NBC orders medical drama


NBC has handed down a pilot order for a medical drama that first appeared on the radar for development last season.

The show, which is currently untitled, is from 90210 (reboot, not original) writers and executive producers Gabe Sachs and Jeff Jugah. The pair also created Life As We Know It. The show was previously known as After Hours and The Last Stand. It is the second off-cycle pilot ordered by NBC this season, after The Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives.

The show has been described as an ensemble medical drama. The pilot follows Army doctors working the last shift at a San Antonio Hospital. Joint Base San Antonio (former Fort San Houston) is located in San Antonio and is the headquarters of Army Medical Command and the Army Medical Department Center and School. So apparently these are new-ish doctors.

NBC decided to hold off on the show after May's upfronts, but recently ordered a second script.

Sony Pictures TV is producing the pilot alongside Sachs/Judah Productions.

It truly amazes me how many shows NBC orders. Every day it seems that another series has been ordered by the Peacock. 

Personally, this show sounds played out to me. Do we really need so many medical dramas?
