The show stars Edie Falco as Jackie Peyton, a nurse with a complicated history and a somewhat twisted relationship with justice. She truly wants what's best for her patients, but that makes her a bit of a renegade, putting her on the wrong side of doctors, families, and maybe even the law. Her personal life is equally fraught with conflict, and — like another fictional health professional we know and love — she depends on a cocktail of strong drugs to get her through her days.
If you don't have Showtime or just want to check out the show before you commit, I've got the whole first episode right here. Also, if you live in one of 10 cities around the country, you might be able to see the show's first two episodes on a movie screen June 3. Interested? To get a peek at the pilot, just read more.
