TVWise continues our Upfronts coverage with a first look at NBC’s new drama series Heartbreaker.
Heartbreaker is described as “a unique character-driven medical drama” following Dr. Alex Panttiere, an outspoken world-renowned heart-transplant surgeon and one of the few women in her field. Stubborn and fearless, Alex always operates on her own terms. She revels in a racy personal life that’s a full-time job in itself, manages the daily demands of skeptical faculty and dutiful interns, and pushes the boundaries of medical science to impressive new heights.
Based on the real life and achievements of Dr. Kathy Magliato, the hour-long series was created by Jill Gordon and is set up at NBC’s sister studio Universal Television. The cast includes Melissa George, Dave Annable, Don Hany, Shelley Conn, D.L. Hughley, Jamie Kennedy, Maya Erskine, J. Louis Mills and Joshua Leonard. The executive producers are Jill Gordon, Amy Brenneman, Brad Silberling and director Robbie Duncan McNeill.
