Lead by an ensemble cast, Code Black is a new medical drama from Intelligence’s Micheal Seitzman about the team within the most notorious and busiest ER in the country. While most have the resources necessary to deal with all of its incoming patients, there are times when the amount of those in need of attention outnumber that of the resources, a phenomenon known as “Code Black.” When that happens, all bets are off – you’re either hoping for a miracle or performing one.
First thoughts: This definitely feels like the closest anyone’s come to doing ER in the present day, so if that’s your thing, you might want to give it a go.

Life in Pieces is a new comedy series from creator Justin Adler (Better Off Ted) about the life of a family told through four different stories, concerning its various family members.
First Thoughts: Considering this past season marked the conclusion of Parenthood, it’s no surprise there are some networks trying to fill the empty void that is a family-based dramedy, but this definitely has some potential. And I’m not just saying that because I’ll watch anything for Don Keefer.
