Medical drama Nurses premieres January 6 on Global

From a media release:

Global announced today the first series headlining the winter 2020 schedule as new original medical drama Nurses scrubs in beginning Monday, January 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. From Entertainment One (eOne) and ICF Films, the coming-of-age series follows five young nurses working on the frontlines of a busy downtown Toronto hospital, dedicating their lives to helping others, while struggling to help themselves. Airing Monday nights for 10 weeks, Global is treating viewers to an exclusive online preview of the character-driven drama, pre-releasing the premiere on New Year’s day on GlobalTV.com.

Starring an ensemble cast of young talent, Nurses follows Grace Knight (Tiera Skovbye, Riverdale), a young nurse looking for a fresh start, until someone from her past turns up who could jeopardize her career; Ashley Collins (Natasha Calis, The Possession), a wild and unapologetic adrenaline junkie who lives for the fast pace of the hospital; Keon Colby (Jordan Johnson-Hinds, Blindspot), a former college football star who’s trying to prove he’s more than he was on the field; Nazneen Khan (Sandy Sidhu, Home Before Dark), a whip-smart daughter of a wealthy family in India who moved to Canada to reinvent herself and is now starting her first job ever; and Wolf Burke (Donald MacLean Jr., Workin’ Moms), soft hearted and playful, but with a secret that may find him in over his head.

Along with the young team of nurses, the medical series also features a supporting cast played by Cathy White (Vikings) as Sinead O’Rourke, the head nurse and den mother of the new graduates; Ryan-James Hatanaka (Chicago P.D.) as Dr. Evan Wallace, the charming and attractive head of the ER who gets all the nurses’ attention – especially Grace’s; and Nicola Correia-Damude (Shadowhunters) as Dr. Vanessa Banks, the magnetic OBGYN with a cutting wit who never lets Keon forget a mistake.

Stationed in every tendril of a busy downtown trauma centre and thrust into frontline medical action, Nurses sees five recent graduates beginning their careers in a high-stakes hospital with pressure cooker training. Forming an inextricable bond, the nurses struggle to find a work-life balance that matches and counters the intensity of their new job. Their interaction with patients, relatives, and staff quickly leads them to the discovery that nursing isn’t just about biology, chemistry, and anatomy, it’s also about psychology, compassion, and romantic complications.

Link: Jason Priestley leaves it on the dance floor for Private Eyes
When you think of Jason Priestley, the first word that comes to mind isn’t “dancer.”

The Vancouver-born actor studied dance in theatre school back in the mid-1980s “and that’s probably as far as that goes,” he says. But he had to put that training to use earlier this year for an episode of his Global TV series Private Eyes. Continue reading.
