‘Code Black’ Season 2: First Look at Rob Lowe’s Debut (WATCH)

Days after his Comedy Central Roast, fans can get a first look at Rob Lowe in his upcoming series regular role on “Code Black,” thanks to the newly released Season 2 trailer.

The first look video includes an introduction to Lowe’s character, as well as a refresher on the existing cast members populating the medical drama, including Marcia Gay Harden as Dr. Leanne Rorish, the ER Residency Director at Angels Memorial Hospital, and Boris Kodjoe as Dr. Mike Campbell, the Chief of Surgery.

It was announced in July that Lowe would join Season 2 as Colonel Ethan Willis, a doctor in the U.S. Military’s prestigious Combat Casualty Care research program who has been pulled out of a combat hospital in Afghanistan and embedded at Angels Memorial to teach staff what the military has learned about combat medicine. Lowe’s hire followed a cast shakeup that saw Season 1 regulars Bonnie Somerville and Raza Jaffrey exit the series.

The show, based on the documentary by Ryan McGarry, takes place in an understaffed and overcrowded hospital in Los Angeles. The cast also includes Luis Guzman, Melanie Chandra, Harry Ford, Benjamin Hollingsworth, Jillian Murray and William Allen Young.

Lowe was previously a series regular on shows such as “The West Wing,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Brothers & Sisters” and last season’s shortlived comedy “The Grinder.”
