CODE BLACK, based on the award-winning documentary by Ryan McGarry, is CBS’s heart-pounding new medical drama that takes place in the busiest, most notorious ER in the nation where the staggering influx of patients can outweigh the limited resources available to the extraordinary doctors and nurses whose job is to treat them all — creating a condition known as Code Black. At the heart of the ER’s controlled chaos is Residency Director Dr. Leanne Rorish (Marcia Gay Harden, center/right in white), renowned for successfully performing high risk procedures in Center Stage, the trauma area reserved for the most critical cases. Her confidante, Jesse Sallander (Luis Guzman, center/left wearing white gloves), is an amiable seen-it-all senior nurse who manages the residents. Also part of the mix is Dr. Neal Hudson (Raza Jaffrey, at the foot of the patient on the left), an excellent physician who disagrees with Leanne’s “cowboy” approach, and Mario Savetti (Benjamin Hollingsworth, at the head of the patient on the left), one of Leanne’s four new first year residents. The series premieres Wednesday, Sept. 30 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network. Photo: Neil Jacobs/CBS ©2015 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights Reserved
