A medical drama on cable is a little bit different than a medical drama on a broadcast network. At least in terms of who lives and who dies.
To be deliberately vague so as not to spoil the debut of "Monday Mornings" (Monday, 7 and 10:05 p.m., TNT), in one of the storylines a character dies. A character who probably would have lived if this show has been on ABC or CBS.
"Probably true, yeah," said creator/executive producer David E. Kelley. "The best part about TNT so far is once you sign on to do a show, they say, 'Go make your show.' And you're not getting a lot of those network notes. That's actually been quite joyous. And it's not that I felt oppressed by network notes in the past, because I probably was afforded freedom than most to tell the stories we wanted to tell."
