ER is an American medical drama series created by Michael Crichton for NBC. It ran from September 19, 1994 to April 2, 2009 for 15 seasons.
The series follows the lives, both personal and professional, of the doctors, surgeons and nurses of County General Medical Hospital in Chicago. It was particularly notable for launching the career of George Clooney, who played Dr Doug Ross. Ross's colleagues included Dr Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards), Dr Susan Lewis (Sherry Stringfield), trainee John Carter (Noah Wyle) and nurse Carol Hathaway (Juliana Margulies). Over the course of 15 years, the cast rotated and changed several times, but many members of the original crew returned for the show's final episodes.
