

Thursday July 17

The Show: Rush

USA Description: Rush examines the world of renegade physician Dr. William Rush (Tom Ellis, Miranda), 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 doesn¹t make judgments about his less-than-squeaky-clean clients, he¹s not immune to the ugliness that he encounters. From Fox21 (Homeland) and writer/director Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), along with Gina Matthews and Grant Scharbo (Missing, 13 Going on 30) and Executive Producer Adam Fierro (The Shield), the series is set to film in Vancouver, Canada.


The Show: Satisfaction

USA Description: A provocative drama that explores modern marriage at its midpoint.  Through the lens of one couple, Neil Truman (Matt Passmore, The Glades) and his wife, Grace  (Stephanie Szostak, The Devil Wears Prada), this series answers the question, ‘What do you do when having it all is not enough?’ by delving into their shocking and unconventional choices. Michelle DeShon (Hollywood Heights), Katherine LaNasa (The Campaign) and Blair Redford (Switched at Birth) also star. Satisfaction is from Universal Cable Productions (UCP) and executive producer/creator Sean Jablonski (Suits, Nip Tuck). Russ Krasnoff (Community) of Krasnoff/Foster also serves as executive producer. The series is set to film in Atlanta, Georgia.
