New Series: Medical series with a difference

Transplant, a new Canadian hospital series, will start on Universal TV on DStv and it promises to be fresh and exciting. The series will start at 20:00 on 30 November.

The medical series follows Dr Bashir “Bash” Hamed, a charismatic Syrian doctor with battle-tested skills in emergency medicine, who flees Syria with his younger sister to forge a new life in Canada. But if Bash ever wants to be a doctor again, he must redo his medical training from the ground up, and obtaining a coveted residency position is nearly impossible. 

When a horrific truck accident nearly kills a senior doctor right in front of him, Bash saves the doctor’s life and earns a residency in the Emergency Department of York Memorial, one of the best hospitals in Toronto. Bash must work hard to overcome the numerous obstacles that he faces with the demands of a new country and new job.

In its first season at CTV, Transplant was the most-watched Canadian original series and saw audience growth as the season progressed. The drama has since been renewed for a second season and has also been a ratings success on NBC in the US.
