"Heartbeat" (TV show), formerly known as "Heartbreaker," is a medical drama series on NBC that is based on the real life and achievements of Dr. Kathy Magliato.

This unique character-driven series follows the professional and personal life of world-renowned heart transplant surgeon Dr. Alex Panttiere (Melissa George, "The Slap"). There is nothing conventional about Dr. Panttiere, who is as cutting edge and unorthodox in the OR as she is with the two men in her life. Her approach to medicine is without boundaries, as is her approach to everything else in her world.Between Dr. Panttiere's hectic hospital life that includes a tumultuous love triangle with two brilliant but stubborn surgeons (Dave Annable and Don Hany) and her household of two kids and a homosexual rock star ex-husband (Joshua Leonard), Alex is constantly striving to overcome numerous daily obstacles and be the best mother and doctor possible.

The cast also includes Jamie Kennedy, D.L. Hughley, Shelley Con, Maya Erskine and JLouis Mills.

"Heartbeat" is produced by Universal Television with Jill Gordon, Amy Brenneman, and Brad Silberling serving as executive producers.
