According to the LA Times and NY Times, Steven Soderbergh has confirmed that he will be directing a ten-part television series for cable channel Cinemax. As Patrick Kevin Day reports, the show, entitled The Knick, ”is set in the Knickbocker Hospital in New York City, circa 1900. It tells the story of the doctors, nurses and staff who did their best to advance medicine in a time where medical standards were far, far more primitive than they would be just three decades later.?”
It will star Clive Owen, who will serve as co-executive producer, with Soderbergh directing all ten episodes of the series.
