USA’s new original series RUSH stars Tom Ellis (“Miranda”) as renegade physician Dr. William P. Rush, a “medical fixer” who privately caters to the elite of Los Angeles for a hefty price tag… but he didn’t always practice this type of medicine.
A few short years ago, Rush was a top attending surgeon at a prominent LA hospital. Working alongside his father, Dr. Warren Rush (Harry Hamlin), and his best friend, Alex (Larenz Tate), Rush’s career was on a promising track. On top of that, he was in love with his beautiful colleague Sarah Peterson (Odette Annable). But one fateful night, his world came crashing down. His position at the hospital was terminated, his relationship with his father combusted, and Sarah left him. Through everything, Alex was the only one to stay by his side. Shortly after, Rush began a private doctor service, treating his less-than-squeaky-clean clientele with no judgment or attachment.
The series picks up six years later, Rush’s unorthodox business thriving with the help of his savvy assistant Eve (Sarah Habel). And with Sarah in Los Angeles once again, Rush tries everything in his charming bad boy arsenal to get her back. It’s challenging to pursue an ex while on a strict regimen of substance abuse and navigating the medical needs of actors, gangsters, life coaches, bounty hunters, musicians, and other troubled inhabitants of Los Angeles. When Alex risks his career to help Rush out of a bind, their friendship is put to the test. To set things right, Rush opens a door he wanted to keep shut; reaching out to a well-respected physician - his estranged father.
