"The Knick" (TV show) on Cinemax is a drama series starring Academy Award and Emmy nominee Clive Owen ("Children of Men," "Hemingway & Gellhorn," "Closer").

Set in New York City in 1900, the series centers on Knickerbocker Hospital and the groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff, who push the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics. The newly appointed leader of the surgery staff is the brilliant, arrogant renegade Dr. John Thackery, whose addiction to cocaine and opium is trumped only by his ambition for medical discovery and renown among his peers.

Into the all-white staff and patient hospital comes the equally gifted Harvard graduate Dr. Algernon Edwards, who must fight for respect while trying to navigate the racially charged city.

Trying to maintain its reputation for quality care while realizing a profit, the Knickerbocker makes an effort to attract wealthy clientele, while literally struggling to keep the lights on.



In addition to Owen, the ensemble cast includes André Holland ("42"), Jeremy Bobb ("The Wolf of Wall Street"), Juliet Rylance ("Frances Ha"), Eve Hewson ("Enough Said"), Michael Angarano ("Empire State"), Chris Sullivan ("The Normal Heart"), Cara Seymour ("An Education"), Eric Johnson ("Rookie Blues"), David Fierro ("Birdman"), Maya Kazan ("Frances Ha"), Grainger Hines ("Lincoln"), Leon Addison Brown ("Mo' Better Blues") and Matt Frewer ("Max Headroom").

Produced by Anonymous Content, "The Knick" is directed by Academy Award winner and Emmy nominee Steven Soderbergh ("Traffic," "Side Effects," "Behind the Candelabra"). Gregory Jacobs ("Behind the Candelabra"), Steven Soderbergh, Michael Sugar ("Rendition") and Clive Owen executive produce. The writing team of Jack Amiel & Michael Begler ("Raising Helen," "Big Miracle") writes and executive produces. Michael Polaire ("Behind the Candelabra") produces.
