Airdate: The Resident

New US drama The Resident will debut on Seven next Monday night.

The series is described as is “a powerful new medical show focusing on a young doctor’s final years of training that rips back the curtain to reveal the truth of what really happens, both good and bad, in hospitals across the country.”

It stars Matt Czuchry (The Good Wife), Manish Dayal (Halt and Catch Fire), Emily VanCamp (Revenge), Moran Atias (24: Legacy), Merrin Dungey (Big Little Lies), Shaunette Renée Wilson (Billions), Melina Kanakaredes (CSI: NY, Providence) and Bruce Greenwood (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Mad Men).

Seven’s Director of Programming, Angus Ross, said: “The Resident is one of the most talked about shows from the LA screenings and we are thrilled to have secured this hotly anticipated medical drama.”

It premiered in the US in January.

Monday February 26 at 9pm on Seven.

  1. Im looking forward to this. I know it’s another doctor show but when I saw who was in it I thought awesome. Matt Czuchry I adored in The Good Wife and Emily was fantastic in both Brothers and Sisters and Revenge. Cant wait.

  2. I do not care for the young lady from revenge….I like The Good Doctor…have not watched many other medical shows…excepts real life…24 Hours in ER (SBS) …..

  3. It is almost impossible, having worked in hospitals, to watch any hospital “drama” especially American ones which are so far from the truth that they may as well be classified as Fantasy.

    The promos for this one look even worse than the usual. Producers have no interest in showing true hospitals, they just want dramatic backgrounds for their impossibly beautiful junior doctors to act as if they are running the health system while hooking up in linen rooms.

  4. I think Seven have been clever in promoting this show with Emily Van Camp, rather than Matt Czuchry who plays the central character, and referencing Revenge, which was arguably Seven’s last consistent US hit (prior to The Good Doctor).
