LOS ANGELES, May 8 (UPI) -- TNT says it will air producer David E. Kelley's new Oregon-set medical drama series, "Monday Mornings," starring Ving Rhames and Alfred Molina.

The cast will also include Jamie Bamber, Jennifer Finnigan, Bill Irwin, Keong Sim, Sarayu Rao and Emily Swallow, the cable network announced Tuesday. The 10-episode season is to air next summer.

Kelley penned the pilot episode, which was directed and executive-produced by Bill D'Elia. It is based on a book by neurosurgeon Dr. Sanjay Gupta, M.D., who, along with Kelley, will serve as executive producer on the show.

"'Monday Mornings' is a superb drama brought to life with passion by a gifted ensemble cast and some of the best creative minds working in television today," Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies, said in a statement. "David, Sanjay and their team have given us an outstanding addition to TNT's stable of high-profile dramas, and we're very proud to have it on the network."
