Emmy Award-winning drama series �ER,� for its ten completed seasons, was television�s highest-rated drama among key advertising demographics for each of those seasons, a feat unprecedented in television history. Created by best-selling author Michael Crichton (�Jurassic Park�), the series centers on the medical personnel in the emergency room of a Chicago hospital. Crichton is also an executive producer, along with John Wells (�China Beach�) and Christopher Chulack.

�ER� tracks the inner workings of County General Hospital, a Level One Trauma Center where heroic doctors and nurses are faced with life-and-death decisions on a daily basis. The staff is led by Attending Physician Dr. John Carter (Noah Wyle), who, in his eleventh year at County, has risen to a role of respect and moral leadership in the ER. The chief of staff, Dr. Kerry Weaver (Laura Innes), a tough and determined administrator, finds herself at a personal crossroads, trying to strike a balance between her life as a doctor and the life she now wants as a woman.

Also on staff are Dr. Luka Kovac (Goran Visnjic), an ER attending physician from Croatia who is searching � sometimes self-destructively � for something to fill the void of his lost family and failed relationships; Abby Lockhart (Maura Tierney), who recently made the professional transition from nurse to doctor, is making a serious effort to turn her personal life around; Dr. Jing-Mei Chen (Ming-Na), an attending E.R. doc who, having sacrificed so much for her work, is looking to lighten up and get out more; Dr. Susan Lewis (Sherry Stringfield), who after a few years away has readjusted to the emergency room and recently had a baby with a man she married in Las Vegas on a whim; and Dr. Gregory Pratt (Mekhi Phifer), a brash, third-year resident with a checkered background that won�t stop haunting him.

Recent additions to the ER include Neela Rasgotra (Parminder Nagra), a British-Indian medical student who arrives in Chicago after finishing her undergraduate degree in biophysics and molecular biology at Yale. Samantha Taggart (Linda Cardellini) is a nurse and spirited single mother determined to save lives in a place where nothing is taken for granted. Dr. Ray Barnett (Shane West) has come aboard as a doctor who would sometimes rather be playing in his band than treating patients. He has a way with the ladies and a knack for making things go smoothly, most of the time.
