Zachary Quinto to Headline NBC Medical Drama Pilot

Heroes star Zachary Quinto is returning to NBC as the titular character in Wolf, a one-hour medical drama pilot from writer-producer Michael Grassi, producer-director Lee Toland Krieger and executive producer Greg Berlanti.

Teddy Sears & Tamberla Perry Join

Sears will play Dr. Josh Nichols, a neurosurgeon who left a private practice in San Francisco to work at Bronx General. Josh is clinical, exacting and relies on technology to treat his patients — the opposite of Wolf. The two will go toe-to-toe and develop a competitive relationship full of tension.

Perry will play Dr. Carol Pierce, the head of psychology at Bronx General and Wolf’s longtime friend. She works as one of the most sought-after psychiatrists in the city while also navigating a strained personal relationship at the hospital. She recruits Wolf to work alongside her at Bronx General to create a neuropsychology dream team, helping patients who have been deemed hopeless.

Alex MacNicoll, Spence Moore II, Aury Krebs & Ashleigh LaThrop Join

Alex MacNicoll, Spence Moore II, Aury Krebs and Ashleigh LaThrop have been cast opposite Zachary Quinto in the NBC medical drama pilot Wolf.

MacNicoll plays Dr. Van Markus, who struggles around patients in crisis because of a rare, undiagnosed condition he’s lived with his whole life. He experiences a crisis of confidence when he discovers Dr. Wolf keeps him close to study this condition.

Moore plays Dr. Jacob Nash, an ex-college football star who, after an injury, pivoted to studying medicine. Jacob secretly worries he suffers from concussion-related brain trauma and self-medicates to cope with his fear.

Krebs plays Dr. Dana Dang, who has amassed a social media following by providing mental health tips and tricks. While Dana is transparent about her anxiety, the truth is she’d rather pop a Xanax than work to identify the root of her issues.

LaThrop plays Dr. Ericka Kinney, a first-year intern at Bronx General who has always lived her life by the books. Now with Dr. Wolf as her new attending, Ericka’s thrust into the most unpredictable environment possible while also juggling to keep a secret from her fellow interns.

Release Date

It’s unclear when Dr. Wolf will air, given the ongoing actors’ strike. NBC, however, has had original scripted programming this fall (unlike other networks) with the returns of Magnum P.I. and Quantum Leap and new dramas Found and The Irrational on its schedule.
