CHICAGO MED Premieres Tonight
November 17, 2015 by Mike McNamara
The long-awaited latest addition to the Dick Wolf Chicago franchise is finally set to debut on small screens all over the country as CHICAGO MED premieres tonight at 8 pm Central on NBC. And it should be in good hands tonight, with NBC ratings superstars THE VOICE leading off at 7 pm and the series that started the whole trilogy, CHICAGO FIRE, following the MED premiere at 9 pm.
Here's a quick introduction to the CHICAGO MED team, courtesy of TV Guide: Bold and ever-capable trauma fellow Dr. Connor Rhodes (Colin Donnell, “Arrow”) is the newest doctor on staff at Chicago Med. Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss, “Shameless”), chief ER resident, is a 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 PD will intertwine with Chicago’s newest medical heroes.
Dick Wolf, Andrew Schneider, Diane Frolov, Matt Olmstead, Michael Brandt, Derek Haas, Danielle Gelber, Arthur Forney and Peter Jankowski are executive producers. CHICAGO MED is produced by Universal Television and Wolf Films.
