EXCLUSIVE: Vondie Curtis-Hall (For the People) & Gabriel Sloyer (Power) have been cast as series regulars opposite Parisa Fitz-Henley in Triage, ABC’s second cycle medical drama pilot from David Cornue, Erica Messer and Jon M. Chu.

Created by Cornue, Triage is a character-driven medical drama that follows pioneering surgeon Finley Briar (Fitz-Henley) over three distinct decades at the same hospital. With the evolution of medicine as the backdrop, the show explores the interconnected careers, friendships and romances of Finley and her colleagues, and their tenuous relationship with time.

Curtis-Hall, appearing in years 2010-2030, will play Dr. Jonathan Walters, a brilliant surgeon and an intimidating authority figure at New York Trinity. He takes Dr. Finley Briar under his wing despite blowback from his superiors.

In addition to Fitz-Henley, Curtis-Hall and Sloyer join previously cast Bex Taylor-Klaus and Andrew Richardson.
