LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – “Monday Mornings,” David E. Kelley’s return to the medical drama, has been approved by TNT. The series – formerly known as “Chelsea General” – is a collaboration between “Chicago Hope” honcho Kelley and CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, upon whose book the series is based.

Set at fictional Chelsea General Hospital in Portland, Oregon, “Monday Mornings” stars Ving Rhames, Alfred Molina and “Battlestar Galactica’s” Jamie Bamber.

It follows the lives of the doctors as they struggle with their personal and professional failings. The series’ title refers to the hospital’s weekly morbidity-and-mortality conference.

The 10-episode season is slated to premiere in summer 2013.
