About The Show
From executive producer Peter Berg (NBC's "Friday Night Lights") comes "Trauma," the first high-octane medical drama series to live exclusively in the field where the real action is. Like an adrenaline shot to the heart, "Trauma" is an intense, action-packed look at one of the most dangerous medical professions in the world: first responder paramedics. When emergencies occur, the trauma team from San Francisco City Hospital is first on the scene, traveling by land, by sea or by air to reach their victims in time. From the heights of the city's Transamerica Pyramid to the depths of the San Francisco Bay, these heroes must face the most extreme conditions to save lives, and give meaning to their own existence in the process.
Starring in "Trauma" are Cliff Curtis ("Push") as daredevil flight medic Reuben "Rabbit" Palchuck, Derek Luke ("Notorious") as stoic paramedic Cameron Boone, Anastasia Griffith ("Damages") as strong-willed paramedic Nancy Carnahan, Aimee Garcia ("George Lopez") as tough rookie helicopter pilot Marisa Benez, Kevin Rankin ("Friday Night Lights") as edgy EMT Tyler Briggs, Taylor Kinney ("Fashion House") as rookie EMT Glenn Morris, and Jamey Sheridan ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent") as mentor Dr. Joe Saviano.
"Trauma" is a production of Universal Media Studios and Film 44. Berg, Sarah Aubrey ("The Kingdom," "Friday Night Lights"), Jeffrey Reiner ("Friday Night Lights"), Peter Noah ("The West Wing") and series creator Dario Scardapane serve as executive producers. The pilot was written by Scardapane and directed by Reiner.
