Dr. Carter is back ... sort of, Nathan writes.

🩺 State of play: Noah Wyle — who played Dr. John Carter on the seminal hit NBC series "ER" — is donning a lab coat once again.

  • He'll play a key role in a 15-episode medical drama called "The Pitt" that's being developed for streaming service Max, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
  • It's not an "ER" reboot, but it is led by "ER" producers John Wells and R. Scott Gemmill.

💭 Nathan's thought bubble: As a tried-and-true "ER" devotee, I'm pretty excited about this. But nothing will bring back Carter's one-time love interest Lucy.
