Back in our July/August 2014 issue, we told you about ER doctor-turned-filmmaker Ryan McGarry ’05, who directed the acclaimed documentary Code Black. In our last update, it looked like a dramatic adaptation of Code Black was headed for a prime-time TV run. Now, it’s confirmed: Code Black will debut on Wednesday, Sept. 30 on CBS, and will feature a loaded cast, including Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden.

Code Black made a cameo at Monday’s annual Television Critics Association event, where several of the show’s stars gave a brief overview of what we can expect. Harden called the medical drama “real” and “gritty,” while co-star Luis Guzman said “I’ve been doing this for a long time, but this show is different in that … you’re showing up to do a real shift,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Per The Reporter, the show “is set in the busiest and most notorious ER in the nation, where the staff confronts a broken system in order to protect their ideals and the patients who need them the most.” You can check out a preview right here.

Oh, and McGarry was on his way to the TCA event Monday when he sent us this shot of a downtown L.A. billboard promoting the show. Pretty cool.
