TV show description:
Set at Miami’s Community Medical Center, the sitcom follows a group of nurses with a wide range of personalities and backgrounds; strong-willed Annie Roland (Arnetia Walker), sarcastic Sandy Miller (Stephanie Hodge), dim-witted Julie Milbury (Mary Jo Keenen), and Latina Gina Cuevas (Ada Maris).

Others working at the hospital include arrogant Dr. Hank Kaplan (Kip Gilman), wise-cracking orderly Paco Ortiz (Carlos Lacamara), hospital administrator Casey McAfee (Loni Anderson), and slimy white-collar ex-con Jack Trenton (David Rasche) who is forced to work at the hospital as part of community service work.

The series was created by Susan Harris and is a spin-off of Empty Nest.

Canceled and renewed TV show

    My wife and I attended the filming of a “Nurses” episode in Hollywood. I guess you could say we were among the ‘Live Audience’. There were about 100 people seated in the viewing area, the stage was below us, and they had monitors around the seats to playback segments to the audience. The episode we watched being filmed had a famous character from “Cheers” co-starring as a hospital administrator. I think his Cheers character name was “Cliff” and he was a postal employee on that show. I remember the episode was about a motorist who was cited for some vehicular misdemeanor, and he was sent to the hospital for a community service sentence. It was interesting to watch how they produced these shows. The funny thing was, we didn’t actually ‘See’ “Cliff” during his segment. He was being filmed in a different part of the studio. Only after the ‘wrap’, and after the audience chanted “Cliff! Cliff! Cliff!” for five minutes, did he eventually step out from behind the partition and give us a nice wave.
