Series summary Edit
Peter Rickman (Jack Coleman), a painter, is admitted to New Kingdom Hospital after a car accident that leaves him with injuries to his head and spine; there, he discovers that the hospital is far from ordinary - the chief of staff, Jesse James (Ed Begley Jr) is a member of a strange cult; the ghost of a little girl who died on the ground centuries ago (Jodelle Micah Ferland) stalks the halls, and a spirit that takes the form of an anteater (Kett Turton) keeps appearing to him. As the hospital faces destruction, the staff and patients come together to settle the restless spirits once and for all...
Disputed brand connection to Kingdom Hospital Edit
A balloon capsule seen in Lost has a list of sponsors on its side - one of these is Nozz-a-la Cola but the logo does not match the one in Kingdom Hospital. Nozz-a-la also brings in The Dark Tower series, which in turn brings in a'' of Stephen King's universe.
