Cinemax has released a new The Knick trailer. The 10-episode series takes place in New York in 1900 and stars Clive Owen as a surgeon at Knickerbocker Hospital during an era in which antibiotics did not exist, medical procedures were extremely dangerous, and the mortality rates were insanely high. This is the longest trailer we’ve gotten so far, and it showecases not only the gory medical proceedings (we may have a challenger against Hannibal for Most Gruesome Show), but also civil unrest. I’m eager to see how director Steven Soderbergh brings it all together.
Hit the jump to check out The Knick trailer. The series premieres Friday, August 8th at 10pm/9c.
