Hacker drama Mr. Robot (above), fresh from winning the SXSW Audience Award, will premiere on Wednesday, June 24th (10/9C).
Complications, a new fast-paced thriller about a doctor who – even as he mourns his daughter’s life – saves a young boy’ life, will make its two-hour debut on Thursday, June 18 (9/8C).
Returning shows include: the legal drama Suits’ fifth season (June 24th), season three of Chrisley Knows Best (June 2nd), season seven of Royal Pains (June 2nd), WWE Tough Enough (new format, June 23rd), season three of Graceland June 25th) and season two of Playing House (August 4th).
USA Network has announced its Summer 2014 Schedule – a mix of four well-regard returnees – Covert Affairs, Graceland, Royal Pains, Suits – and two new dramas – Rush and Satisfaction. Rush centers on a hard-partying bad boy physician who caters to L.A.’s elite – for a hefty price; Satisfaction explores modern marriage at its midpoint and stars Matt Passmore, fresh off The Glades.
Royal Pains stands as the network’s longest running current series, going into its sixth season; Covert Affairs enters season five; Suits will be in its fourth season and Graceland is a sophomore. The USA Network summer schedule kicks off with Royal Pains on June 10th; Rush and Satisfaction premiere on Thursday, July 17th. For the complete schedule of premieres – and series descriptions – check out the press release after the jump.
Graceland (USA Network, Thursdays, 10/9C) comes from the creator of White Collar, Jeff Eastin, and is based on a real situation in which agents of the FBI, DEA and US Customs shared a beach house that became government property because it was gained through funds made by criminal means. The series follows rookie FBI agent Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit, Gossip Girl, Les Miserables) as he gets plugged into this unusual setting with an unusually odd assortment of representatives of the three agencies – each (including him) with their own secrets.
Season four of White Collar (USA Network, Summer Finale Tonight, 9/8C) has found Neal trying to learn about his father, and working with a mysterious man named Sam. This evening’s episode brings things to a boil, metaphorically, with the show’s quietest, yet most emotionally explosive cliffhanger yet
Series creator Jeff Eastin (Pictured with Matt Bomer, above) spoke with a group of bloggers/journalists late last week to tease the summer finale, set up the rest of the season and to give us a bit of a look at his new Show, Graceland – about a beach house that serves as home to a group of young agents for various government agents (Customs, DEA, FBI…), and will be darker and more action-orientated than White Collar.
