Dario Scardapane creates ‘Trauma’ for NBC this fall; tells Mr. Media to start talking about it, stat!

Dario Scardapane serves as creator and executive producer on NBC's new ensemble medical drama series, "Trauma." The show debuts Monday, September 28 at 9 p.m. ET.

He worked as a journalist for various publications including Vogue, Los Angeles Times, Details and US Magazine. His film and television credits include the 1993 feature film "Posse," starring Mario Van Peebles, and the television pilot "Faceless," directed by Joe Carnahan.

"Trauma" is the first high-octane medical drama series to live exclusively in the field where the real action is. Like an adrenaline shot to the heart, "Trauma" is an intense, action-packed look at one of the most dangerous medical professions in the world: first responder paramedics. When emergencies occur, the trauma team from San Francisco City Hospital is first on the scene, traveling by land, by sea or by air to reach their victims in time.

Starring in "Trauma" are Cliff Curtis ("Push") as daredevil flight medic Reuben 'Rabbit' Palchuk, Derek Luke ("Notorious") as stoic paramedic Cameron Boone, Anastasia Griffith ("Damages") as strong-willed paramedic Nancy Carnahan, Aimee Garcia ("George Lopez") as tough rookie helicopter pilot Marisa Benez, Kevin Rankin ("Friday Night Lights") as edgy EMT Tyler Briggs, Taylor Kinney ("Fashion House") as rookie EMT Glenn Morris and Jamey Sheridan ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent") as mentor Dr. Joe Saviano.
