10 years after ER, Anthony Edwards returns to television in Zero Hour
NEW YORK (AP) - A decade after Dr Mark Greene hung up his white lab coat for good on ER, Anthony Edwards is back as the star of a new television series.
He plays Hank Galliston, a magazine publisher wrapped up in a historical mystery after his wife is kidnapped on ABC's Zero Hour, which premieres Feb 14. The action thriller requires an audience to concentrate as the story unfolds layer by layer.
The road back to series television took Edwards many miles to travel - literally thousands upon thousands.
Edwards' character Greene was the heart of what was then television's most popular drama before the actor bowed out after eight years. Upon leaving, "I didn't really have a plan other than I knew I wasn't going to jump into a series again, and I knew that I was really tired and burnt out", he said.
