The-Night-Shift-NBC-image-the-night-shift-nbc-36400775-1280-727

In the new NBC drama series THE NIGHT SHIFT, extraordinary measures are taken to save lives. But even when it is to save a life, someone has to be accountable for the cost to do it. So there is an inherent tension in running an E.R. where doctors will do anything to help their patients, but some have to think about the red-tape and financial burden that it carries. It’s a tough-love relationship that must be enforced or hospitals would be forced to close their doors.

At San Antonio Memorial Hospital, that pivotal role is offered to Dr. Jordan Alexander (Jill Flint). Unfortunately, that role also comes with a more personal conflict, her ex-boyfriend T.C. Callahan (Eoin Macken) will be working directly under her. But as Jordan and T.C. discover, love never quite dies, it just gets buried for awhile. Yet those reawakened feelings are tested as Jordan knows that no matter how much she admires T.C., she is terrified by his approach to saving lives as he does not think twice about the cost to do it.

THE NIGHT SHIFT is also not just a medical drama confined to the hospital. It stretches and encompasses a world where trauma demands they go into the field, which means rushing to plane crashes, helicopter accidents, auto accidents, dealing with tornadoes, hunting accidents and the wilds of Texas where boar roam freely. THE NIGHT SHIFT explores what it takes to be a trauma surgeon in and out of the hospital and the unique trials and challenges that presents.

In a fun joint interview co-stars Jill, Eoin and J.R. hilariously talked about about the craziness of working together on THE NIGHT SHIFT: [Read more…]
