Rush was an original medical drama series which premiered on USA Network on July 17, 2014, at 9 p.m.[1][2]

On October 2, 2014, USA Network announced that Rush would not be renewed for a second season.[3]


The series is the story of a hard-partying Los Angeles doctor serving a very specific clientele, the kind with a lot of cash and a lot of secrets.[4]




This series comes from Fox 21 and is written and directed by Jonathan Levine, with Gina Matthews and Gretta Scharbo. Adam Fierro is executive producer. Rush was filmed in Vancouver British Columbia, Canada.[5]

The website consensus reads: "A competent but bland medical drama, Rush fails to add anything new to an overly familiar concept".[7]
