New US drama Heartbeat, which stars Melissa George and Don Hany will premiere in Australia on Universal Channel in early April.
George stars as a world-renowned heart-transplant surgeon who struggles to balance her personal and professional life (not to be confused with Offspring -or Grey’s Anatomy for that matter).
But there were reports Hany would be written out from the series -it’s not clear how many episodes he appears in.
The NBC series, originally called Heartbreaker, premieres in the US this week and has had mixed reviews.
It is executive produced by Jill Gordon, Amy Brenneman, Brad Silberling, Mark B. Perry and Jennifer Cecil. The cast also includes Dave Annable, Shelley Conn, Joshua Leonard, Maya Erskine, D.L. Hughley, Jamie Kennedy and JLouis Mills.
Loosely inspired by the real life and achievements of Dr. Kathy Magliato, this unique medical drama follows Dr. Alex Panttiere (Melissa George), an outspoken world-renowned heart transplant surgeon and one of the few women in her field. There is nothing conventional about Dr. Panttiere, who is as cutting edge and unorthodox in the Operating Room as she is with the two men in her life. Her approach to medicine is without boundaries, as is her approach to everything else in her world.
Between Dr. Panttiere’s hectic hospital life where she is caught between two brilliant but stubborn surgeons (Dave Annable and Don Hany) and her household of two kids and a gay rock star ex-husband, Alex is constantly striving to overcome numerous daily obstacles and be the best mother and doctor possible.
Thursday, April 7 at 8.30pm on Universal Channel.
