Ving Rhames is one of those dudes who just keeps working – in studio films, indie films, TV, even commercials (he’s pushing Buicks now).

 

And it looks like we’ll be seeing more of Rhames on TV with news today that TNT has ordered a new medical drama series pilot from Emmy-winning writer-producer David E. Kelley and CNN chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta, on whose book the project is based.

Ving Rhames will star along with Alfred Molina in Monday Mornings, as the series will be called, which is set in a fictional Portland hospital, and follows the lives of doctors as they “push the limits of their abilities and confront their personal and professional failings.”

 

The series uses as a backdrop the hospital’s Monday Morbidity and Mortality conference, considered the most secretive meeting in all of medicine, where doctors gather for a confidential review of complications and errors in patient care.

 

Rhames has signed on to play a “physically imposing former professional football player who now is the most celebrated trauma chief in the country.”

 

So Marsellus Wallace is about to go medieval on some trauma room asses.

 

But should be a steady paycheck for Ving… TNT has picked up 10 episodes for a premiere in summer 2013.

 

Gupta is executive producing.
