Ving Rhames is set to star opposite Alfred Molina is David E. Kelley’s TNT medical drama pilot Chelsea General.

Just what we need... another TV medical drama series. But there's obviously a reason why.

The series is said to be based on CNN's chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta’s upcoming novel titled Monday Mornings which follows the lives of 5 surgeons "as they push the limits of their abilities and confront their personal and professional failings," says Deadline.

And further...

It uses as a backdrop the hospital’s Monday Morbidity and Mortality conference, considered the most secretive meeting in all of medicine, where doctors gather for a confidential review of complications and errors in patient care.

Rhames has signed on to play a "physically imposing former professional football player who now is the most celebrated trauma chief in the country."

I don't why I chuckled when I read that description. Marsellus Wallace is about to go medieval on some trauma room asses.

But should be a steady paycheck for Ving... assuming the series gets picked up; and David E. Kelley certainly has a fairly solid track record.

Gupta is executive producing.

    I asked my fiance wtf happened to Ving man, he was the best! And she replied "Guns....and Butter." LMBAO For real, very happy to see he's back on track with something of merit.
