For most physicians, the Hippocratic oath is sacred. But for one Chicago doctor, who is indebted to the mafia, saving lives isn’t her only concern. "THE MOB DOCTOR"
is a fast-paced medical drama focusing on a young female surgeon caught between two worlds as she juggles her promising medical career with her family’s debt to Chicago’s Southside mob.
DR. GRACE DEVLIN (Jordana Spiro) is a top resident at Chicago’s Roosevelt Medical Center. Smart and self-assured, she’s heralded as one of the country’s most promising young surgeons. But family ties keep her glued to her Southside roots. To pay off her brother’s life-threatening gambling debt, she makes a deal with the devil and agrees to work “off book” for the mafia men she once despised.
At the hospital, Grace must deal with emotionally compelling cases – a young woman in need of a heart transplant, a family decimated by a hit-and-run driver, the mass chaos in the wake of an ‘L’ train collision. But in her other vastly different world, she must juggle an onslaught of mob-related demands, including operating in illegal backrooms, treating hit men hiding from the law, performing emergency surgery on a high-end call girl, even saving a juiced-up race horse.
All the while, Grace must keep her dual life a secret from everyone: her protective best friend, NURSE ROSA “RO” QUINTERO (Floriana Lima); her handsome, blue-blooded boyfriend, DR. BRETT ROBINSON (Zach Gilford); her boss at Roosevelt Medical and Chief of Surgery, DR. STAFFORD WHITE (Željko Ivanek); her rival, DR. OLIVIA WILCOX (Jaime Lee Kirchner); even her well-meaning screw-up brother, NATE (Jesse Lee Soffer), and her perpetually in-denial mother, DANIELLA (Wendy Makkena). (Source:
