Australian drama series Pulse will receive its UK premiere on My5 on Thursday August 15th, it has been announced.
Inspired by a true story of a transplant patient who became a doctor, Pulse is a high stakes drama set in and around the transplant unit of a busy Sydney teaching hospital. When successful high-flier Frankie Bell is brought crashing to earth by chronic kidney failure she targets an alternate future. Eight years on she is a practicing doctor driven to use her second chance to save others.
The drama series is a Clandestine Beyond Production, in association with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Screen Australia and Screen NSW and stars Claire van der Boom (The Pacific, Hawaii Five-0), Owen Teale (Game of Thrones, Line of Duty), Pallavi Sharda (Lion), (Spartacus: War of the Damned), Andrea Demetriades (Janet King), Arka Das (Top of The Lake), Blessing Mokgohloa (Hunters), Susie Porter (Seven Types of Ambiguity), Penny Cook (A Country Practice) and Renee Lim (Please Like Me). My5 acquired the series earlier this month in a two-year deal with ABC Commercial.
