Foxtel has confirmed it will premiere the new 10-episode drama series NURSES later this month on FOX ONE.
Filmed in Canada, five young nurses work on the frontlines of a hospital in downtown Toronto, dedicating their lives to helping others while figuring out how to help themselves.
Modern medicine is about solutions, to make the patient better, but nursing is about care and making the patient matter. NURSES is a high-stakes, ensemble medical drama set in the emergency unit of St. Mary’s Hospital.
The newly appointed nurses must navigate the traumatic and emotional rollercoaster of modern nursing while trying not to let their personal lives seep into their life-and-death work.
Personalities will clash, nerves fray, and hearts will be tested as they learn to care for their patients while learning how to take care of themselves. They soon realise that each one of them brings something unique to their group and that they will have to rely on each other to survive.
The Hollywood Reporter named Tiera Skovbye (Riverdale) in their 2019 list of “Emerging Entertainment Talent”. Tiera stars as Grace Knight, the only one of the group who has held a previous nursing job and is hoping for a fresh start at St. Marys. Natasha Calis plays Ashley, and Cathy White as Head Nurse Sinead O’Rourke.
In the first episode Keon (Jordan Johnston-Hinds) assists a patient who goes into early labour, Naz (Sandy Sidhu) cares for a victim of a terrorist van attack and helps his mother make a difficult decision, Wolf (Donald MacLean Jr) tries to reunite missing fingers with their owner.
Producers Global TV recently confirmed a second season to screen in 2021.
