The promo then lingers on the operating room at the Knickerbocker Hospital, which serves as the show's setting, as the following text flashes across the screen: "Surgery wasn't always science."

A close-up shot of Clive Owen's character shows up at the end of the teaser.

The ten-part series revolves around the 1900s New York City Knickerbocker Hospital and its surgeons, nurses and staff, who pushed the bounds of medicine in a time of high mortality rates and no antibiotics.
