Review of "New
airs Tuesdays 10/9c on NBC
This show is about the fictional New Amsterdam hospital,
the nation's oldest public hospital. A new director arrives
to try and make it the best hospital possible for its
patients. Dr Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) arrives with the
belief that just because New Amsterdam is a public hospital,
it shouldn't have to sacrifice quality care for its
patients. Dr. Goodwin has cancer and wants to do something
good to leave a legacy before his death.
is a bit slow and needs a faster pace, but the acting is
good. I think I will keep watching to see if the show's pace
gets better. This show is heartwarming and makes you want to
aspire to something better, but you have to suspend
disbelief because a hospital like this only exists on
television. I give this show a 4 out of 5 stars because it
is worth watching .
Inspired by the oldest public hospital in America, this
unique medical drama follows the brilliant and charming Dr.
Max Goodwin, the institution’s newest medical director who
sets out to tear up the bureaucracy and provide exceptional
care. How can he help? Well, the doctors and staff have
heard this before. Not taking “no” for an answer, Dr.
Goodwin must disrupt the status quo and prove he will stop
at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed,
underfunded and underappreciated hospital — the only one in
the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from
Rikers and the President of the United States under one roof
— and return it to the glory that put it on the map.
“New Amsterdam” is inspired by Dr. Eric Manheimer’s memoir
“Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital” and
his fifteen years as Medical Director at the hospital.
The cast includes Ryan Eggold, Freema Agyeman, Janet
Montgomery, Jocko Sims, Anupam Kher and Tyler Labine.
David Schulner will write and executive produce. Kate Dennis
will direct and executive produce the pilot. Peter Horton
also executive produce. Dr. Eric Manheimer will produce.
“New Amsterdam” is produced by Universal Television, Pico
Creek Productions and Mount Moriah.
