Disney’s ABC Signature is developing a brand new medical drama called “The Front Line”, which is described as a feel-good medical procedural centered on Sebastian “Bass” Clark, a professional athlete-turned-doctor who left the front line of the football field to start over on the front lines of healthcare as a medical resident – a transition that a handful of real-life NFL players actually have made.

The project follows Bass and an ensemble of doctors and staff at a prestigious Pittsburgh hospital as they navigate high-stakes medical cases with all the adrenaline, warmth and big-heartedness of a great sports movie.

The project is being executive produced by Michael Strahan and Constance Schwartz-Morini’s SMAC Entertainment.   Marc Halsey (The Resident) is also writing the series and executive producing it.

Additional executive producers include SMAC Entertainment’s Strahan Schwartz-Morini and Thea Mann.

The project is still in the early stages of development and has received a script commitment from ABC.  Should this project be made in a series, we should expect to see it released on ABC and Hulu in the United States and as Star Original on Disney+.
