Mehcad Brooks, David Harewood, and Chyler Leigh also star.
Why You Should Watch: A girl super heroine is just what the world needs now.

#2 Code Black
Marcia Gay Harden stars in this medical drama about an emergency room in Los Angeles that’s overcrowded, understaffed and under-equipped. But the doctors get it done, because this is a television show! Based on Ryan McGarry’s award-winning documentary of the same name, Code Black also stars Luis Guzman, Raza Jeffrey, Benjamin Hollingsworth and Bonnie Somerville.
