"Monday Mornings" (TV show) on TNT is a powerful series from award-winning producer David E. Kelley ("Ally McBeal," "Chicago Hope") and practicing neurosurgeon and CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, M.D., on whose book the series is based.

The medical drama stars Ving Rhames ("Pulp Fiction"), Alfred Molina ("Spider-Man 2," "The Company"), Jamie Bamber ("Battlestar Galactica"), Jennifer Finnigan ("Better with You"), Bill Irwin ("CSI: Crime Scene Investigation"), Keong Sim ("Glee"), Sarayu Rao ("Lions for Lambs"), and Emily Swallow ("Southland").

Set at the fictional Chelsea General Hospital in Portland, Oregon, "Monday Mornings" follows the lives of doctors as they push the limits of their abilities and confront their personal and professional failings. The title refers to the hospital's weekly morbidity and mortality conference, when doctors gather with their peers for a confidential review of complications and errors in patient care.

Leading the staff at Chelsea General are Dr. Harding Hooten (Molina), the steely-eyed chief of surgery, and Dr. Jorge "El Gato" Villanueva (Rhames), the hospital's trauma chief. Their cadre of medical talent includes hotshot neurosurgeons Dr. Tyler Wilson (Bamber) and Dr. Tina Ridgeway (Finnigan); the abrasive Dr. Buck Tierney (Irwin); the socially challenged Dr. Sung Park (Sim); the petite-but-formidable Dr. Sydney Napur (Rao); and inquisitive resident Dr. Michelle Robidaux (Swallow).

"Monday Mornings" is produced by TNT Originals and David E. Kelley Productions. Kelley and Gupta both serve as executive producers. Kelley penned the pilot episode, which was directed and executive-produced by Bill D'Elia ("Boston Legal," "The West Wing"). TNT has teamed up with Turner Broadcasting System International, Inc. to produce this global series. The show, which will air on TNT and Turner networks around the world, will be distributed by TBS International outside of the United States and Canada.
