What to Watch This Fall: CBS’ Three Rivers

I love Fall, changing of the temperature, crisper nights to snuggle up and watch some good TV. After a long hard Summer of “barely anything on” it’s great to see a lot of your favorite shows coming back and, of course, have the opportunity to fall in love with some new shows!

One of the shows that you may want to tune into is CBS’ new medical drama – Three Rivers. Three Rivers goes inside the emotionally complex lives of organ donors, the recipients and the surgeons that make it all happen. Actors Alex O’Loughlin (The Shield and Moonlight) and Katherine Moennig (The L Word) star as part of the elite surgical team that – in addition to being doctors – must deal with donor families in their darkest hour, while managing the fears and concerns of apprehensive recipients.

According to an interview with Alex O’Loughlin, the show is based on a real life surgeon and Alex got to spend a lot of time researching the role in an actual hospital. I love when shows delve into the realism behind the drama. and Three Rivers seems to be a show with heart. The preview clips I watched on CBS showed a sense of humor, drama and, of course, the medical procedures.

Seems like a great series for anyone who has enjoyed ER, and misses the show now it’s off the air. I’ll be tuning in, how about you guys?

Three Rivers premieres Sunday, October 4th on CBS. You can view the preview here: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/three_rivers/
