“All we wanna do is help our patients.” In the one-hour drama ‘The Resident’ a tough, brilliant senior resident guides an idealistic young doctor through his first day, pulling back the curtain on what really happens, both good and bad, in modern-day medicine. “You do whatever I tell you, no questions asked.” “I need a new resident, mines a psychopath.”
“Everything you thought you knew about medicine is wrong. All the rules that you followed we’ll break. If it were easy everyone would be a doctor because this is the best job in the world despite everything. Because of everything.” Focusing on three doctors at different stages of their careers and a dedicated young nurse, ‘The Resident’ is a provocative new medical drama that rips back the curtain to reveal the truth of what really happens, both good and bad, in hospitals across the country.
“This just isn’t what I imagined.” “Medicine isn’t practiced by saints it’s a business.” The once-optimistic young doctor’s eyes are opened to the stark realities of hospital life and he soon realizes that the practice of medicine is a business, like any other. Not all patients are angels and not all doctors are gods, but one thing’s for sure: expectations are meant to be shattered.
They have the ability to save lives and they have the power to cover up. Lives may be saved or lost, but expectations will always be shattered. Written by Amy Holden Jones, Hayley Schore, and Roshan Sethi. Philip Noyce directed the Pilot. Oly Obst and Antoine Fuqua produce. The series starring Matt Czuchry, Bruce Greenwood, Emily VanCamp, Manish Dayal, and Shaunette Wilson is set to premiere the midseason 2017 on FOX.
