Fans of ABC’s popular real-life hospital series, with its signature unparalleled access, can take heart. After nearly two years of production, NY MED is back as the producers (who did Boston Med and Hopkins) broaden their lens to tell a riveting tale of high stakes medicine in two vastly different communities. This fast-paced, eight-part series mostly toggles between the orderly operating rooms of Manhattan’s New York-Presbyterian Hospital - the primary venue for the series - where renowned surgeons perform feats of medical brilliance and the sometimes hectic trauma wards of Newark’s University Hospital where skilled doctors gallantly struggle to treat a flood of gunshot, stabbing and life-threatening trauma cases. The surgeons of NY MED never forget that there are limits to what medical science can do and that sometimes their best efforts come up short.
Adrenaline-charged and poignant, this limited series—like its award-winning predecessors-- is a deep dive into the volatile world of big city hospitals. Faithful viewers might remember the dynamic trio of nurses who deliver compassionate care and stern advice in equal measure. The ER resident who became a doctor after her sister fell in the subway and lost a leg, also returns to NY MED. Each one of these returning characters faces a gamut of personal crises that impact their jobs and their lives.
"NY MED" premieres THURSDAY, JUNE 26th at 10:00 PM/ET (10:00-11:00 pm) on the ABC Television Network.
