FOUR-TIME EMMY AWARD AND THREE-TIME SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AWARD WINNER ALFRE WOODARD TO JOIN THE CAST OF "THREE RIVERS"
NEW YORK, July 29 - Four-time Emmy Award winner and three-time Screen Actors Guild Award winner Alfre Woodard ("Miss Ever's Boys") has joined the cast of the medical drama THREE RIVERS, which premieres Sunday, Oct. 4 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Woodard will play Dr. Sophia Jordan a brilliant surgeon at the top of her field and head of surgery for the hospital. She has a vast amount of experience, training all around the world, which gives her an extremely diverse point-of-view.
Woodard's television credits include Emmy Award winning performances in "Hill Street Blues," "L.A. Law," "Miss Ever's Boys" and "The Practice." She has starred in numerous feature films including "Cross Creek," for which she was nominated for an Academy Award, Tyler Perry's "The Family That Preys" and "Radio."
THREE RIVERS is a medical drama that goes inside the emotionally complex lives of organ donors, the recipients and the surgeons at the preeminent transplant hospital in the country, where every moment counts. However, dealing with donor families in their darkest hour and managing the fears and concerns of apprehensive recipients takes much more than just a sharp scalpel. In this high stakes arena, in which every case is a race against the clock, these tenacious surgeons and medical professionals are the last hope for their patients.
