TV show description:
This dramatic series revolves around uncovering the mysteries of the human brain —
Catherine Black (Kelly Reilly) is a world-famous neurologist who is brilliant, beautiful, and at the top of her game. However, few know that she’s also bipolar. The medical director of The Cube, this complex woman draws patients from all over the world. Outside of work, she keeps multiple secrets from her family and loved ones.

Doctor Ian Bickman (Ditch Davey) is a brilliant neurosurgeon and a known womanizer. He’s handsome and funny but his work comes first. He’s always treasured his freedom — until he met Catherine.

On the other side is Will Van Renseller (David Ajala), a handsome and trailblazing new chef in Brooklyn. He’s smart and ready to settle down with Catherine but her secret may derail their happiness.

Doctor Owen Morely (Terry Kinney) is the chief of staff and department chairman of The Cube. He’s Catherine’s former teacher, current boss, mentor and a fellow neurologist. He’s a true gentleman. Lina Lark (Ali Wong) is an intelligent and eccentric radiology technician who’s hiding a secret of her own.

Joshua Black (David Chisum) is Catherine’s best friend, confidante, and brother. He’s her protector and stands by her side, keeping her rooted along. His wife is Reagan (Laura Fraser). She’s a complex woman who sometimes finds it a struggle to stand by and support Catherine knowing all her secrets. Things are more complicated by the fact that her teen-age daughter, Esme (Siobhan Williams), looks up to her aunt.

Doctor Helen Hartramph (Vanessa Redgrave) is Catherine’s very intuitive and insightful psychiatrist. She’s more than just Catherine’s doctor, she’s also a mentor. She knows more about Catherine than anyone else, and holds the key to her mysterious background.

PLEASE RENEW BLACK BOX . Myself . ( an RN) An adult daughter ( with a history of mental illness) AND a Grandaughter who’s in college and interested in neuroscience. ARE ALL ENJOYING THE SHOW ALOT . Of course the LEAD CHARACTER DR Black ( KELLY RILEY ( and her personal complex side ) AND THE neurosurgeon story line give it just the right amt of sex appeal … Etc etc etc. AND THE JAZZ SOUNDTRACK IS PERFECT TO SET THE MOOD OF PARTICULAR SCENES

I think Black Box is smart and sexy. It has my vote for a second season!

Please do not cancel this show. Last night was the best episode yet. Three great illnesses dealt with. Bickman cannot handle a relationship & focus on his work. Will is moving on. Catherine’s brother is giving up on her. She is struggling to manage her illness, her work & maintain a relationship. Please give it time to find a larger audience. This is a show that makes you think. So much junk out there.

DO NOT CANCEL THIS SHOW !!! It’s the only TV show on that you do have to use your BRAIN to understand it and that’s not what the American is into anymore they want to only look at programs or movies or games that only have murder and violence it’s sad!

I do not like the show. Propaganda when it comes to vaccines! They must be getting a kick back from pharm companies .

I am truly hoping that in the next season they write in medical marijuana treatments for Catherine’s bi polar and other various alternative medicines for The Cube neurological patients as well!

why do you always breakup a mix couple on a tv series


Les July 11, 2014 at 12:04 am

How brave to create a show like this. Don’t cancel now. It seems as though if a show isn’t a cookie cutter, re-creation of what has already been done, it gets cancelled. This show is also of benefit to those dealing with mental illness – a great step in removing the stigma.
Keep it on!
