About The Knick
Wiki-background
The Knick is set in downtown New York in 1900 and is centered on the Knickerbocker Hospital (“The Knick”) and the professional and personal lives of groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff who work there, pushing the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates, limitations of the then-current medical understanding and practice, and zero antibiotics. Clive Owen stars as Doctor John Thackery, a brilliant surgeon pioneering new methods in the field, despite his secret addiction to cocaine and opium. Dr. Algernon Edwards, a Harvard-educated, European-trained black surgeon must fight for respect within the all-white populated hospital, as well as the racially-charged city. While literally struggling to keep the lights on, the hospital attempts to attract a wealthy clientele, without sacrificing quality care.
