While the LGBTQ representation broke records last year, this year is off to a pretty good start with the addition of two LGBTQ female characters.
Medical drama ‘Nurses’, which debuted on Global Television Network on January 6, 2020, focuses its story on a hospital in downtown Toronto.
The five main characters work and dedicate their lives to helping others while struggling to help themselves. The series focuses in part on their transition to adulthood.
“We are thrilled to welcome Nurses to Global’s winter schedule,” said Daniel Eves, Senior Vice President of TV Networks, Corus Entertainment. “Paired with Global’s breakout hits from the fall, January is the perfect launchpad for this fresh medical drama, and we can’t wait to introduce these rookie nurses to our viewers.”
