Cinemax has released the first trailer for their upcoming series The Knick which stars Clive Owen and is executive produced by Steven Soderbergh. The network hasn't issued a premiere date for this period drama set in 1900, which centers on the doctors, nurses and staff members of the Knickerbocker Hostpital in New York City. Take a look at this brief teaser, and stay tuned to find out when this show will premiere later this year.
Set in downtown New York in 1900, The Knick centers on Knickerbocker Hospital and the groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff, who push the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics. The writing team of Jack Amiel and Michael Begler (Raising Helen, Big Miracle), who wrote the pilot for the series, will serve as executive producers, along with Steven Soderbergh, Clive Owen, Michael Sugar (Rendition) and Gregory Jacobs (Behind the Candelabra). Michael Polaire (Behind the Candelabra) produces. Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming, and David Levine, vice president, HBO Entertainment, will oversee the series, which will debut on the network in 2014.
