The Knick [Cinemax]
« on: 18 June, 2014., 15:30:56 CEST »

Set in downtown New York in 1900, 'The Knick' is a new Cinemax drama series from Academy Award and Emmy-winning director Steven Soderbergh. It is centered on the Knickerbocker Hospital and the groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff who work there, pushing the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics. Soderbergh directs all 10 episodes of the series' first season.

Academy Award and Emmy nominee Clive Owen stars as Doctor John Thackery, a brilliant surgeon pioneering new methods in the field, despite nursing a severe addiction to cocaine. He leads a team of doctors including his protégé Dr. Everett Gallinger; the young Dr. Bertie Chickering Jr.; and Algernon Edwards, a promising surgeon who's been recently thrust upon him. The lively cast of characters at the hospital also includes Cornelia Robertson, the daughter of its benefactor; surly ambulance driver Tom Cleary; Lucy Elkins, a fresh-faced nurse from the country; the crooked manager Herman Barrow; and Sister Harriet, a nun with who isn't afraid to speak her mind.

The writing team of Jack Amiel and Michael Begler ("Raising Helen," "Big Miracle"), who wrote the pilot for the series, serve as executive producers, along with Soderbergh, Owen, Michael Sugar ("Rendition") and Gregory Jacobs ("Behind the Candelabra"). Michael Polaire ("Behind the Candelabra") produces; Steven Katz ("Behind the Candelabra") is a consulting producer.

Viđam reklame po regionalnom Cinemaxu i sve vreme mislim da se radi o filmu.

Valjda ovo bude nivo iznad ostalih Cinemaxovih serija.
