Nurse Jackie is one of ShowTime's current original dramas. An American hospital drama created by Liz Brixius, Linda Wallem and Evan Dunsky, Nurse Jackie is now in its fourth season. The series stars Edie Falco, a multi-Emmy winning actress, in the title role of Jackie Peyton. This character is both a narcotics addict and a functioning nurse in the emergency room of All Saint's Hospital in New York City, New York.

Both funny and heartbreaking, this show illustrates the tightrope that Jackie Peyton must walk to balance both her demanding career and the circus of her personal life. While there has been criticism regarding the show's portrayal of nurses involved in unethical practices, the overall feel of the show has been positive. Nurse Jackie was recently renewed for an upcoming fifth season, but the two women producers will be stepping down from the project and Clyde Phillips will assume their duties.

Following the lead of many other cable dramas, the story lines carry across multiple episodes. While Jackie makes some cringe-worthy decisions, they are generally made with the good of the patient in mind. Jackie often takes risks that leave the viewers wondering if the outcome was worth the cost. Or more importantly, if she would have made the same choices if she had been sober. However, that doesn't seem to be the case often.

Nurse Jackie is a strong showcase for Edie Falco. The other cast members fade into the background as her character does her thing. While a television show set in a hospital is nothing new or original, it is a fresh take to see a strong female cast in the role of Anti-Hero. That's the concept that makes this show fresh and original.
