DESCRIPTION: (from USA's press release) A top female trauma surgeon returns home from the horrors of Iraq to take a job at an inner-city hospital. As she immediately sets about saving lives, she quickly realizes that her battlefield exercises hardly prepared her for the ludicrous bureaucratic minefields of today's public health system and the romantic war games she's about to engage. From Conaco and Universal Cable Studios, written and executive produced by Judd Pillot and John Peaslee ("According To Jim," "8 Simple Rules," "Just Shoot Me"). Executive produced by Conan O'Brien ("Andy Barker, P.I."). and David Kissinger ("Andy Barker, P.I.").
