ER is a show about doctors , nurses who works at the hospital in Chicago.Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards) is a sympathetic, caring doctor who takes his job  seriously a little too serious at times. Peter Benton (Eriq La Salle), is the opposite of Greene, he is brash, arrogant, and sure of himself. At its heart is nurse Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies), a character that was intended for only the pilot but she did so well that she was kept on as a regular cast member. Her empathy for her patients and the other doctors grounds the group. Susan Lewis (Sherry Stringfield) has a similar empathy and grace. Finally, there is the new student doctor John Carter (Noah Wyle), who is brilliant but has doubt, and who acts as a sort of guide for the audience due to being new on the floor.

Here is the thing Michael Crichton had Steven Spielberg on board and were looking for actors when they had almost the all cast they were missing a character Dr. Ross so one of the producer said about Clooney nobody wanted Clooney on board because all the fail series he was in that lasted a year. So any way they thought they were going to give him a try. The studio did not want to make the series they figured that who is going to understand the jargon that the doctor speak. So they shot a pilot and invited   200 audience members to see it. When it was all over they voted and the number when up. The studio could not believe it so they invited 200 new audience members to see the pilot and the numbers when up. It took a while for the studio to say finally yes to it. When it was broadcast Clooney told the gang you will never walk the street again without being recognized. So they took off to take a vacation to Spain before they all got famous. Clooney’s career took off thank god and so did this series. it is a fast pace show showing the doctors working in the ER days in and out.The frustration, the hard work, and sometimes the heartbreak when they lost patients. A very well thought out and well as written series that went 15 years running.
