Midnight, Texas alumna Parisa Fitz-Henley is set to headline Triage, ....

Fitz-Henley will play the character in all three time frames.

Ambitious and warm with a great sense of humor, Dr. Finley Briar is a brilliant trauma surgeon who can think 15 moves ahead in the surgical chess match against time. Sometimes her amazing medical judgment gets her into trouble, bypassing hospital protocol in favor of the quickest path to saving a life. In 2011, Finley is a promising first-year intern with a knack for saving lives in the nick of time, and she’s trying to figure out how love fits into her life. In 2021, Finley is a happily married and pregnant trauma surgeon at the top of her game but struggling with her work/life balance. In 2031, Finley is the survivor of a shocking accident and is trying to get her life back on track.

Sounds interesting; I'd like this to be a success just for Michael Ealy. Though, I'm kinda over the 'genius who breaks the rules (but for good reasons!!)' trope.

From Deadline's commentary:

Quote

Medical drama pilot Triage, told in three different time frames, has been on a different trajectory. Considered a long shot after its first cut did not fare well and was deemed a bit confusing, a recut has changed the project’s fortunes by testing well, putting the drama in serious contention.

More gossip from Deadline:

...

Deadline understands that the pilot did not fare well with the first cut, fared better with the second cut, which had promising testing results, but faced new challenges during screenings. It, like the rest of these pilots, will be considered for midseason.
