Edie Falco returns to her Emmy Award-winning and SAG-nominated role as Jackie Peyton, a strong-willed and brilliant - but very flawed - emergency room nurse.
In the sixth season, Jackie returns to the demons of her addiction. It is a daily high wire act with no net. She's trying to cope with a real relationship with Frank Verelli (Adam Ferrara), an ex-husband Kevin (Dominic Fumusa), a daughter who is growing up way too fast (Ruby Jerins) and a sponsor who she can't seem to shake (Julie White).
Something's gotta give...
