I’ve been loving the new medical drama New Amsterdam starring Ryan Eggold (The Blacklist). I didn’t realize the series, and many of the events portrayed, are based on the experiences of Dr. Eric Manheimer, the real-life medical supervisor of New York’s Bellevue Hospital from 1997 to 2012. 

This article in the New York Post, Meet the real-life doctor who inspired ‘New Amsterdam, tells the story of how the series came to be and of Manheimer’s involvement.
