Cinemax has released three new promos for Steven Soderbergh's intriguing new series The Knick. The series stars Clive Owen and is set in downtown New York in 1900. The story 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.
This will be a ten-episode season, and I'll be watching it. I've always been interested in the history of this stuff, and it's exciting that it's being brought to life. With Soderbergh on board we know it's going to be great.
