Saving Hope is a Canadian supernatural medical drama television series created by Malcolm MacRury and Morwyn Brebner which follows Dr. Alex Reid, a doctor whose fiancé, Dr. Charles Harris, is in a coma after being in a car accident. The show follows the life of Charlie in his coma state and Alex dealing with patients, hoping that he will survive.
In Saving Hope, when charismatic Chief of Surgery Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks) at Hope-Zion Hospital ends up in a coma, he leaves the hospital in chaos - and his fiancee and fellow surgeon, Alex Reid (Erica Durance), in a state of shock.
Along with newly arrived star surgeon, Joel Goran (Daniel Gillies), Reid races to save Harris' life. As the action unfolds, the comatose Harris explores the hospital halls in spirit form, not sure if he's a ghost or a figment of his own imagination.
Reid, along with her fellow doctors, press on to save his life and those of their other patients as they deal with the complicated and courageous decisions that are made in their daily struggle to keep hope alive.
