Code Black, based on the award-winning documentary by Ryan McGarry, is CBS's heart-pounding new medical drama that takes place in the busiest, most notorious ER in the nation where the staggering influx of patients can outweigh the limited resources available to the extraordinary doctors and nurses whose job is to treat them all—creating a condition known as "Code Black."
At the heart of the ER's controlled chaos is Residency Director Dr. Leanne Rorish (Marcia Gay Harden, far right), renowned for successfully performing high risk procedures in Center Stage, the trauma area reserved for the most critical cases. Her four new first year residents are Christa Lorenson (Bonnie Somerville, second from right), Malaya Pineda (Melanie Kannokada, center), Mario Savetti (Benjamin Hollingsworth, far left), and Angus Leighton (Harry M. Ford, not pictured). Leanne's confidante, Jesse Sallander (Luis Guzman, second from left), is an amiable seen-it-all senior nurse who manages the residents.
Tune in to Code Black Wednesdays at 10/9c.
