Season 1, episode 1

Includes a conversation with director Steven Soderbergh and actor Clive Owen

Academy Award®–winning director Steven Soderbergh's new project is a series made for Cinemax that spills as much blood as it does moral outrage. The Knick refers to the Knickerbocker Hospital in downtown Manhattan. At the turn of the 20th century, the Knick wants to be the place where the future begins, but it is mired in the traditions of the recent past—racism, sexism, and corruption—that prevent it from moving forward. Clive Owen (who, along with Soderbergh, is one of the show’s executive producers) stars as Dr. John Thackery, the Knick’s Shakespeare-obsessed head surgeon. He’s a man whose ambition is hobbled by equal parts arrogance, bellicose loquacity, and sensitivity to his patients and a bewildering—and compelling—mix of modern thought and slavish fealty to conventional wisdom. The cast also includes Andre Holland, Juliet Rylance, Michael Angarano, Eve Hewson, Eric Johnson and Matt Frewer. Soderbergh and Owen are part of a Q&A after the screening.
