NBC Acquires Canadian Medical Drama ‘Nurses’

NBC has acquired hospital-set Canadian series “Nurses” from Entertainment One (eOne) and ICF Films, which marks its second recent Canadian acquisition in the genre following “Transplant.” Filmed and set in Toronto, “Nurses” follows five young nurses working on the frontlines of a busy downtown hospital, dedicating their lives to helping others, while struggling to help themselves. Preview episodes will air Monday, Dec. 7 and Dec. 14 at 10 p.m. ET before shifting to Tuesday, Jan. 5 at 10 p.m. ET .

The 10-episode series stars Tiera Skovbye (“Riverdale”), Natasha Calis (“The Posession”), Jordan Johnson-Hinds (“Blindspot”), Sandy Sidhu (“Home Before Dark”) and Donald MacLean Jr. (“Workin’ Moms”).

Premiering earlier this year on Global TV, the series launch became the most-watched premiere episode of a scripted Canadian series in over two years for total viewers. Season two wrapped filming in Canada earlier this year.
