I have just found a great new show to watch, and I think a lot of you are going to love it as well! I had the opportunity to watch the premiere of Necessary Roughness before it premieres on USA on June 29th at 10PM EST. This is a time I really wish I had a DVR because I usually make myself go to bed at 10pm.. but I think I’ll make an exception for this show because I totally fell in love with it.
About The Show:
Dr. Dani Santino (Callie Thorne) is a Long Island psychotherapist whose personal life unravels when she finds her husband cheating. Diving fully into her work, she takes on the challenge of rehabbing a bad boy professional football player (Mehcad Brooks) whose off-the-field antics threaten his career and the team franchise. Underestimated at every turn, she succeeds beyond expectations and soon finds herself as the most sought-after therapist for high-profile clients. Athletes, entertainers, politicians and others living in the spotlight clamor for her unique brand of tough love therapy during their moments of crisis. Although her career is reenergized, it wreaks havoc on her life as a newly minted single mom of two teenagers. Recognizing her ability to change people’s lives, she’s determined to strike a balance between both worlds.
Stars Of the Show:
The series stars Callie Thorne (“Rescue Me,” “Californication”), Marc Blucas (“Knight and Day,” “Buffy, The Vampire Slayer”), Mehcad Brooks (“True Blood,” “Desperate Housewives”) and Scott Cohen (“Law & Order: Trial By Jury,” “Gilmore Girls”). Patients that Dr. Dani will be helping this season include a NASCAR race car driver, a news anchor, an obsessive-compulsive football player, poker player, extreme sports junkie and some of the football players wives. Amanda Detmer (“What About Brian”) and Craig Bierko (“Sex and the City”) guest star in the pilot, and and Concetta Tomei (“Providence”) appears in a recurring role.

I haven’t enjoyed a regular tv show in awhile., But I am now in love with Necessary Roughness. The main character is highly sarcastic plus super strong! It’s not going to be your happy go lucky family show. You will want to go along for the ride though! So far I love all of the supporting characters as well! For me I felt like the show played more like a movie, so glad that it’s a show though so I can continue seeing all of the characters!
