NBC has released a trailer for their new medical drama, New Amsterdam. This is a starring vehicle for Ryan Eggold, who played Tom on the Blacklist and lead the short-lived The Blacklist: Redemption series. The series also stars Freema Agyeman, Janet Montgomery, Jocko Sims, Anupam Kher and Tyler Labine.
Here is the synopsis for the series:
Inspired by Bellevue, the oldest public hospital in America, this unique medical drama follows the brilliant and charming Dr. Max Goodwin, the institution's newest medical director, who sets out to tear up the bureaucracy and provide exceptional care. How can he help? Well, the doctors and staff have heard this before. Not taking "no" for an answer, Dr. Goodwin must disrupt the status quo and prove he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, underfunded and underappreciated hospital – the only one in the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers and the president of the United States under one roof – and return it to the glory that put it on the map.
And if you're thinking to yourself, "Wasn't there already a New Amsterdam series?" You'd be correct. Nikolaj Coster-Walsau (Games of Thrones) played an immortal police detective on the fix series ten years ago. And for those who like trivial, New Amsterdam was the original name of New York when it was founded by Dutch settlers.
New Amsterdam will air Tuesdays at 10 PM this fall on NBC.
