Jaime Lee Kirchner Joins New Medical Drama Pilot ‘The Hurt Unit’

Jaime Lee Kirchner (Bull) has been cast as a series regular in the new medical drama pilot “The Hurt Unit.”  Kirchner joins previously cast Ben McKenzie, Michelle Ortiz and Augustus Prew.

“The Hurt Unit” was ordered to pilot last December at ABC and follows a highly skilled team of trauma surgeons and nurses led by Danny (McKenzie), a self-made surgeon, who race into the field to treat the patients who won’t make it to the hospital in time. When the sick and the injured can’t get to the ER, the Hurt Unit (Hospital Urgent Response Team) brings the ER to them.

According to Deadline, Kirchner will play Nora, a surgeon from working-class roots who got her education by joining the Navy, serving as a trauma surgeon in multiple war zones. She wants to join Dr. Danny Marsh’s (McKenzie) elite HURT Unit, and although she’s nearly as brilliant a surgeon as he is, he won’t have her on his team until she levels with him about her troubled past.

The project comes from Matt Lopez (Promised Land) and John Glenn ( SEAL Team).  Director Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man, (500) Days of Summer) will helm the pilot.

Lope and Glenn will write and exec produce with Webb also exec producing.

If “The Hurt Unit” gets a series order, the show will air on ABC and stream on Hulu in the United States. We also expect the show to arrive on Disney+ internationally.

Kirchner is best known for starring on CBS’ Bull.
