This Canadian medical drama features Hamza Haq as Dr. Bashir Hamed, a “charismatic Syrian doctor with battle-tested skills in emergency medicine, flees his war-torn homeland, he and younger sister Amira (Sirena Gulamgaus) become refugees, struggling to forge a new life in Canada. But if Bash ever wants to be a doctor again, he must redo his medical training from the ground up, and obtaining a coveted residency position is nearly impossible.”
When a horrific crash nearly kills a doctor, Bash saves the doctor’s life and earns himself a residency in the biggest Emergency Department in Toronto. But “Bash’s training is different, his life experiences are unique to him and he’s not an exact match for his new colleagues.”
The supporting cast includes Laurence Leboeuf as Dr. Magalie “Mags” LeBlanc, a ferociously analytical second-year resident who pushes herself relentlessly; Ayisha Issa as Dr. June Curtis, a reserved, ambitious surgical resident whose loyalty doesn’t come easily; and Jim Watson as Dr. Theo Hunter, a pediatric Emergency Fellow whose small-town upbringing is cracking wide open as life at the hospital changes his worldview.
The press release teases, “The team works tirelessly to save lives and win the approval of the legendary head of the Emergency Department, Dr. Jed Bishop (John Hannah), all the while managed by sharp-eyed, acerbic Dr. Wendy Atwater (Linda E. Smith) and supported by the longtime head nurse, the deadpan, confident Claire Malone (Torri Higginson).
Through it all, Bash tries to meet the demand of his new country and a new job, while trying to pay the bills, raise his little sister and carve out a new life for them both in this unfamiliar land. It’s a journey that’s universal to people everywhere. Bash aims high and is determined to succeed, and those around are quick to see that his passion and hopefulness are contagious. But will his newfound life reject him, or will this ‘transplant’ take?”
Transplant airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
