Triage - Parisa Fitz-Henley Cast as the Lead of ABC Medical Drama Pilot



Midnight, Texas alumna Parisa Fitz-Henley is set to headline Triage, ABC’s second cycle medical drama pilot from longtime Criminal Minds showrunner Erica Messer, Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu and writer David Cornue.

Created by Cornue, Triage is a character-driven medical drama that follows pioneering surgeon Finley Briar (Fitz-Henley) over three distinct decades at the same hospital. With the evolution of medicine as the backdrop, the show explores the interconnected careers, friendships and romances of Finley and her colleagues, and their tenuous relationship with time.

Fitz-Henley will play the character in all three time frames.

Ambitious and warm with a great sense of humor, Dr. Finley Briar is a brilliant trauma surgeon who can think 15 moves ahead in the surgical chess match against time. Sometimes her amazing medical judgment gets her into trouble, bypassing hospital protocol in favor of the quickest path to saving a life. In 2011, Finley is a promising first-year intern with a knack for saving lives in the nick of time, and she’s trying to figure out how love fits into her life. In 2021, Finley is a happily married and pregnant trauma surgeon at the top of her game but struggling with her work/life balance. In 2031, Finley is the survivor of a shocking accident and is trying to get her life back on track.
