Season 2

Dr. Dani Santino (Callie Thorne) thought she had it all figured out: she had a beautiful home, a successful husband, two great teenaged kids, and a satisfying career as a psychotherapist.

But when she caught her husband cheating, Dani's perfect world began to unravel, and she was forced to find a way to keep her family, her finances, and her sanity intact.

Then a romantic encounter with Matt (Marc Blucas), the handsome trainer of the local pro football team, the New York Hawks, leads to the chance for Dani to demonstrate her special brand of "tough love" therapy.

Before she can say "Hail Mary," Dani has taken on the team's unpredictable star wide receiver, Terrence "TK" King (Mehcad Brooks), as a patient and has become the most sought-after therapist for pro athletes and other high-profile personalities on Long Island.

Even with the ups and downs of being a newly divorced single parent and being employed by a demanding organisation with its very own "Fixer" — the mysterious Nico (Scott Cohen) — Dani begins to find her footing.

As football season ramps up once again, Dr. Dani has a whole new batch of issues to tackle, both personally and professionally.

Now that she's more deeply invested in the Hawks players' welfare — and in a new relationship with Matt — the pressure is definitely on to hold it all together, all while trying to keep her kids on track.

It's a whole new season...and a whole new set of crazy.

Created and executive produced by Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro (Miami Medical). Kevin Dowling (Go On) also serves as executive producer. Inspired by a true story, Necessary Roughness is a Sony Pictures Television and Universal Cable Productions co-production.
