About the Show

The Night Shift is an American medical drama television series created by Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah which follows the lives of the staff who work the late night shift in the ER at San Antonio Medical Center, where every night is a balancing act between the heroic efforts to save lives and the hard truths of running a hospital.

Welcome to the night shift, where the toughest and craziest cases always seem to come through the door. Every shift is a fight between the heroic efforts of saving lives and the hard truths of running an underfunded hospital.

At San Antonio Memorial, the men and women who work the night shift are an irreverent and special breed, particularly adrenaline junkie TC Callahan (Eoin Macken, Merlin). After three grueling tours of duty in Afghanistan, TC is about to learn that his toughest battles will be fought right here at home.

He and his irreverent team of late-night docs, including his best friend Topher (Ken Leung, Lost) and protégé Drew (Brendan Fehr, Roswell), know how to let off steam with the casual prank or two, but when lives are at stake, they are all business.

New night shift boss - and TC's ex-girlfriend - Dr. Jordan Alexander (Jill Flint, The Good Wife) struggles to keep everyone in check, but TC doesn't make it easy. Paul (Robert Bailey Jr., Coraline) is fresh out of medical school and still adjusting to the rigours of an emergency room.

Krista (Jeananne Goossen, Alcatraz), also a new intern, has something to prove, while Kenny (JR Lemon, Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas) is a seasoned nurse who keeps the doctors focused and isn't afraid to break a few rules to get the job done.

Meanwhile, Landry de la Cruz (Daniella Alonso, Revolution), the lone psychiatrist on the night shift, finds she has to tend to her colleagues as much as she cares for the patients on the ward.

Unfortunately, the night shift is now under new senior management and boss Michael Ragosa (Freddy Rodriguez, Six Feet Under) has to balance the real-world pressures of cutting costs while battling the stigma that he is more interested in saving money than helping people.

But TC has never met a rule he couldn't break or a person he won't fight. If Ragosa wants a war... he'll get one.

Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Freaks and Geeks) and Pierre Morel (Taken) serve as executive producers. Night Shift is a production of Sony Pictures Television.
