Rachel Griffiths NBC Medical Drama PIlot Cast

Rachel Griffiths to Star in NBC Medical Drama Pilot From SVU EP

Don’t worry, victims of a fictional Brooklyn catastrophic event: Rachel Griffiths is on the case.

The Six Feet Under alum has signed on to star in an untitled NBC medical drama pilot from Law & Order: SVU‘s Warren Leight, our sister site Deadline reports.

The potential series, which unfolds in real time, takes place at an understaffed hospital that becomes the New York City borough’s last viable trauma center after a holiday weekend hurricane devastates the city. With few doctors on call, the medical staff is pushed to make incredibly difficult choices to save their patients and themselves.

Griffiths’ character, Kim Masters, is a take-chargeEmergency Department nurse who is a divorced single mom of a 13-year-old son, and her mother suffers from dementia.

The cast also includes Nikki M. James (BrainDead), Paola Lazaro and Matthew James Thomas.

Griffiths’ TV work also includes Brothers & SistersCamp and When We Rise.

  1. To be honest, I’ll be okay if in two weeks (after Grimm ends) NBC replaces their whole schedule with Medical Dramas of all sorts. The Night Shifts and Chicago Med are my favorites from them.

    • Marco Piazzo says:

      The classic ER was on NBC as well.

      • I know. I remember watching that at a very young age (maybe six), and then later rewatched it all as a teenager and caught up by season 10. Medical dramas are the best (I honestly feel bad for people whose only basis for that is Grey’s Anatomy).
