"Rush" (TV show) is a fast-paced Hollywood drama series on USA Network that stars Tom Ellis ("Miranda and Gates") as renegade physician Dr. William Rush. Not your average on-call doctor, Rush is highly discreet no matter what the ailment, as long as the client can pay his cash-only premium, and the doctor can party with the best of them. He has no desire to change his life or how he lives it, until an old flame and his conscience begin to stir things up.

When the city's wealthiest and most elite have a medical emergency, they don't call an ambulance — they call Rush. After an impulsive decision cost him his career as an ER doctor, Rush went freelance. Now, he lives out of a hotel suite and traverses Los Angeles in his mobile office (a vintage Mercedes), providing discreet private medical care. Though the hard-partying doctor with a penchant for popping pills claims that he doesn't make judgments about his less-than-squeaky-clean clients, he's not immune to the ugliness that he encounters. 

Rush's devoted assistant, Eve (Sarah Habel, "Whip It"), encourages him to clean up his act and does her best to keep him reined in daily. However, thanks to the arrival of a former flame, Sarah (Odette Annable, "Two and a Half Men"), there's a part of Rush that may even want to change, but — like the scratched CDs he still listens to in his car — Rush is a little worse for wear and may be a little stuck. Still, the bad-boy doctor has a fundamentally good heart. Maybe that's part of his problem.

USA Network's "Rush" is from writer, director and producer Jonathan Levine ("Warm Bodies," "The Wackness") along with Fox 21 and Little Engine's Gina Matthews and Grant Scharbo ("The Gates," "Missing"). Adam Fierro ("The Shield") is executive producer.
