Yes, it’s officially okay now to ratchet up your excitement levels to almost fever pitch (but don’t peak too soon, lest you too require the services of a trauma unit…pace yourself and aim to faint with pleasure AFTER the first episode). In less than 30 days, CBS will air the premiere of Jeremy Northam’s new show MIAMI MEDICAL. The rockstars of medicine are coming!
CBS’s latest press release tells us about this first episode:
Emmy Award Winner Andre Braugher (“Men of A Certain Age,” “Homicide: Life on The Street,”) Guest Stars As Dr. William Rayner, the Head of Alpha Team
“Pilot” – The Alpha Team is aided by a new surgeon after the head of their unit goes AWOL and a restaurant explosion floods the halls of the hospital with victims, on the series premiere of MIAMI MEDICAL, Friday, April 2 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Emmy Award Winner Andre Braugher (“Men of a Certain Age,” “Homicide: Life on the Street”) guest stars as Dr. William Rayner, the head of Alpha Team.
There’s been a certain amount of early rumbling about the show, the timeslot and other assorted snipes from the supposed “people in the know”, but take all that with a huge pinch of salt because this show is going to rock. It’s made by Jerry Bruckheimer, it’s written by Jeffrey Lieber (co-creator of Lost) and it stars award-winning film actor Jeremy Northam. And don’t forget, CSI started out on a Friday evening, and you have to acknowledge it’s been rather successful!
So time to have a think about your Miami Medical party, and get the invitations written! How will you theme it? Doctors and nurses? Beach party? Crockett and Tubbs? Or if you really can’t get Jeremy Northam’s brilliant performance in The Tudors out of your head (understandable), vicars and tarts?
Viewers in the USA, spare a little pity for those of us elsewhere who have to wait a little longer to see this show (but not so much for those who get caught watching illegally…!). Enjoy the show and don’t forget to tell us all about it!
At http://www.jeremynorthaminfo.com, we’ll be counting down to April 2nd, and we’ll bring you all the latest news and pictures about the show. Come and join us!
