Kay wrote and produced the series.

Lucy Forbes directed the first four episodes and Tom Kingsley helmed the other three.

It follows a doctor "who we find wending his way through the ranks of hospital hierarchy -- junior enough to suffer the crippling hours, but senior enough to face a constant barrage of terrifying responsibilities," a synopsis said.

"Adam is clinging to his personal life as he is increasingly overwhelmed by stresses at work: the 97-hour weeks, the life and death decisions, and all the while knowing the hospital parking meter is earning more than him."
