Complications starts June 18 on USA. It begins with a two-hour premier that should be plenty of time to get people hooked if it’s any good.
The star is Jason O’Mara as Dr. John Ellison. The women in the series are all arrayed around him in one way or another – other doctors, his wife, nurses. The women look like an important and compelling part of the drama, and not just something stuck in the story to make the lead male look good.
Also featured are Gretchen (Jessica Szohr), a nurse; John’s wife, Samantha (Beth Riesgraf), and Dr. Bridget O’Neill (Lauren Stamile).

Jessica Szohr as Gretchen Polk.
Lauren Stamile as Dr. Bridget O’Neill.
I’m happy to say that the main cast includes two black men who are not gang bangers. They are played by Ronreaco Lee and Chris Chalk.
I’m going to give it a chance. Do you think it’s worth a look?
