Starring an outstanding internationally-renowned cast including Owen Teale (Game of Thrones) and Claire van der Boom (Hawaii Five-O), Pulse is a stunning medical drama based on a true story.
A high-flying financial analyst had it all … before a failing kidney landed her at death’s door, and a transplant offered her a second chance. Inspired by the man who saved her life, Frankie (Claire van der Boom) alters course to become a doctor herself, working and learning in the high-stakes, high-pressure world of the cardio-thoracic and renal wards of City West - a major teaching hospital. Along with her colleagues, both friends and rivals alike, Frankie must face the political, personal and professional realities of working at the coalface of an ailing medical system. But for Frankie especially, a hospital can be a dangerous world.
Though uniquely qualified to understand her patients, as a transplant recipient she is also vulnerable to infection, and her compassion for others may just endanger her own life. Frankie's determination to succeed takes her on a rollercoaster ride from terror to triumph, from heartbreak to happiness, from fragility to strength. She’s driven to use her second chance to save others, but learns that’s not always possible, and when you can’t save the very person who saved you, sometimes the real gift is in letting go.
Pulse stars an exceptional support cast including Pallavi Sharda (Lion), Liam McIntyre (Spartacus: War of the Damned), Andrea Demetriades (Janet King), Arka Das (Top of The Lake), Blessing Mokgohloa (Hunters), Susie Porter (Puberty Blues), Dalip Sondhi, Penny Cook (A Country Practice) and Renee Lim (Please Like Me).
Producers and creative powerhouses behind the series, Kris Wyld (East West 101, Wildside, G.P., The Strip, White Collar Blue) and Antony I. Ginnane (High Tide, The Lighthorsemen) bring to the table a wealth of intellectual and creative strength along with an unparalleled level of business experience, while Executive Producer David Ogilvy’s list of credits is illustrative of the best in contemporary Australian drama (The Code, Rake, Paper Giants, The Straits).
