USA Greenlights Two New Medical-Themed Dramas

USA Network has picked up a pair of new drama series and renewed White Collar for a sixth season, the network announced Friday.

The “Characters Welcome” network has greenlit a 10-episode development deal for Rush, produced by Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies) which revolves around the fast-paced life of Dr. William Rush, played by Tom Ellis (Miranda and Gates). USA will also air Complications, a 10-episode series from Matt Nix (Burn Notice) that stars Jason O’Mara  (Vegas, Terra Nova) as an ER doctor whose life changes when he intervenes in a drive-by shooting.

The shows will join recently renewed series White Collar (pictured), which will return for a six-episode sixth season, as well as previously announced new dramas Dig and the Untitled Sean Jablonksi series.
