A transplant offers a young woman a second chance
Pulse, a medical drama set in a teaching hospital in Sydney’s western suburbs, is inspired by a true story of a transplant patient who became a doctor. It stars Claire van der Boom (Sisters of War) as Frankie Bell, a second year practising doctor who, eight years after her own kidney transplant, is set to start on a renal rotation. It also stars Andrea Demetriades (Janet King), Owen Teale (Game of Thrones), Liam McIntyre (Spartacus: War of the Damned), Susie Porter (Puberty Blues), Arka Das (Top of The Lake), Penny Cook (A Country Practice), Blessing Mokgohloa (Hunters), Pallavi Sharda (Lion) and Renee Lim (Please Like Me). The series was created by Kris Wyld, Michael Miller and Mel Hill and produced by Krys Wyld and Antony I. Ginnane, with Beyond Entertainment’s David Ogilvy and Ron Saunders and the ABC’s Sally Riley and Kym Goldsworthy as executive producers.
