Anupam Kher to star in American TV series Bellevue
The actor will be reuniting with his Sense8 co-star Freema Agyeman for the show
Anupam Kher has joined the team of American medical drama Bellevue. The actor, who has also starred in The Big Sick and Silver Linings Playbook, will be reuniting with his Sense8 co-star Freema Agyeman for the show.
"I'm excited to be part of this project. Bellevue is anticipated as the next big thing in international television. As an actor it helps me widen my horizons and also gives me a opportunity to be a part of world class talent. Looking forward to the shoot," he says.
The show is written by David Schulner and produced by Eric Manheimer, MD, the former medical director at New York City's Bellevue Hospital and author of the memoir Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital which inspired the series.
The character-driven medical drama follows the new director of Bellevue Hospital, whose maverick approach disrupts the status quo while always prioritising patient care. Anupam will be seen essaying the role of Dr. Anil Kapoor, one of the oldest doctors at the hospital.
