Series run

Dr. Carter and Dr. Benton perform surgery

ER is NBC's second longest-running drama (after Law & Order), with 14 seasons, making it the longest American primetime medical drama of all time.[1]. It premiered on September 19, 1994 and has been shown on Thursday nights at 10:00 throughout its entire run. Before the WGA Writers Strike in 2007 it was widely thought, even by cast members that the fourteenth season of ER would be its last however due to the fact that only 13 out of the 22 ordered episodes are complete and the fact that as few pilots are being developed for the 2008-2009 season NBC is more likely to hold on to much of its current content - this could mean a fifteenth season for ER.[2] Image File history File links Carter_benton. ...

History and production

The novel ER was originally slated to be a movie, directed by Steven Spielberg. However, during the early stages of pre-production, Spielberg asked Michael Crichton what his current project was. Crichton said he was working on a novel about dinosaurs and DNA. Spielberg subsequently dropped what he was doing to film this project, which became Jurassic Park. Afterwards, he returned to ER and helped develop the show, serving as a producer on season one and offering advice (he insisted on Julianna Margulies becoming a regular, for example). It was also through Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment that John Wells was contacted to be the show's executive producer. Steven Spielberg (born December 18, 1946)[1] is an American film director and producer. ...

Julianna Margulies on the cover of Marie Claire Julianna Luisa Margulies is an actress whose role on the NBC drama ER brought her recognition and fame. ... Amblin Entertainment logo. ... John Wells is a theater and television producer and writer. ...


Due to a lack of time and money to build a set, the pilot episode of ER was filmed in the former Linda Vista Community Hospital in Los Angeles, an old facility that ceased operating as a medical center in 1990.[3] A set modelled after that hospital was built soon after at the Warner Bros. studios in Burbank, California, although the show makes extensive use of location shoots in Chicago, most notably the city's famous "El" train platforms. Linda Vista Hospital is a former hospital in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of East Los Angeles, California, USA. Originally the Santa Fe Railroad Hospital, the hospital was constructed for railroad employees in 1938. ... “WB” redirects here. ...

Michael Crichton wrote the script that became the pilot episode of the show in the early 1970s. It was based on some of his experiences working in an ER. By the time the pilot episode was shot and aired in 1994, it had been 20 years since it was written. On his commentary track, included on the first season DVD set, Crichton says that the script used to shoot the pilot was virtually unchanged from what he had written 20 years earlier. Dr. Lewis was written as a male character, and though producers decided Lewis should be a woman, that change didn't require an adjustment of her dialogue. The producers also decided Dr. Benton would be African-American, though he wasn't written that way. The original script had to be shortened by about 20 minutes in order to air in a two-hour block on network TV. The year 1994 in television involved some significant events. ...


Episodes

Main article: List of ER episodes

ER has had many memorable episodes, and is particularly notable for broadcasting a live episode, "Ambush," in 1997, with the NBC camera crew disguised as a PBS crew making a documentary film in the hospital. The actors performed the show again three hours later so that the West Coast airing would be live as well. This episode received Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Directing and Outstanding Lighting Direction (Electronic), and won the Emmy for Outstanding Technical Direction/Camera/Video for a Series.

Most episodes center on the ER, with almost all scenes at the hospital. There are however often at least one scene showing the goings-on of the ER staff outside the hospital. Also, there is a tradition to feature one or a few episodes each season almost completely out of the ER, for example an episode in which Carol Hathaway is drawn in to a hostage drama in a grocery store, and one in which Mark Greene and Doug Ross go on a road trip to claim the body of Dr Ross' recently deceased father.
