Mark your calendar: Michael Shanks‘ new series Saving Hope will make its debut on Thursday, June 7 at 10 p.m. (E/P), both NBC and CTV have announced. The supernatural hospital drama will air simultaneously on the U.S. and Canadian networks.
The series is currently filming in Toronto.
Saving Hope tells the story of Charlie Harris (Shanks), chief of surgery at Hope-Zion Hospital, who finds himself in a coma after a car accident. Here is CTV’s description of the story:
When charismatic Chief of Surgery Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks) at Toronto’s Hope-Zion Hospital ends up in a coma, he leaves the hospital in chaos — and his fiancée and fellow surgeon, Alex Reid (Erica Durance), in a state of shock. Along with newly-arrived star surgeon, Joel Goran (Daniel Gillies), Alex races to save Harris’ life. As the action unfolds, comatose Dr. Harris explores the hospital halls in “spirit” form, not sure if he’s a ghost or a figment of his own imagination. Reid, along with her fellow doctors, press on to save his life and those of their other patients, as they deal with the complicated and courageous decisions that are made in their daily struggle to keep hope alive.
Erica Durance co-stars as Charlie’s fiancée, Dr. Alex Reid. Stargate fans who don’t know her from Smallville may recognize her from her guest appearance as Teal’c’s neighbor, Krista James, in the eighth season episode “Affinity.”
