The Knick with Clive Owen Gets Cinemax Premiere Date

By Jacob Klein on May 17, 2014 to The Knick


While this is mainly an HBO-centric news blog we wanted to highlight a major upcoming series from HBO’s sister network: Cinemax. More and more Cinemax is bringing premium quality series into your home and since HBO and Cinemax are normally bundled together we’re going to to make sure you know when and where you can watch these series as they arrive.

We’ve covered The Knick in the past but we’d been waiting for an air date for quite some time. This week Cinemax gave us the answer:

The original drama series THE KNICK will launch its ten-episode season FRIDAY, AUG. 8 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on CINEMAX. Academy Award and Emmy winner Steven Soderbergh (“Traffic,” “Side Effects,” HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra”) directs Academy Award and Emmy nominee Clive Owen (“Children of Men,” HBO’s “Hemingway & Gellhorn”) in the entire season of the show. Set in downtown New York in 1900, THE KNICK centers on Knickerbocker Hospital and the groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff, who push the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics.

The writing team of Jack Amiel and Michael Begler (“Raising Helen,” “Big Miracle”) also serves as executive producers, along with Soderbergh, Owen, Michael Sugar (“Rendition”) and Gregory Jacobs (“Behind the Candelabra”). Michael Polaire (“Behind the Candelabra”) produces.

We’re going to be keeping tabs on The Knick and any other HBO-esque quality series that arrive on Cinemax in the future.  We’ve added Cinemax series premiere dates to our main schedule page. Give this one a try!  Here’s the latest trailer:

Creepy looking and yet….I am looking forward to watching this series. Eerie!!

I could see where this could be an interesting times in history and medical history to explore, but, man the soundtrack for that clip was really odd. as in jarringly odd.
