USA Network is shaking things up this summer with a schedule that features four returning series moving to new time slots, joined by two new shows, dramas series Rush and Satisfaction, paired together. This is a rare new drama series launch on USA where the newbies are not slotted behind established series. Rush and Satisfaction (formerly untitled Sean Jablonski) will premiere July 17, airing Thursdays at 9 PM and 10 PM, respectively. Rush, from writer-director Jonathan Levine and Fox 21, examines the world of renegade physician Dr. William Rush (Tom Ellis), a “medical fixer” who privately caters to LA’s elite. Satisfaction, from Universal Cable Prods, stars Matt Passmore and explores modern marriage at its midpoint. (watch the first trailer below).
The sixth season of Royal Pains will debut on June 10 at 9 PM. It moves from Wednesday to Tuesday. There it will be paired with CIA drama Covert Affairs, which will slide to 10 PM for Season 5, premiering June 24. Legal drama Suits returns for its fourth season on June 11 at 9 PM, moving from Tuesday to Wednesday, where it will lead into the second season of Graceland, from White Collar creator Jeff Eastin. Speaking of White Collar, USA is yet to schedule the series’ final six-episode installment. Here’s the network’s summer schedule:
