After Rookie Blue, the American TV network, ABC, will add a second Canadian TV series called Combat Hospital to its next summer schedule. The simulcast date has yet to be announced.
In Canada, Combat Hospital, which is a Canadian and British co-production, will air on Global, the same TV network that broadcasts Rookie Blue. Unlike the latter, Combat Hospital should openly display its Canadian roots.
The TV series Combat Hospital is set in a military hospital in Kandahar (in Afghanistan) and is based on the Role 3 Multinational Medical Unit (MMU). We get to follow doctors and nurses hailing from Canada, the USA, the UK and other allied countries.
The central character is a Canadian trauma surgeon Rebecca Kincaid who has to take tough decisions on the field.
The cast hasn't been announced for Combat Hospital.
The show was created by Jinder Chalmers and Douglas Steinberg (Psych). The showrunner will be Daniel Petrie Jr. (Beverly Hills Cop).
