Originally created by best-selling novelist, Michael Crichton, “ER” was not only lauded for its writing and acting, but for its real-to-life emergency scenarios. Set in the emergency room of the fictional County General Hospital in Cook County, Chicago, “ER” helped launch the careers of George Clooney, Julianna Margulies, Anthony Edwards, Noah Wyle and many others.
