Synopsis

From creator/executive producer Liz Heldens (Friday Night Lights), executive producers Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts (Pushing Daisies) and Gail Berman and Lloyd Braun comes Mercy, a medical drama about the lives of the people who work at Mercy Hospital seen through the eyes of those who know it best - its nurses.

Nurse Veronica Flanagan Callahan (Taylor Schilling) has just returned to Mercy Hospital from a tour in Iraq and knows more about medicine than all of the residents combined.

Together with fellow nurses Sonia Jimenez (Jaime Lee Kirchner), who turns the heads of everyone in the hospital and Chloe Payne (Michelle Trachtenberg), a naïve newcomer who learns to deal with the difficulties of working in a challenging and sometimes unsettling profession, they navigate the daily traumas and social landmines of life and love both inside the hospital and out in the real world.

The cast also includes James Tupper as Dr. Chris Sands, a new doctor at the hospital who complicates Veronica's life; Diego Klattenhoff as Mike Callahan, Veronica's estranged husband; Guillermo Díaz as Nurse Angel Lopez; and James Le Gros as Dr. Harris.
