Season 1

Heartbeat is an American medical drama television series based on the real life of Dr. Kathy Magliato, as described in her book Heart Matters, about a world-renowned heart-transplant surgeon at the fictional St. Mathews Hospital in Los Angeles, who struggles to balance her personal and professional life.

Heartbeat is a character-driven medical series that follows the professional and personal life of world-renowned heart transplant surgeon Dr. Alex Panttiere (Melissa George, The Slap).

There is nothing conventional about Dr. Panttiere, who is as cutting edge and unorthodox in the OR as she is with the two men in her life. Her approach to medicine is without boundaries, as is her approach to everything else in her world.

Stubborn and fearless, Alex always operates on her own terms. She revels in a racy personal life that's a full-time job in itself, manages the daily demands of skeptical faculty and dutiful interns, and pushes the boundaries of medical science to impressive new heights.

Between Dr. Panttiere's hectic hospital life where she is caught between two brilliant but stubborn surgeons (Dave Annable and Don Hany) and her household of two kids and a gay rock star ex-husband (Joshua Leonard), Alex is constantly striving to overcome numerous daily obstacles and be the best mother and doctor possible.

Jamie Kennedy, D.L. Hughley, Shelley Con, Maya Erskine, Joshua Leonard and JLouis Mills also star.

Inspired by the real life and achievements of Dr. Kathy Magliato, Heartbeat is executive produced by Jill Gordon, Amy Brenneman, Brad Silberling and produced by Universal Television.
