Unfortuantely, due to low Nielson's ratings, Gideon's Crossing was cancelled in May 2001. However, this critically acclaimed, and undeniably provocative and sophisticated show, still has a large fan base. Andre Braugher (previously of Homicide: Life on the Street) stars as Ben Gideon. A doctor of great skill, he also has a great bedside manner. He heads the experimental oncology ward at a fictional teaching hospital in New England. Based on the work of Dr. Jerome Groupman, Gideon fights to inspire the next generation of doctors. The cast includes Ruben Blades, Rhona Mitra, Hamish Linklater, Ravi Kapoor, Sophie Keller, Russell Hornsby, Jascha Washington, Meagan Gregory, Brian Wiltshire, Barry Miller, and Eric Dane.
