FOX is going full throttle in promoting its new series "The Mob Doctor" by putting a trailer for the show in front of "The Dark Knight Rises" screenings. The preview has now made its way out online, showing Grace Devlin, a top resident at Chicago's Roosevelt Medical Center, who is torn between being loyal to the physician's oath and obeying the orders of a mob whom she owes her debt to.
Grace is hailed one of the country's most promising young surgeons. To pay off her brother's life-threatening gambling debt, she agrees to work "off book" for the mafia men she once despised. During the day, she must deal with the emotionally compelling cases at Roosevelt Medical, but in her other vastly different world, she must juggle an onslaught of mob-related demands, including operating in mob-sanctioned locations, removing bullets from dead bodies.
"My Boys" alumna Jordana Spiro takes the lead role, with William Forsythe playing the mob boss Constantine. Zach Gilford stars as Grace's blue-blooded boyfriend Dr. Brett Robinson, while James Carpinello plays her ex-boyfriend Franco, who is also Constantine's right-hand associate.
The crime drama series will air every Monday at 9/8c starting September 17 on FOX.
