(Ryan Eggold)

M-Net Channel 101 will air the television series New Amsterdam with the first episode on March 11, 2019, at 20h00.

Inspired by the oldest public hospital in America, this unique medical drama opens with the brilliant and charming Dr Max Goodwin, the institution's newest medical director. Ryan Eggold (The Blacklist) stars.

Dr Max Goodwin is brilliant, charming -- and the new medical director at America's oldest public hospital. While he's set on tearing down the bureaucracy to provide exceptional care, the doctors and staff are not so sure. They've heard this before, and no-one else has delivered on those promises.

Not taking no for an answer, Max disrupts the status quo and proves he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, under-funded and under-appreciated hospital -- the only one in the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers Island and the president of the United States all under one roof -- and return it to the glory that put it on the map. Inspired by Bellevue in New York City.
