Genre: Drama, Medical Drama


When Dr. Bashir "Bash" Hamed, a charismatic Syrian doctor with battle-tested skills in emergency medicine, flees his war-torn homeland, he and his younger sister Amira become refugees struggling to forge a new life in Canada.

But if Bash ever wants to be a doctor again, he must redo his medical training from the ground up and obtaining a coveted residency position is nearly impossible.

But when a horrific truck crash nearly kills a senior doctor right in front of him, Bash saves the doctor's life and earns a residency in the biggest Emergency Department of the best hospital in Toronto.

Yet for all Bash's experience, it's a tough road.

Bash's training is different, his life experiences are unique to him and he's not an exact match for his new colleagues.

These include Dr. Magalie "Mags" LeBlanc, a ferociously analytical second-year resident who pushes herself relentlessly; Dr. June Curtis, a reserved, ambitious surgical resident whose loyalty doesn't come easily; and Dr. Theo Hunter, a pediatric Emergency Fellow whose small-town upbringing is cracking wide open as life at the hospital changes his world view.

The team works tirelessly to save lives and win the approval of the legendary head of the Emergency Department, Dr. Jed Bishop, all the while managed by sharp-eyed, acerbic Dr. Wendy Atwater and supported by longtime head nurse - the deadpan, confident Claire Malone.

Through it all, Bash tries to meet the demand of his new country and new job while trying to pay the bills, raise his little sister and carve out a new life for them both in this unfamiliar land.

It's a journey that's universal to people everywhere. Bash aims high and is determined to succeed, and those around him are quick to see that his passion and hopefulness are contagious.

But will his newfound life reject him, or will this "transplant" take?

The Librarians

TX Time: 20h30
Genre: Fantasy, Drama, Adventure

The Librarians

Fantasy adventure series based on the telefilm series The Librarian which follows four new characters who work for The Library and do battle with the Serpent Brotherhood, a cult led by the mysterious, immortal Dulaque.

Returning to the universe of TNT's movie franchise The Librarian, this series centres on an ancient organisation hidden beneath the Metropolitan Public Library dedicated to protecting an unknowing world from the secret, magical reality hidden all around.

This group solves impossible mysteries, fights supernatural threats and recovers powerful artifacts, including the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Destiny and Excalibur.

For the past 10 years, Flynn Carsen has served as the Librarian, but the job has become more than one person can handle.

To aid him in his duties, the Library has recruited four people from around the world, including Eve Baird, a highly skilled counter-terrorism agent who is responsible for protecting the group and keeping them all alive.

There's also Jake Stone, an Oklahoma oil worker with an IQ of 190 and an encyclopedic knowledge of art history; and Cassandra, a quirky young woman with the special gift of auditory and sensory hallucinations linked to memory retrieval, known as synesthesia.

Finally there's Ezekiel Jones, a master of new technologies and aficionado of old classic crimes who enjoys playing the role of international man of mystery.

Overseeing the new team of Librarians is the somewhat cantankerous Jenkins, an expert in ancient lore who has been working out of the Library's branch office for longer than anyone knows.

Bob Hearts Abishola

From Two and a Half Men producer Chuck Lorre, Bob Hearts Abishola is a love story about a middle-aged compression sock businessman from Detroit who unexpectedly falls for his cardiac nurse, a Nigerian immigrant, while recovering from a heart attack and sets his sights on winning her over.

Bob runs his family's successful, highly competitive sock company with his mother, Dottie, his sister, Christine, and his younger brother, Douglas.

When the stress of the job lands him in the hospital, he meets Abishola, his kind, hard-working nurse whom he's immediately drawn to.

Now all Bob needs to do is convince her to give him a chance, which will take some doing since they couldn't be more different.

After coming to America from Nigeria to find a better life for her and her son, Dele, a straight-A student, Abishola lives in a small apartment with her super-protective relatives, Auntie Olu and Uncle Tunde.

Abishola's close friends include fellow nurse Gloria and Kemi.

Undaunted by Abishola's lack of initial interest or the vast differences in their backgrounds, Bob is determined to win her heart, in this comedic examination of immigrant life in America.
