New Canadian medical drama comes to FOX One.
New Canadian medical drama Nurses screens on FOX One later this month.
The series follows five young nurses working on the frontlines of St. Mary’s hospital dedicating their lives to helping others, while figuring out how to help themselves.
The 10 part series was created by much of the same team behind Rookie Blue, and premiered internationally in January. A second season was approved.
The ensemble cast includes Tiera Skovbye (Riverdale) as Grace Knight, a young nurse looking for a fresh start until someone from her past turns up who could jeopardize her career; Natasha Calis (The Possession) as Ashley Collins, a wild and unapologetic adrenaline junky who lives for the fast pace of the hospital; Jordan Johnson-Hinds (Blindspot) as Keon Colby, a former college football star who’s trying to prove he’s more than he was on the field; Sandy Sidhu (Grey’s Anatomy) as Nazneen Khan, the whip-smart daughter from a wealthy family in India who moved to Canada to reinvent herself and is now starting her first job ever; and Donald MacLean Jr. (Workin’ Moms) as Wolf Burke, soft hearted and playful, who has a secret that may find him in over his head.
Along with the young team of nurses, the medical series also features a supporting cast played by Cathy White (Vikings) as Sinead O’Rourke, the head nurse and den mother of the new graduates; Ryan-James Hatanaka (Chicago P.D.) as Dr. Evan Wallace, the charming and attractive head of the ER who gets all the nurses’ attention – especially Grace’s; and Nicola Correia-Damude (Shadowhunters) as Dr. Vanessa Banks, the magnetic OBGYN with a cutting wit who never lets Keon forget a mistake.
Monday June 29 at 7.30pm on FOX One.
