Watch Saving Hope

NBC's new hour-long medical drama created by Malcolm MacRury ("Crash and Burn" and "Republic of Doyle") and produced by Gemini Award-winning Ilana Frank and David Wellington ("The Eleventh Hour," "Rookie Blues," and "Would Be Kings") probes the life-and-death decisions with which healthcare professionals struggle daily. For these doctors the decisions are now personal, and the audience examines these characters, their triumphs, and their challenges through chaos while they fight to keep hope alive.

The audience witnesses the turmoil at Hope-Zion Hospital when Chief of Surgery Charlie Harris (played by Michael Shanks of "Stargate Atlantis") falls into a coma on the eve of his wedding, leaving his fiancée and fellow surgeon Alex Reid (played by Erica Durance of "Smallville") and newly-arrived star surgeon Joel Goran (played by Daniel Gillies of "The Vampire Diaries") to attempt to save Harris's life. As the action plays out, the audience witnesses comatose Harris roaming the hospital halls in supposedly spirit form, leading him to question if he is indeed a ghost or merely a figment of his own imagination.

As Alex begins each new day in the hospital with a precious, but fleeting, optimism, coming to the aid of patients and their families, the audience observes Charlie's fight for his both his life and his relationships. Alex is called upon to save lives time and time again - continuing to function in her life as a surgeon - without Charlie who is neither dead nor alive. Charlie's spirit, in the meantime, spends his energy attempting to interact with Alex and the rest of the staff, but making the largest impact on the patients, much as he did as a charismatic doctor in life.

In the end, the only thing that the doctors can save is hope.
