Three Rivers was a medical drama television series that premiered on CBS in 2009. The show revolved around the lives of doctors and staff at Three Rivers Hospital, a renowned transplant center located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The series starred Alex O'Loughlin as Dr. Andy Yablonski, Katherine Moennig as Dr. Miranda Foster, Daniel Henney as Dr. David Lee, and Alfre Woodard as Dr. Sophia Jordan.

Dr. Andy Yablonski was the head surgeon of Three Rivers Hospital and the main protagonist of the show. He was known for his exceptional surgical skills and ability to handle high-pressure situations, often leading his team in complex operations. Dr. Miranda Foster, on the other hand, was a brilliant surgery fellow who struggled to balance her personal and professional life. Despite being an expert in her field, she dealt with insecurities that often affected her work.

Dr. David Lee was a cardiac surgeon at Three Rivers and was also known for his charm and charisma, which he used to win the trust of his patients. Dr. Sophia Jordan was the head of surgery at the hospital and often had to deal with the politics of running a transplant center, while also being a voice of reason for her colleagues.

The show explored the personal and professional lives of the characters, as they dealt with the day-to-day challenges of working in a transplant center, such as the ethical dilemmas that arise during organ transplants, the emotional toll on patients and their families, and the struggles of balancing their personal lives with their demanding jobs.

One of the unique aspects of Three Rivers was its approach to storytelling. Instead of following one patient for an entire episode, the show frequently told multiple stories throughout each episode. This allowed the audience to see the diverse range of patients and surgeries that took place at Three Rivers, as well as the unique perspectives of the doctors and staff involved in each case.

The show explored complex medical issues such as organ trafficking, the ethics of organ donation, and the challenges faced by transplant recipients. Three Rivers also highlighted the importance of organ donation and transplantation, educating viewers on the process and encouraging them to consider becoming organ donors.

Despite its strong cast and unique storytelling approach, Three Rivers was cancelled after only one season. The show struggled with ratings and faced tough competition from other shows during its time slot.

Overall, Three Rivers was a compelling medical drama that engaged viewers with its interesting medical cases and dynamic characters. The show tackled important issues related to organ transplants and inspired viewers to consider becoming organ donors. While its run was short-lived, Three Rivers remains a memorable and thought-provoking series.

Three Rivers is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on October 4, 2009.
