As seen on Sky Atlantic, a brilliant surgeon pushes the boundaries of medicine, morality and race relations at a New York City hospital at the turn of the 20th Century in Season One of this 10 episode, ground-breaking medical drama. Steven Soderbergh's Oscar®-winning-eye tells the story of Dr. John Thackery (Golden Globe® nominee Clive Owen; Bourne Identity, Children of Men, Inside Man) and his groundbreaking work at The Knickerbocker Hospital (a.k.a. "The Knick") which faces a major upheaval due to an exodus of affluent patrons, an infusion of poor patients, and gross mismanagement of its finances.
As he searches to solve a plethora of medical mysteries and develops a cocaine habit, Thackery must deal with a variety of co-workers and patients, including driven new arrival, Dr. Algernon Edwards (Andre Holland; Bride Wars) and the wealthy and influential Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance; Sinister, Frances Ha, Animal).
The Knick also stars Eric Johnson (Legends of the Fall, Smallville), Michael Angarano (Almost Famous), Eve Hewson (This Must Be The Place), Cara Seymour (American Psycho), Jeremy Bobb (The Wolf of Wall Street) and Chris Sullivan (The Normal Heart).
