The second season of USA Network’s drama series Necessary Roughness will receive its UK premiere on Universal Channel on Wednesday July 22nd at 10pm, it has been announced.
Created by Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro, Necessary Roughness follows Long Island therapist Dr. Dani Santino, whose personal life unravelled when she found her husband cheating. Diving fully into her work, she takes on the challenge of rehabilitating a bad boy professional New York Hawks football player and soon finds herself a sought-after therapist to high-profile clients such as Athletes, musicians and politicians. The drama series is produced by Sony Pictures Television & Universal Cable Productions and stars Callie Thorne, Mehcad Brooks, Marc Blucas, Scott Cohen, Patrick Johnson and Hannah Marks.
The show’s 13 episode second season picks up with the aftermath of football superstar TK’s (Mehcad Brooks) shooting by a crazed fan. Six weeks later, Dr. Dani and Matt are enjoying the honeymoon phase of their still covert relationship. If only football season weren’t about to start again, they could stay in their blissful bubble. Also tackling football during the off-season, viewers will get a peek at the “backstage” drama that comes with training camp, scouting and drafting.
