TNT has ordered 10 episodes of the David E. Kelley medical drama Monday Mornings, the network announced on Tuesday.
Based on the eponymous book by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the series chronicles the professional and personal lives of five Portland, Ore., surgeons. The title refers to the hospital's weekly morbidity and mortality conference, when doctors gather with their peers for a confidential review of complications and errors in patient care.
Alfred Molina stars as the chief of surgery at Chelsea General. Ving Rhames plays the hospital's trauma chief, and Battlestar Galactica alum Jamie Bamber and Jennifer Finnigan are the hotshot neurosurgeons who are having a fling. Bill Irwin (CSI), Keong Sim (Glee), Sarayu Rao (Lions for Lambs) and Emily Swallow (Southland) round out the ensemble cast.
The series is scheduled to premiere in summer 2013.
