Mercy Street

This brand new and exclusive series goes beyond the battlefield and into the lives of Americans on the homefront as they face unprecedented challenges of one of the most turbulent times in US history. Starring Mary Elizabeth Wanstead, Hannah James and Gary Cole, this period medical drama plays out against the backdrop of the divisive mid-19th century, as Americans were pitted against each other and families were broken by war. Alexandria, Virginia, 1862. Mary Phinney, a staunch New England abolitionist, and Emma Green, a naïve Confederate belle, collide at Mansion House, the Green family's luxury hotel that has been transformed into a Union Army hospital. Ruled under martial law, the border town of Alexandria is now the melting pot of the region, filled with soldiers, civilians, female volunteers, doctors, wounded men from both sides, runaway slaves, prostitutes, speculators, and spies.
