Code Black


CODE BLACK is a heart-pounding medical drama that takes place in the busiest, most notorious ER in the nation, where the staggering influx of patients can outweigh the limited resources available to the extraordinary doctors and nurses whose job is to treat them all—creating a condition known as Code Black. At the heart of the ER’s controlled chaos is Residency Director Dr. Leanne Rorish (Marcia Gay Harden, THE NEWSROOM), renowned for successfully performing high-risk procedures in Center Stage - the trauma area reserved for the most critical cases. Her four new first-year residents are Christa Lorenson (Bonnie Somerville, The Ugly Truth), Malaya Pineda (Melanie Chandra, Love, Lies and Seeta), Mario Savetti (Benjamin Hollingsworth, The Joneses ), and Angus Leighton (Harry Ford, Louder Than Bombs). Leanne’s confidante, Jesse Sallander (Luis Guzman, HOW TO MAKE IT IN AMERICA), is an amiable seen-it-all senior nurse who manages the residents. Also working in the ER is Dr. Neal Hudson (Raza Jaffrey, HOMELAND), an excellent physician who sometimes disagrees with Leanne’s “cowboy” approach, and Dr. Rollie Guthrie (William Allen Young, District 9), the energetic, longest-serving attending. In Center Stage, life is measured in seconds, and these heroic doctors and nurses operate with speed and skill within an overwhelmed system to treat the crowds of people who are often there for one of two reasons: to die or to receive a life-saving miracle.
