'Chicago Med' Poised to Build on the Hit NBC Franchise
About the series
Bold and ever-capable trauma fellow Dr. Connor Rhodes (Colin Donnell, Arrow) is the newest doctor on staff at Chicago Med. Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss, Shameless), chief ER resident, is the brother of CPD's Det. Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer). Halstead practiced medicine in New York before returning to his Windy City roots and is the epitome of reliability, both in and out of the hospital. Dr. Daniel Charles (Oliver Platt, The Big C), Med's Chief of Psychiatry, possesses remarkable insight into his patients and is off-the-charts intelligent in all subjects but his own personal life. Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson, Law & Order), the Chief Administrator of Clinical Operations of Chicago Med, expects the very best from her people as she balances the tremendous pressures of running the city's largest hospital, and always with a sense of humanity that allows her doctors to provide the very best care possible.
Dr. Natalie Manning (Torrey DeVitto, The Vampire Diaries) specializes in emergency pediatric medicine and is completely focused and dedicated to her patients, despite being in the third trimester of her pregnancy. Dr. Ethan Choi (Brian Tee, Jurassic World) found his calling in medicine while serving as a Navy combat doctor. Currently on away rotation, he is a tireless yet impulsive doctor who is well versed in infectious diseases. Fourth-year medical student Dr. Sarah Reese (Rachel DiPillo, Jane the Virgin) is a super proficient overachiever who has never struggled at anything, but who may soon find that, for the first time, she's in over her head. April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta, I Will Always Love You: The Whitney Houston Story) is a smart, bold and intuitive ER nurse who is the lifeblood of the emergency room. She loves the action inside the hospital and is as loyal as they come.
Together, they will confront Chicago's most critical medical cases and challenging ethical dilemmas with courage, compassion and state-of-the-art treatment. Inspired by ripped-from-the-headlines cases, Chicago Med will weave cutting-edge medicine with the personal drama that comes with working in such a high-intensity environment. Through it all, familiar faces from Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. will intertwine with Chicago's newest medical heroes.
Dick Wolf, Andrew Schneider, Diane Frolov, Matt Olmstead, Michael Brandt, Derek Haas, Danielle Gelber, Arthur Forney and Peter Jankowski are executive producers. Chicago Med is produced by Universal Television and Wolf Films.
