  • Parisa Fitz-Henley will play the lead role in the drama pilot written by David Cornue and Erica Messer. She previously starred for two seasons in NBC's Midnight, Texas and one season in USA's The Sinner. She also recurred on Netflix's Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.
  • She will play Dr. Finley Briar. Ambitious and warm with a great sense of humor, she is a brilliant trauma surgeon who can think 15 moves ahead in the surgical chess match against time. Sometimes her amazing medical judgment gets her into trouble, bypassing hospital protocol in favor of the quickest path to saving a life. In 2011, Finley is a promising first-year intern with a knack for saving lives in the nick of time, and she's trying to figure out how love fits into her life. In 2021, Finley is a happily married and pregnant trauma surgeon at the top of her game but struggling with her work/life balance. In 2031, Finley is the survivor of a shocking accident and is trying to get her life back on track.
