This medical drama set in the 1900s charts the exploits of the staff and patients at Knickerbocker Hospital in New York City, where they try to maintain their reputation for quality care while struggling to keep the doors open. In the first episode, accomplished but cocaine-addicted Dr. John W. Thackery (Clive Owen) is named chief surgeon and is pressured by a major benefactor to hire Dr. Algernon Edwards (Andre Holland), a black man, as his top assistant. Other principals introduced include Thackery's protege Dr. Everett Gallinger (Eric Johnson); young Dr. Bertie Chickering Jr. (Michael Angarano); Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance), the well-meaning daughter of the facility's major benefactor; Lucy Elkins (Eve Hewson), neophyte nurse from the country; Tom Cleary (Chris Sullivan), a brutal, opportunistic ambulance driver; Herman Barrow (Jeremy Bobb), the underhanded, duplicitous hospital administrator; and Sister Harriet (Cara Seymour), a brash, outspoken nun who's not afraid to mix it up.
