If you love medical dramas, then ‘The Night Shift’ is one of those you must watch. It is about the overnight shift at San Antonio Medical Center, where the staff adjusts without the presence of several close friends who were sacked by the new hospital owner, renowned neurosurgeon Dr Julian Cummings. The series also goes through the work-life balance of Dr Drew Alister and Dr TC Callahan, who serves at the Turkey-Syria border. It has been created by Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah. Their previous collaborations have resulted in films and TV shows like ‘Freaks and Geeks’, ‘90210’, ‘What About Brian’ and ‘Just Shoot Me’. They also serve as the executive producers for the series, while Zach Lutsky and Jill Danton take the mantle of the producers.
The Night Shift Plot: What’s it about?
The group of doctors and nurses working at San Antonio Memorial’s emergency room are doing all they can to save lives. Brilliance, knowledge, expertise, experience, and intuition are all displayed to significant effect by these professionals to do the work of God. The first season introduces the characters and sets the stage for further events. By the end of the third season, the fate of the night shift team hangs in a dangerous balance. When Paul’s father bought the hospital and fired Topher, he and the staff walked out. Even worse, TC Callahan is found unconscious after a bombing on a refugee camp. The next season begins with the staff trying to overcome the consequences of their choices. Back in Syria, TC is exposed to the relentless suffering faced by the people. He sets his mind in doing whatever he can to save their lives.
Back at home, Dr Jordan Alexander keeps the ER running and lends his service in treating more veterans and military officers. Being the father of a teenage daughter, Drew Alister (Brendan Fehr) is having second thoughts with his daredevil behaviour as an ER doctor in the Army, where he is constantly exposed to danger. Surgeon Scott Clemmens is seen continually battling with personal problems. He remains professional and does whatever he can to be dutiful, though. Paul is now on his own and has to make it without the support of his father. To make matters worse, his girlfriend, Shannon Rivera and charge nurse Kenny Fournette soon realize that there is no way that three people could live in a studio apartment.
