The Knick On Cinemax @AtTheKnick #TheKnick @Cinemax
The Knick premieres on Cinemax August 8th. I've yet to see more than short clips. It's stars Clive Owen and is produced and directed by Steven Soderbergh which I think is a pretty strong recommendation in and of itself. The show has already been picked up for a second season, so at the very least the network really likes it!
The network describes it like this:
Clive Owen is the brilliant and complicated chief surgeon of a hospital in 1900 Manhattan. Set in The Knickerbocker Hospital "The Knick" introduces us to the new frontier of medicine at the turn of the century and to the colorful ensemble cast of characters.
Based on the the bits I've seen, which include Clive Owen's character having a drug problem and a penchant for the ladies as well as some pretty gory medical procedures, this will not be family viewing and may be a bit too blue for some. But if you aren't too squeamish I think it might be great.
