Premiering Tuesday November 17th on NBC is “Chicago Med,” a new series from executive producer Dick Wolf – the newest installment of his “Chicago” drama franchise, which is described as an emotional thrill ride through the day-to-day chaos of the city’s most explosive hospital and the courageous team of doctors who hold it together.
Together, they will tackle unique new cases inspired by topical events, forging fiery relationships in the pulse-pounding pandemonium of the emergency room, and through it all, familiar faces from the Chicago police and fire departments will intertwine as this third team of Chicago heroes hits the ground running.
The series’ cast includes Yaya DaCosta, S. Epatha Merkerson, Oliver Platt, Laurie Holden, Oliver Platt, Colin Donnell, Torrey DeVitto, Rachel DiPillo, Brian Tee, and Nick Gehlfuss.
A very recent addition to the cast is Marlyne Barrett, best known for playing Nerese Campbell on “The Wire,” whose casting was announced just yesterday.
“Chicago Fire” creators, Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, will write and executive-produce with Matt Olmstead and Dick Wolf.
