nurse-jackieAiring tonight on Showtime, the seventh season (and series) finale of the popular satirical drama NURSE JACKIE brings to a close what eventually became one of the most unconventional medical series in TV history. Centered on the life of an emergency room head nurse in an urban New York City hospital, the show follows her eventual addiction to prescription drugs and how that affects her career and personal life. Created by LIZ BIRKIS, LINDA WALLEN and EVAN DUNSKY, the cast includes EDIE FALCO, EVE BEST, ANNA DEVERE SMITH, MERRITT WEAVER,PAUL SCHULZE and PETER FACINELLI.

Despite the popularity of the series and much to the dismay of the NURSE JACKIE creative team, SHOWTIME decided to pull the plug on the show at the end of this season. During a press conference to promote the season, showrunner and exec producer CLYDE PHILLIPS talked about bringing it all to a close. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
