New season, new challenges on ER

Combining the extraordinary talents of best-selling author Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, ER explores the inner workings of an urban teaching hospital and the issues faced by the dedicated physicians and staff of its overburdened emergency room.

The most nominated drama series in Emmy history, ER, has begun its Season-9 on Zee Caf`E9 on Thursdays at 10 p.m. Even after a record 104 Emmy nominations, 22 Emmy Awards and two prestigious Peabody Awards, the series continues to thrill and entertain viewers around the world.

Doctors in ER are determined to save lives in a place where nothing is taken for granted and nothing is certain...nothing except that another desperate person will be rushed through the emergency doors in the next moment, in need of their help.

Some will live, and some will die, but the dedication and passion of these healers always endures.
