The peacock network, NBC, ordered three pilots on Friday for the 2015-2016 season, and one of them is a medical based soap entitled, Heart Matters.
Heart Matters is medical soap about Alex Panettiere, a heart transplant surgeon who struggles to balance her romantic and professional life with her career! Amy Brenneman (Private Practice) and Brad Silberling will executive-produce alongside writer Jill Gordon (My So-Called Life). Susan Carlson, Eric Carlson, Kelly Meyer and Kathy Magliato will co-executive-produce.
