We sense a survivor!
Inspired by Bellevue, the oldest public hospital in America, the series follows the brilliant and charming Dr. Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold of Blacklist fame), the institution’s newest medical director who sets out to tear up the bureaucracy and provide exceptional care. Dr. Goodwin must prove he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, underfunded, and underappreciated hospital to return it to the glory that put it on the map. The cast also includes Freema Agyeman, Janet Montgomery, Jocko Sims, Anupam Kher, and Tyler Labine.
We felt the Dr. Goodwin character came on a little strong - perhaps even unrealistic in the pilot - but if handled properly with storylines that concentrate on championing for better care, etc., this show could prove to be a standout medical drama.
