Sky Atlantic to screen Nurse Jackie
Sky Atlantic HD have acquired CBS series Nurse Jackie from Season 3 onwards.
Stephen Tague of CBS says: “CBS Studios International is pleased to continue its relationship with Sky. NURSE JACKIE is an excellent fit for Sky Atlantic HD and will enhance an already high quality schedule.”
Nurse Jackie stars Edie Falco, of The Sopranos fame, as the title character Jackie Peyton, a strong-willed and brilliant — but very flawed — emergency room nurse working in the complicated and frenzied environment of a New York City hospital. A lapsed Catholic with a weakness for painkillers to get her through the days, Jackie keeps the hospital balanced with her unique bedside manner and own brand of medical justice. Every day is a high-wire act of juggling patients, doctors and fellow nurses along with her indiscretions.
Elaine Pyke, Director of Programmes, Sky Atlantic HD said: “Sky Atlantic HD has already established itself as home to the most iconic, exceptional and talked about shows, and NURSE JACKIE is the perfect new addition to our slate. It’s sharp, witty and has an edge which we’re sure our viewers will love. We look forwarding to welcoming Jackie’s fans, old and new.”
Nurse Jackie Season 3 will air exclusively on Sky Atlantic HD and Sky Atlantic from Tuesday 5 July at 10pm.
