Iconic US medical drama ER is coming to All 4 to celebrate its 25th anniversary this year.
Available to stream exclusively on All 4 in a deal with Warner Bros. International Television Distribution, a season will be released every Friday following the release of season one on Thursday 19th September.
ER explores the inner workings of a Chicago teaching hospital and the critical issues faced by the dedicated physicians and staff of its overburdened emergency room. These medical professionals remain determined to save lives in a place where nothing is taken for granted and nothing is certain … nothing except that another desperate person will be rushed through the emergency room door in the next moment, in need of their help.
The original cast of the show included Anthony Edwards as Dr. Mark Greene, George Clooney as paediatrician Dr. Doug Ross, Sherry Stringfield as Dr. Susan Lewis, Noah Wyle as medical student Dr. John Carter, Julianna Margulies as Nurse Carol Hathaway and Eriq La Salle as Dr. Peter Benton.
As the show progressed the cast added stars such as Laura Innes, Parminder Nagra, Goran Višnjić, Ming-Na Wen, Maura Tierney, Mekhi Phifer and Alex Kingston.
ER combined the talents of best-selling author Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park) and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television with Peabody, Humanitas and Emmy-winning producer John Wells (The West Wing, Shameless, Animal Kingdom).
It first aired in the US on 19th September 1994 and ran for 15 seasons. It picked up nominations for more than 120 Emmy Awards during its run and aired on Channel 4 in the UK.
Charlie Palmer, Managing Editor for All 4, said: ”We’re delighted to be bringing ER home to 4. One of the TV greats, the series remains every bit as impactful in the era of binge-viewing”.
