USA GREENLIGHTS THREE NEW DRAMA PILOTS AS THE NETWORK EXPANDS ON ITS POWERFUL SLATE OF ORIGINAL SERIES

Network Picks Up Pilots For Fox Television Studios' COMPLICATIONS and FOX21's THE NOVICE and RUSH

UNIVERSAL CITY - October 9, 2013 - Expanding on its slate of strong signature original dramas, USA Network announced today that it has greenlit three cast-contingent pilots: COMPLICATIONS from producer Matt Nix (BURN NOTICE) and Fox Television Studios and THE NOVICE from creators Joe and Tony Gayton ("Hell on Wheels") and RUSH written and produced by Jonathan Levine ("Warm Bodies") both from FOX21.

"These pilots illustrate our continued commitment to creating the next evolution of powerful original dramas for which USA is well known," said Chris McCumber, president of USA Network, "This particular mix of dramas comes from some of the top writers and producers in the industry, each of whom bring a distinct point of view and unique talent for developing high stakes storylines and compelling characters."

The announcement comes on the heels of the recently announced pilot pick-up for Universal Cable Production's untitled Sean Jablonski project, written and executive produced by Jablonski (SUITS, "Nip Tuck") and executive produced by Russ Krasnoff ("Community"). USA also just completed a successful first season of the Fox Television Studios drama GRACELAND, one of the summer's top new scripted series from executive producer Jeff Eastin (WHITE COLLAR), and is currently in production on the period alien drama HORIZON from executive producer Gale Ann Hurd ("Walking Dead") and writer and co-executive producer Bridget Tyler (BURN NOTICE).

Following are details on the pilots:

COMPLICATIONS (working title) -- After wrapping seven seasons of the popular series BURN NOTICE, Nix brings his next offering to the network with this gritty medical drama. The project centers around John Ellis, a disillusioned suburban ER doctor, who finds his existence transformed when he intervenes in a drive-by shooting, saving a young boy's life and killing one of his attackers. When he learns the boy is still marked for death he finds himself compelled to save him at any cost and discovers that his life and his outlook on medicine may never be the same. COMPLICATIONS is written and executive produced by Nix and is from Fox Television Studios.

NOVICE (working title) -- It's no secret that today's college graduates face the most difficult job market ever. The drama NOVICE takes the audience on the journey of a young man who finds that his true calling may be a life of crime. After repeatedly trying to break into corporate America, Kyle Jones returns home to his economically struggling family and his high school restaurant job, but minimum wage isn't going to help with his family's debt. So, while it is out of necessity that he seizes an unexpected opportunity to make money with a Korean crime family, it appears that this new life may have its perks as well. NOVICE is written by Joe and Tony Gayton, the creators of "Hell on Wheels," and executive produced by the 21 Laps/Adelstein team of Marty Adelstein, Shawn Levy, and Becky Clements and New Wave Entertainment's Matt Ochacher. The project is from FOX 21.

RUSH (working title) -- Writer/director Levine ("Warm Bodies," "The Wackness") along with Fox 21 and Little Engine's Gina Matthews and Grant Scharbo ("The Gates," "Popular") is the team behind the fast paced Hollywood drama, RUSH. Dr. William Rush is not your average on-call doctor -- he's not attached to any hospital, he's 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.
