MERCY from NBC – First Look

September 23, 2009 by  

Trying to decide which shows to watch tonight?  Here’s a little bit about NBC’s new medical drama, MERCY.

“Mercy,” a new medical drama with a unique point of view, portrays the lives of the staff at Mercy Hospital as seen through the eyes of those who know it best — its nurses. Nurse Veronica Callahan (Taylor Schilling, “Dark Matter”) returns to Mercy from a military tour in Iraq — and she knows more about medicine than all of the residents combined. Together with fellow nurses Sonia Jimenez (Jamie Lee Kirchner, “Rescue Me”) and Chloe Payne (Michelle Trachtenberg, “Gossip Girl”), Callahan navigates through the daily traumas and social landmines of life and love both inside the hospital and out in the real world. The cast also includes: James Tupper (”Men in Trees”) as Dr. Chris Sands, a new doctor at the hospital who complicates Veronica’s life; Diego Klattenhoff (”Supernatural”) as Mike Callahan, Veronica’s husband; and Guillermo Diaz (”Weeds”) as Nurse Angel Lopez. “Mercy” is a production from Universal Media Studios and Berman Braun. Joining writer/executive producers Liz Heldens (NBC’s “Friday Night Lights”) and Gretchen Berg & Aaron Harberts (”Pushing Daisies,” “Pepper Dennis”) are executive producers Gail Berman and Lloyd Braun. Emmy Award winner Adam Bernstein (NBC’s “30 Rock,” “Rescue Me”) is the director.

    A drama about nurses on NBC? Hmm…I just saw a promo on TNT for a drama starring Jada Pinkett Smith about nurses called HawthoRNe and made a sarcastic remark about how clever the show’s creators were for working RN into the name of the show (much like NBC did with the LA in Southland). It will be interesting to see which of these nursing dramas pulls ahead of the other.

    don’t forget the new Edie Falco show on Showtime, I think it’s called Nurse Jackie? apparently it’s the year of the nurse…

    Was this the show that had the line “Much stuff blows up” in the promo? My mom’s pretty pumped for Mercy. I may give it a shot.

    Sidebar: How come Michelle Trachtenberg never gets recognition for her role as Nona F. Mecklenberg on The Adventures of Pete & Pete? I’d say that was some of her best work.

    I think the Mercy is really worthwhile. It is written by the same writer that writes Friday Night Lights, Liz Heldens, who I think is fantastic. Definitely worth checking out – Wednesday at 8 pm on NBC!
