On staff at County General Hospital are Abby Lockhart (Tierney), a recovering alcoholic trying her best to juggle a demanding residency and motherhood while everything around her seems to be falling apart.
There's Dr. Greg Pratt (Phifer), an attending fighting for the chief spot on the floor as well as for a firm grasp on his love life, and Neela Rasgotra (Nagra), a skilled surgical resident committed to growing in her craft as well as in her place on the surgical team.
Sam Taggart (Cardellini), a spirited ER nurse, is finally getting some time to explore life and love both in and outside the hospital, while Dr. Archie Morris (Grimes), the quirky-yet-talented attending is dedicated to his work but constantly distracted by his own world.
Tony Gates (Stamos), a paramedic-turned-doctor, has overcome numerous obstacles to take on the rigorous challenges of life in the ER.
Dr. Simon Brenner (Lyons) is the newest attending physician with a penchant for stirring things up, and Dr. Cate Banfield (Bassett) is a tough-as-nails attending physician whose arrival shakes up the ER.
