According to the official website of “The Night Shift.” Here is the synopsis of the hospital drama. “At San Antonio Memorial, the men and women who work the night shift are an irreverent and special breed, particularly adrenaline junkie TC Callahan. After three grueling tours of duty in Afghanistan, TC is about to learn that his toughest battles will be fought right here at home. He and his irreverent team of late-night docs, including his best friend Topher and protégé Drew, know how to let off steam with the casual prank or two, but when lives are at stake, they are all business.”
“Unfortunately, the night shift is now under new senior management and boss Michael Ragosa has to balance the real-world pressures of cutting costs while battling the stigma that he is more interested in saving money than helping people. But TC has never met a rule he couldn't break or a person he won't fight. If Ragosa wants a war...he'll get one.”
“The Night Shift” has an ensemble cast. Here are 6 characters, Eoin Macken (Dr. TC Callahan), Jill Flint (Dr. Jordan Alexander), Brendan Fehr (Drew), Daniella Alonso (Dr. Landry De La Cruz), Freddy Rodríguez (Michael Ragosa) & Ken Leung (Topher).
