The Resident — written and EP’d by Amy Holden Jones (ABC’s Black Box), and Code Black duo Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi — centers on Devon Pravesh (played by Halt and Catch Fire‘s Manish Dayal), an idealistic young doctor who begins his first day under the supervision of a tough, brilliant senior resident, Conrad Hawkins (played by Czuchry), who pulls the curtain back on all of the good and evil in modern day medicine. Lives may be saved or lost, but expectations will always be shattered. VanCamp plays Nic, an attractive nurse who also happens to the on-again-off-again romantic fling of Czuchry’s Conrad.
The cast also includes Bruce Greenwood (American Crime Story) and Shaunette Wilson (Billions).
This marks the fourth series order from Fox ahead of next week’s upfront presentation, joining Marvel’s mutant drama The Gifted and comedies Ghosted and LA to Vegas.
