Rush was an Australian television drama series that aired on Network Ten from 2008 to 2011. The show was produced by Endemol and starred an ensemble cast including Rodger Corser, Callan Mulvey, Jolene Anderson, Antony Starr, Nicole da Silva, Ashley Zukerman, Kevin Hofbauer, Samuel Johnson, and Catherine McClements.

The series focused on the lives and work of the Tactical Response Team (TR), a highly-skilled group of police officers who specialized in high-risk operations such as hostage rescues, bomb disposal, and counter-terrorism. Led by their commander, Leon Broznic (Corser), the TR team was made up of a diverse group of individuals with unique skill sets and personalities.

Each episode followed the TR team as they faced new challenges and dealt with the consequences of their high-pressure job. Along the way, the team also had to navigate personal relationships, family troubles, and the politics of their workplace.

One of the show's central characters was the young and eager Lawson Blake (Mulvey), a rookie member of the TR team who often found himself in over his head during their dangerous missions. His mentor and friend, Brendan "Josh" Joshua (Starr), was a seasoned veteran of the TR team who struggled to balance his job with his personal life.

Other characters included Stella Dagostino (Anderson), a tough and experienced paramedic who often worked alongside the TR team, and Kerry Vincent (da Silva), a resourceful forensic analyst who provided crucial information to the team during their operations.

Throughout the series, the TR team faced a variety of threats and challenges, from armed robberies to terrorist attacks. They also had to contend with internal conflicts and power struggles within their organization, as well as personal issues such as drug addiction and mental health struggles.

In addition to its action-packed storylines and intense performances, Rush was also praised for its realistic portrayal of law enforcement and its sensitive handling of social issues such as mental illness and domestic violence.

Overall, Rush was a gripping and adrenaline-fueled series that kept viewers on the edge of their seats with its thrilling action sequences and compelling characters. Despite its cancellation after four seasons, the show has continued to garner a dedicated fanbase and remains a beloved favorite among Australian television viewers.
