As the weather gets cooler in New York, the more I try entertain myself indoors. Today I'm refusing to go outdoors and instead I've grabbed a fresh cup of coffee and my laptop so I can snuggle up in bed with my new favorite show Chicago Med on NBC's TVEverywhere! If you love Law & Order, than this show is for you! It just premiered Nov. 17 and you can catch the very first episode here.
Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf (“Law & Order” brand) delivers “Chicago Med” — the newest installment of the compelling “Chicago” franchise — an emotional thrill ride through the day-to-day chaos of the city’s newest state-of-the-art trauma center and into the lives of the courageous doctors, nurses and staff who hold it all together.
Bold and ever-capable E.R. attending physician Dr. Connor Rhodes (Colin Donnell, “Arrow”) is the newest doctor on staff at Chicago Med. Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss, “Shameless”) is an Ivy League-trained trauma surgeon and brother of CPD’s Det. Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer). Halstead practiced medicine in New York for 10 years before returning to his Windy City roots and is the epitome of reliability, both in and out of the hospital. Dr. Daniel Charles (Oliver Platt, “The Big C”), Med’s Chief of Psychiatry, possesses remarkable insight into his patients and is off-the-charts intelligent in all subjects but his own personal life. Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson, “Law & Order”), the venerable head of Chicago Med, expects the very best from her people as she balances the tremendous pressures of running the city’s largest hospital, and always with a sense of humanity that allows her doctors to provide the very best care possible.
Together, they will confront Chicago’s most critical medical cases and challenging ethical dilemmas with courage, compassion and state-of-the-art treatment. Inspired by ripped-from-the-headlines cases, “Chicago Med” will weave cutting-edge medicine with the personal drama that comes with working in such a high-intensity environment. Through it all, familiar faces from “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.” will intertwine with Chicago’s newest medical heroes.
