The fifth season of Showtime’s medical dramedy series Nurse Jackie will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Friday February 14th at 10pm, it has been announced.
Created bv Liz Brixius, Evan Dunsky & Linda Wallem, Nurse Jackie follows Jackie Peyton, a nurse who has no problem bending the rules to save the lives of her patients. But she also has her own secrets to hide; something that is not always easy. For Jackie every day is a high wire act of juggling patients, doctors, fellow nurses and her own indiscretions. The series stars Edie Falco, Eve Best, Merritt Wever, Paul Schulze, Dominic Fumusa, Anna Deavere Smith, Ruby Jerins, Mackenzie Aladjem and Peter Facinelli. In the opening episode of the show’s fifth season, an overturned bus makes for a crazy day at All Saints as two new doctors join the staff: Dr. Carrie Roman (Betty Gilpin) and Dr. Ike Prentiss (Morris Chestnut). Meanwhile, O’Hara (Eve Best) just wants to spend every minute with her new son and Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith) gives Eddie (Paul Schulze) back his old job – all this, the day before Jackie’s (Edie Falco) birthday.
