HEARTBREAKER Earns a Spot on NBC’s Fall 2015 Primetime Schedule

New medical drama Heartbreaker, based on the real life and achievements of Dr. Kathy Magliato, will hit screens, Tuesdays this Fall.

The character-driven medical drama follows Dr. Alex Panttiere (Melissa George, The Slap), an outspoken world-renowned heart-transplant surgeon and one of the few women in her field.

Stubborn and fearless, Alex always operates on her own terms. She revels in a racy personal life that’s a full-time job in itself, manages the daily demands of skeptical faculty and dutiful interns, and pushes the boundaries of medical science to impressive new heights.

The cast includes Melissa George, Dave Annable, Don Hany, Shelley Conn, D.L. Hughley, Jamie Kennedy, Maya Erskine, J. Louis Mills and Joshua Leonard.

Jill Gordon serves as writer and executive producer.

Amy Brenneman, Brad Silberling and director Robbie Duncan McNeill also executive produce.

Catch a first look at the new drama in the clip below, and in our first look gallery.
