And we're off to the second day.
And as if the broadcast networks would not be generating enough news this week, now cable network TNT has brought itself into the mix with a series order.
TNT has ordered David E. Kelley medical drama "Monday Mornings" to series with an order of 10 episodes, it has announced.
The project stars Ving Rhames ("Kojak"), Alfred Molina ("The Company"), Jamie Bamber ("Battlestar Galactica"), Jeniffer Finnigan ("Better With You"), Bill Irvin, Keong Sim ("Glee"), Sarayu Rao ("Lions for Lambs")and Emily Swallow ("Southland").
Set at the fictional Chelsea General Hospital in Portland, Ore., Monday Mornings follows the lives of doctors as they push the limits of their abilities and confront their personal and professional failings. The title refers to the hospital’s weekly morbidity and mortality conference, when doctors gather with their peers for a confidential review of complications and errors in patient care.
David E. Kelley and practicing neurosurgeon/CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, on whose book the project is based, are exec producing.
