Former Shield executive producer Adam Fierro has been tapped as executive producer/showrunner of USA Network‘s newly picked up drama series Rush, written, directed and executive produced by Jonathan Levine. The project, from Fox 21, centers on Dr. William Rush (Tom Ellis), who 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. Little Engine’s Gina Matthews and Grant Scharbo also executive produce. This marks the first showrunner stint for 24 alum Fierro, repped by ICM Partners and attorney David Fox, who recently worked on Dexter and The Walking Dead.
