The Knick Teasers

In a new set of three The Knick teasers, we see more flashes of Steven Soderbergh‘s upcoming Cinemax show. All are pretty short, just like the first, but they feature that same Colin Stetson baritone sax honk, and super-ominous shots of star Clive Owen, who plays a turn of the century surgeon in New York’s Knickerbocker Hospital.

Check out the three below, and link back here for the first. Read More »

Steven Soderbergh may have retired from making feature films, but he’s not done with telling stories. His next project is The Knick, a limited series premiering on Cinemax this summer. Clive Owen stars as a doctor working out of New York’s Knickerbocker Hospital around the turn of the century, when most of the conveniences and safety practices of modern medicine we not yet even theories.

Discussions of Steven Soderbergh‘s “retirement” hadn’t gone on very long before the writer/producer/director clarified that he was really moving away from feature films, not necessarily from working in moving images. Television projects have been on the table, and he’s talked about a couple. (Info on The Sot-Weed Factor is here, for example.)

Now there’s a new one: a Cinemax series called The Knick, which Soderbergh’s will produce and direct, with Clive Owen starring. The show is “a period series set in New York in 1900,” with a ten-episode commitment from the channel. Soderbergh will direct all ten episodes, which depict working life in a hospital before the development of modern medical practices. Read More »
