Rush, which debuts on July 17, examines the world of renegade physician Dr William P Rush (Tom Ellis), 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.

It comes from Fox21 and writer/director Jonathan Levine, along with Gina Matthews and Grant Scharbo and executive producer Adam Fierro.

Satisfaction, also starting on July 17, is described as a provocative drama that explores modern marriage at its midpoint.  Through the lens of one couple, Neil Truman (Matt Passmore) and his wife, Grace (Stephanie Szostak), 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, Katherine LaNasa and Blair Redford also star.

The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions and comes from executive producer/creator Sean Jablonski. Russ Krasnoff of Krasnoff/Foster Entertainment is also an executive producer.
