By Indiewire | Indiewire May 28, 2009 at 7:56AM

indieWIRE is offering a sneak preview of the entire first episode of Showtime's new series "Nurse Jackie." The series - created by Liz Brixius, Linda Wallem and Evan Dunsky - follows Jackie (Edie Falco in her first regular TV role post-"Sopranos"), a New York City nurse balancing the challenges of working in an urban hospital with an equally frenzied personal life. And this being a dark comedy from Showtime, Jackie also has a weakness for Vicodin and Adderall to get her through the days.

indieWIRE is offering a sneak preview of the entire first episode of Showtime's new series "Nurse Jackie." The series - created by Liz Brixius, Linda Wallem and Evan Dunsky - follows Jackie (Edie Falco in her first regular TV role post-"Sopranos"), a New York City nurse balancing the challenges of working in an urban hospital with an equally frenzied personal life. And this being a dark comedy from Showtime, Jackie also has a weakness for Vicodin and Adderall to get her through the days.

In addition to Falco, the cast includes Peter Facinelli ("Six Feet Under") as a golden boy doctor, Paul Schulze (once Falco's co-worker on "The Sopranos," played Father Phil Intintola) as Jackie's lover, and Haaz Sleiman ("The Visitor") as Jackie's gay coworker, (in)appropriately named Mo-Mo. The pilot was directed by Allen Coutler ("Hollywoodland"), while Steve Buscemi has signed on to direct multiple future episodes.

The series does not premiere until June 8th at 10:30 (after "Weeds"), but you can enjoy the first episode here, and now:
