Former Cubs Reporter Jordana Spiro Now Works For The Outfit

She's baaaack!

Not that Spiro herself was so much the problem with one of our all-time favorite whipping boys. But a mob doctor?

The early descriptions are not promising - but wait 'til you see the trailer.

"Hour centers on a young female surgeon who juggles her career and her lifelong debt to the South Chicago mob," Variety reports.

As opposed to the Irish and Nigerian mobs that Jennifer Beals had to contend with on Chicago Code.

Deadline describes the new show this way:

"The medical drama centers on Grace Delvin (Spiro), one of Chicago's top young cardiothoracic surgeons who, to save her gambling-indebted brother, is forced to moonlight as a 'mob doctor.'"

*

From TVWise:

"During the day, Grace must deal with the emotionally compelling cases at Roosevelt Medical - a toddler in need of a heart transplant, an elderly man desperate to donate a lung to his sick wife, the mass chaos in the wake of a two-train collision on the 'L.'

"But in her other vastly different world, she must juggle an onslaught of mob-related demands, including operating in mob-sanctioned locations, removing bullets from dead bodies to hide incriminating evidence, saving a juiced-up race horse and covertly helping an aging mobster with his erectile dysfunction.

"All the while, Grace must keep her dual life a secret from everyone. The only one who knows the true scope of Grace's activities is the man to whom Grace owes her debt: the charming and diabolical Southside mob boss Constantine Alexander (William Forsythe), an oddly compassionate killer whose relationship with Grace is more than it seems."

*

Wait. This actually looks good.

The series continues shooting in Chicago this summer.
